WELCOME TO

CAPTIVATE CHURCH

OUR WHY

Most people live disconnected from God, His family, and their purpose. 

 

In fact, only 5% of the people of San Diego have a church home. 

 

We exist to invite people into family here and in heaven. 

 

We do this by ensuring every name is on a Corner Card and every person is in a Church Home. 

 

If we can End Spiritual Loneliness, then San Diego will look more like heaven.

OUR VISION

End Spiritual Loneliness

OUR MISSION

Captivate every corner of San Diego with the love of Jesus

OUR VALUES

Family. Freedom. Following.

Beliefs

 

 

What we believe about God:

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. 
(Genesis 1:1, 26-27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

What we believe about Jesus:

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again to Earth to reign as King of kings, and Lord of lords.

(Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14-15; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13)

What we believe about the Holy Spirit:

The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christ-follower with the power for living, understanding spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christ-follower seeks to live under His control daily.

(2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12; 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; 5:1; Galatians 5:25)

What we believe about the Bible:

The Bible is God’s Word to all mankind. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.

(2 Timothy 3:16; 1:13; 2 Peter 1:20; 21:2; Psalm 119:9, 105, 160; 12:6; Proverbs 30:5)

What we believe about eternity:

We are created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence.

(John 3:16; John 2:25; John 5:11-13; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; 1 John 5:11-12; Matthew 25:31-46)

What we believe about mankind:

We are made in the image of God, to be like Him in character. We are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although we have tremendous potential for good, we are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin”. This attitude separates us from God.

(Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1-2)

What we believe about salvation:

Salvation is a gift from God to all people. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can we be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life is assured the moment we receive Jesus Christ into our life by faith.

(Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6; 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1)

What we believe about eternal security:

Because God gives eternal life through Jesus Christ, when we truly accept Him we are secure in salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by our self-effort. It is the grace and power of God that gives us this security.

(John 10:29; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25; 10:10; 14:1; 1 Peter 1:3-5)
