It's the start of an amazing journey of faith

We offer in-person and online worship services every weekend, in a variety of styles.

RB Community is a church located in north San Diego within the beautiful suburbs of Rancho Bernardo. We draw our faith family from surrounding neighborhoods of Poway, Del Sur, Escondido, 4S Ranch and PQ. With a 50 year legacy of generosity to our neighbors, we continue to embrace Biblical principles and compassionate service in the name of Jesus.

We offer in-person and online worship services every weekend, in a variety of styles. Adult education options run throughout the week, and service opportunities for all ages run throughout the year. We have a unique preschool recognized for its inclusivity for children of all abilities, and we are blessed with a stunning campus of multiple buildings for worship, family ministries, fellowship and community programs. There are things happening every day of the week at RB Community.

We have a large staff to cover all our programming, including pastors with doctoral degrees and advanced seminary training. Our members are active in a variety of events that impact the community and bless the world. Our vision is grounded in the words of Jesus, “From the believers shall flow rivers of living water.” John 7:38. In short, we believe encounters with Jesus transform lives.

We invite you to worship, or to ask questions – see for yourself if God is calling you to our family.

our story
Founded as the first church in the community plan for Rancho Bernardo, our church has served the surrounding Poway, Escondido, 4S, Penasquitos and north San Diego neighborhoods for over 50 years. We are a Presbyterian church in the PCUSA family of churches.
our purpose
Put simply, our church exists “For the glory of God alone.” The Latin, “Soli Deo gloria,” claimed by the church leaders as a centering belief, referenced by Johann Sebastian Bach on his musical pieces, is our starting point for our purpose and our beliefs.
our future
Our leadership of Elders and Pastoral staff focus on 3 to 4 key areas of our life together through which we might glorify God and faithfully steward our resources. Read details about this year’s focus on the Elders section of our Ministries page.
you
Believers belong in a faith family - a place to join folks of all ages, grow in Christ, and bless the world. We offer you a chance to learn more about us and your place in God’s kingdom through a monthly dinner with the Senior Pastor. See the Events page for details.
