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!  


Current Message Series

"Partners In The Kingdom" 


"Partnership" was a concept Jesus understood. He and His disciples walked the length and breadth of Israel as a tightly-knit team. Through dangers and difficulties, the Twelve refused to separate because Jesus taught them that they were interdependent on one another.

And so it is with us. We need to partner together for God because, well, that's the way He designed us. And that's the way we experience the life that Jesus offers; a life full of peace, joy, purpose and meaning. 

Our current message series is titled, "Partners In The Kingdom". This series came about in response to our need as a church to expand our small group ministry. It's all about pouring out fresh vision and strategy. Exciting times!

If you would like me to email you the messages, just let me know! 


Our main services are held at

10:00 am and 11:45 am

"Are you an early riser? Come on out to our 10:00 am service. Better yet, come on out at 9:15 am to check out our pre-service 'life group' for some prayer and encouragement... especially if you're interested in serving on our worship team, multi-media ministry, or transportation ministry."

"NOT an early riser? Then come on out to our 11:45 am service. Whichever service time you prefer, come as you are, meet some new friends, hear an uplifting message and get some REAL hope and love. You will be glad you came."  

-Pastor Paul and Danica

(Sunday Morning Service)


Sanctuary Church loves children and knows that God has a custom-designed plan for them as well! There's a lot we can learn about God through our children because Jesus said, "Let the children come to Me, and do not hinder them. The Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these!"

The children are in the main service for praise and worship then they head off to their classrooms for age-specific and engaging Bible study with fun-related arts and crafts. Your children will feel welcomed! We look forward to helping meet your family's needs.

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.
