To become a biblically functioning community of followers of Jesus Christ.


To reach everyone with the Gospel and lead them to becoming fully devoted disciples of Jesus Christ.



We seek to glorify God through worshipping Him and Him alone, individually and corporately. 


We seek to build God honoring, biblically grounded relationships with others within our church and local community.


We seek to serve God by giving cheerfully and sacrificially of our time and resources as we partner with Him in serving others within our church, community and world. 


We seek to develop mature, fully devoted disciples of Jesus Christ. 


We seek to reach our community for Christ by reflecting His nature, inviting others to join us, and by preparing to give an answer for why we believe. 


  • The Bible is the supreme authority in the life of every believer
  • Lost people matter to God, therefore, they matter to us
  • Teaching and programming must remain doctrinally pure, while being culturally relevant and life transforming
  • Excellence honors God and inspires people
  • We love everyone and are inclusive of all people, regardless of race, gender, socioeconomics, past religious experiences, or depth of their relationship with God
  • Full devotion to God is normal for all believers; anything less is not full devotion
  • Believers are gifted by God to do work within the church and should serve in their area of spiritual giftedness; men and women are equally gifted to serve
  • Accountability within Christian fellowship is necessary for every believer to grow in their relationship with the Lord


CCC was planted in the community of Scripps Ranch in 1987 by Pastor Phil Hester. Our original name was Northstar Community Church, which was changed to Christ Community Church of San Diego in 2003. Originally, the church met in Pastor Phil's home, was moved to Jerabeck Elementary School, 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.
