I go to church alone. I always have. And since moving to the San Diego area in '09, I haven't found THE CHURCH that seemed like the right fit. I walked in, and IMMEDIATELY felt the freedom to enter in to real WORSHIP. There was a very loving, laid back feeling, and even though I sat in the middle of my row, people filled in right next to me. they smiled and said "Hello." When I was singing along, I felt overcome with emotion, at one point, and this woman from behind me, comes over, throws her arms around me and says, "Amen, right?" I just nodded ad choaked back tears, but I KNEW we were on the same page. I never even saw who did it, but it was this "open and loving" vibe that the entire house put out, that made it feel like an authentic church full of "God's kids." I love it, and that's where I am going from now on. If you want to bust out of the uptight religious box, and enter in to a Christ centered community of grace and sound biblical teaching, I suggest this church.

I fell in love with this church since day 1. Pastor Harry is a very real pastor(meaning he will tell you he's made mistakes, and that he isn't perfect.) He has a sense of humor like no other. I have been looking for a church for a very, very long time, and have never found one that I was truely comfortable in, or looked forward to attending on a weekly basis. After being introduced to this church by a collegue, I couldn't believe how lucky I was to have finally found the church that didn't make me feel like an outcast, or a sinner, like some churches can do. This is the most casual church environment you could ever imagine (some wear shorts, others wear flip flops, and sometimes sweats), where the pastors are a delight, the door is always open to anyone, and your welcomed with open arms. If you are looking for somewhere to truely feel accepted, then this is the place. You won't be dissapointed! Check out the website at www.thechurchatrb.org
