Thanks for visiting our website. We hope Christ Community Church of San Diego is a place you can call home.   Our church family seeks to welcome everyone, regardless of past religious experience or affiliations. We desire to function much like the early church we read about in the Bible. We welcome people of all races, nationalities, age groups, and socioeconomic backgrounds. We believe the Bible teaches us, the church, to be loving and accepting of all people, while at the same time, remaining biblically pure in doctrine and teaching.  

Our services offer a blend of new contemporary music with older traditional favorites. Video and additional media are often incorporated into the line-up to inspire us and provide clear examples of the topic we are learning during the service.

We believe you will find a casual, relaxed atmosphere filled with loving people seeking to build a community of authentic relationships. No need for “shows”, “image management”, “rituals”, or any other fake attitudes that can be found in much of our daily lives. We want to be real with each other as we learn about God. 


Christ Community Church is an interdenominational Christian church that is not affiliated with any specific denomination. We are Bible based and welcome people of various religious backgrounds that desire to learn about becoming a Christian through developing a relationship with God through Jesus Christ.


Christ Community Church of San Diego (CCC) was planted in the community of Scripps Ranch in 1987 by Pastor Phil Hester and the Southern Baptist Convention. Our original name was Northstar Community Church, which was changed to Christ Community Church of San Diego in 2003 when the church became an independent community church. Originally, the church met in Pastor Phil's home, was moved to Jerabek Elementary School, and then Miramar Ranch Elementary School. In 1999, Pastor Phil relocated to teach church planting at the seminary level in Georgia.


Pastor Darrell Dunlap was called as our senior pastor in September 2000. The church moved to the Scripps Ranch Library community room on Scripps Lake Blvd in 2001 and then over to Miramar College in Mira Mesa in November 2002. We met at Miramar College, utilizing classrooms, lecture halls, and the large outdoor patio until October 2010 when we moved into our current facility on Kearny Mesa Road in Mira Mesa, one block north of Miramar Road.
