The Current Series



We are a community of believers in San Diego reaching out to our city with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, reaching up to join Jesus with His message of redemption and reaching in to the world with His message of hope.




We are a community of believers in San Diego reaching out to our city with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Although geographically located in the Penasquitos area, we believe that we are commissioned to reach out to our city of San Diego.  While it is true that there are many churches in the area, CMC is unique and attracts a distinctive demographic.  We are sincere with our love for people and this community and city, and now we are reaching out to You.
Carmel Mountain Church is reaching up to join Jesus with His message of hope and salvation. At CMC we are striving to learn more about God’s salvation plan through praise, worship and the Word. Reaching the lost by sharing God’s agape love for everyone is our goal while equipping leaders to go back into the world to tell others about Jesus. With our arms open wide we are reaching up to join God in His plan for our lives.
After we have reached out to our city CMC is reaching back into the world with the Gospel message of hope and salvation. Following Jesus commandment to “go” we are empowering people then sending them into our community, city and world. With a genuine passion for Christ Carmel Mountain Church is reaching into meet the needs of real people with God’s message of hope.
As our community comes together in the wake of the terrible violent attack on Chabad Synagogue, we recognize that each act of terror is meant to harm the wonderful plurality we richly value. We believe that every human being bears the image of our Creator and is deserving of dignity, safety, and freedom from fear. Because of that truth we stand in solidarity with our neighbors against any act of violence motivated by difference real or perceived. We are committed to teaching and encouraging our churches to value and respect every neighbor, bringing peace to our community.
