About us

As a Seventh-day Adventist Christian church, we are a faith community rooted in the beliefs described in the Bible. In San Marcos, we provide a family atmosphere by offering classes and activities for all ages that will connect you to new friends and and bring you closer to Christ.

Our church family is a strong believer in Christian education. That’s why we support our local Junior Academy and are committed to spiritual maturity and academic excellence, providing the best opportunities to our children and youth.

Though methods have evolved over the years, our mission has always been to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Along the way, we are committed to equipping individuals to serve our communities taking advantage of any opportunity to share our Christ’s love.

We welcome you to connect with us and join our mission: “Growing and serving through Christ’s truth and grace.”

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU VISIT:

We get together and worship on Saturdays with Bible classes for all ages starting at 10AM and church service starting at 11AM

We are a church family that enjoys meeting new friends.

We are comfortable dressing in anything from casual to formal attire and hope that you will love singing with us in praise and worship.  We enjoy a mix of traditional and contemporary hymns and praise songs and we love when talented artists perform special music during the service.

Be ready to engage in different classes in a small group format, fellowship meals, vespers, seminars, various social activities, sports and clubs for children and youth.
