Celebrating over 40 years of ministry!

Who We Are...

A member of the Lutheran Church (LCMS), located in San Diego's North County, serving the communities of Oceanside, Camp Pendleton, and Vista.

We gladly embrace brothers and sisters of all backgrounds and denominations.  We began as an outreach to the military, so we have a special place in our hearts for those that serve at Camp Pendleton.  Our worship is reverent yet informal and friendly, with both traditional/liturgical as well as contemporary elements.  Our worship is "user friendly" and joyful.
