Who We Are

Our mission is to make disciples in Burbank and beyond, baptizing in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey all Jesus has commanded, while trusting God in everything.

We are called to be a place where all people believe in Jesus Christ, belong to a worshiping community, and become the person God intended them to be.

Our Services

What are services like?
Our 9:30am Worship Gathering is a more traditional service with a blend of music from our praise band as well as songs from our Chancel Choir. Our 11:00am Worship Gathering has music led solely by our praise band. Nursery and children's programs are offered during both services.

What is the community like?
We are best described as a multi-generational and multi-racial community that is focused on growing as disciples of Jesus Christ.

What if I'm not a Christian?
This is a great place to come to ask questions and learn more. There is a Welcomer's class at 9:15am each Sunday that meets in our library. This class is geared more toward adults who are exploring Christianity or new in their faith.
