We live in a storied universe: a story about how the God of Israel, the creator of the world, has acted astoundingly to rescue a lost and broken world through the death and resurrection of Jesus. While the full scope of that rescue is not yet apparent, God has created a community of witnesses to this good news, the church. This is where we come in.

Christ Presbyterian Church (CPC) was birthed out of a small prayer group which started in 1994. A year later, the group invited Scott Bridges to plant the new church. In December, 2003, CPC took residence in her current downtown location so that she might fulfill her purpose to be a church in Santa Barbara for Santa Barbara.

In 2008, God called Scott to Maryland. Our current pastor, Kyle Wells, has been with us since February 2010.
