Welcome to Sanctuary Church!

(Scroll down for directions to our new location!)

Thanks for visiting us on the web! Sanctuary Church is a new growing * non denominational Christian church in Escondido, Ca, San Diego North County. 

Recently, a friend asked me, "Why did you decide to pastor a new church here in Escondido, Ca, San Diego North County?"

I thought that was a good question, because the why needs to come before the what. The answer to this question is found in our mission statement:


We exist to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus.

... which leads to FREEEEEEEDOM!



As Christians here in North County, that's the motivation behind everything we do, because we have learned that as we grow in our relationship with Jesus, we experience LIFE and that to the full (Jn 10:10)! Our desire is that you would also experience this life filled to overflowing with peace and joy, purpose and meaning.

Come on out this Sunday to charming Escondido, Ca and experience it for yourself!


Pastor Paul and Danica Bartelme

We moved!

We now meet at L.R. Green Elementary School in Escondido off of Bear Valley Parkway, just north of Kit Carson Park.

L.R. Green is 3 minutes away from the Via Rancho Parkway off-ramp from the I-15 freeway.

Exit Via Rancho Parkway and travel east. Pass the Westfield Shopping Mall and Kit Carson Park. The road turns into Bear Valley Parkway. Look for our signs on the street!

Turn left on Las Palmas and take your second driveway on the left.

* Non denominational - In Christianity, non denominational churches are those not formally aligned with an established Christian denomination, or that remain otherwise officially autonomous. This is the case for Sanctuary Church. This, however, does not preclude an identifiable standard among such Christian congregations who worship Jesus. Non denominational congregations may establish a functional denomination by means of mutual recognition of, or accountability to, other Christian congregations and leaders with commonly held doctrine, policy and worship without formalizing external direction or oversight in such matters. Non denominational churches are not uncommon in San Diego North County, and in Escondido / San Marcos as well.
