We can honestly say it has been decades to a life time to bring us together for this point in history. God has uniquely prepared us and possibly yourself to be a part of Church Santa Cruz. This web site for example has not been done before and it has already gone through many changes for what you see today. We pray this site is only the beginning of how we may use this new tool as God is already showing us many more things we can do with it. When Covid hit the original founders already developed some wonderful friendships where we began to discover our mutual passions for the lost and His Church. With over 50,000 denominations, decreasing Church attendance, increasing spiritual darkness we pray for revival, while asking God what can we do. We asked questions such as, “how can we continue to celebrate the uniqueness of many churches, while still at times coming together to love, support and encourage one another.” Our vision and mission came from these discussions and answered prayers. We also asked, “what beliefs can bring us together”, which resulted with our statements of faith. This was really difficult and took many years as we did not want to be known for what we are against, but what we are for. In addition God would show us over two pages of very achievable opportunities we could do as One Church to help grow the spiritual and physical depth of our local churches and Helping Ministries.

In 2020 the founders began with differing gifts, leadership styles, experiences, funding ability, and started working together to keep alive a wonderful evangelistic concert called the Boardwalk Blitz while the government was shutting down everything including most church experiences. God would miraculously show us how to have the concert so the government could not shut us down and we saw over 50 people accept Jesus Christ as their Savior and all those who attended were greatly encouraged by the Holy Spirit inspired experience. We followed this in 2022 with a growing attendance, 9 churches participating and even more accepting Jesus as Savior. Praises to God!! The Blitz for 2023 is changing again and we pray God will greatly support the efforts of many. The Spirit of God is moving as church leaders are becoming comfortable loving and serving each other as we all have a desire to see people believe in Jesus and attend a good church or ministry that will inspire and disciple them to grow in their faith recognizing we are ALL part of One Church.

While all the above is going on, we continue to work on the web site, add new churches and helping ministries and are having videos made for every leader of church and “Helping Ministries”. Our prayer is if we humble ourselves and see God’s Church as He does and live and love better as One Church, God would be greatly pleased, we would experience a powerful revival and God would entrust to His Church the lives of many to be discipled. Please let us know if you and other church leaders and Helping Ministries have plans to work together where we might be able to help support in promotions, leadership, strategies or financial support. When possible we will prayerfully consider how we might support what God is doing through you and others… Grace and Peace always, Mark, Jesse, Brian, Glen, Matt, Drew, Danny, Mike, Steve, Brandon, Twin Lakes Church, Santa Cruz Baptist Church, Gospel Community Church, Regeneration Church, Faith Community Church, Santa Cruz Bible Church, Scotts Valley Vineyard, Redeemer Anglican, YWAM, Santa Cruz Convergence, Tradewinds, ++++ If your name is not on this list, please reach out, and let’s connect and dream about ways we can support one another.
