Welcome to Sanctuary Church!

Thanks for visiting us on the web! We are a brand new growing non-denominational* church in Escondido, CA.

Recently a friend asked me, "Why did you decide to pastor a new church in Escondido"? I thought that was a good question. The why needs to come before the what.

The textbook answer to this question is found in our mission statement: 

"Leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ."

That's the motivation behind everything we do, because we have learned that as we grow in our relationship with Jesus, we have found "life and that to the full!" (John 10:10) Our desire is that you would also experience this life... a peace that passes all understanding, joy inexpressible, purpose and meaning and... well, I can go on and on.

Come on out this Sunday and experience it for yourself!  



- Pastor Paul and Danica Bartelme



* Non-Denominational - In Christianity, non-denominational churches are those not formally aligned with an established denomination, or that remain otherwise officially autonomous. This, however, does not preclude an identifiable standard among such congregations. Non-denominational congregations may establish a functional denomination by means of mutual recognition of, or accountability to other congregations and leaders with commonly held doctrine, policy and worship without formalizing external direction or oversight in such matters.
