WE ARE SO GLAD YOU ARE HERE!
We seek to do church much more like a Family than like an organization. As such, we would love to get to know you more and help you get connected to the Paseo Family! Take a few minutes to learn about us below and fill out our Connect Card.
Everything we do is built out of a core DNA that defines who we are and dictates our focus and activity. From Paseo Kids to our adult Growth Groups to our Sunday Morning Worship, you will find this DNA in everything we do. It is, after all, who we are!
Grace always trumps rules; encouragement always outshines fault-finding.The spirit of Paseo del Rey is uplifting, freeing, refreshing, empowering.
God speaks into our hearts through graceful, practical, systematic exposition of His Word. Because we want people to love and obey God, and become self-feeding followers of Jesus, we’ll mainly explore and apply His Word through expositional teaching, seasoned with real-life application, joy, and grace.
Be REAL and be relational. We believe fruitful growth in Christ-likeness happens best in living the Christian life together with God's diverse and multi-generational family, where we know and are known.
Our values drive our decisions. We seek to focus on three simple values:
- LOVE GOD COMPLETELY - We want to see everyone grow not only in faith but in deep adoration of God and His mission in this world.
- LOVE EACHOTHER AS FAMILY - Christ teaches that it is our love for each other that will set us apart as His disciples. We want to connect with and love each person at Paseo as our family.
- LOVE OUTSIDE OF OURSELVES SACRIFICIALLY - We want to love our neighbors, whoever and wherever they are in real and sacrifical ways.
Paseo del Rey Church began as a small group Bible study in a home. When we needed more space we moved to the Chula Vista Women’s Club. After about a dozen years there, we bought property and built new buildings on our present site. The worship center was built in 1987. The two story office and classroom building went up in 1992.
In the following video, recorded during our recent 40th anniversary celebration, Pastor Gary shares the history of Paseo del Rey Church:
