We're a confessionally and historically baptistic church, that means we are congregational in our governance and the only authority outside of our local church is Jesus Christ.  

We associate with The Pillar Network, a like minded community of baptist churches.  We are also in full working cooperation with the Southern Baptist Convention

Our pastors are accountable to their Savior Jesus Christ, to one another, to the congregation, and to a cohort of cross-denominational, confessionally-minded pastors in the San Diego area.  

We believe God's Word is sufficient in teaching us what a healthy church looks like.  So many of our convictions are consistent with what you might find among other 9marks churches.
