SADDLEBACK SERVICE TIMES - Sunday 8:30 and 10:00 AM San Clemente High School Campus..


God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. Genesis 1:1,26,27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14

Man is made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. He is the supreme object of Godīs creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good, he is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called "sin". This attitude separates man from God. Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1,2


Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence. John 3:16; John 2:25; John 5:11-13; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; 1 John 5:11-12; Matthew 25:31-46

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heavenīs glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of kings, and Lord of lords. Matthew 1:22,23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14,15; 1 Corinthians 15:3,4; Romans 1:3,4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14,15; Titus 2:13


Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as Godīs offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sinīs penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8,9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1

Because God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives this security. John 10:29; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25; 10:10,14; 1 Peter 1:3-5


The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily. 2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16,17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:1

The Bible is Godīs word to all men. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error. 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20,21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105,160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5)

Welcome to a most interesting perspective on life.

How May We Help You?

It is all about God's great love us and our great love for one another and our Creator. Learning how to love and what Love is by essence. You matter to God, and your life has more meaning than you can understand, and it is a preparation for eternity. There is no greater love than laying down ones life for a friend. So Christ, our friend laid down his life so you may have eternal life, healing, and share in the riches of God's Love as his Heirs. All you have to do is call upon the name of Jesus Christ and believe in Him.

Come Visit us and discover what this means at
Saddleback Church of San Clemente,
Sunday 8:30 to 10am at San Clement High School.

Everyone's life is driven by something, and most of these forces lead to the same dead end: unused potential, unnecessary stress, and an unfulfilled life. That's why there is nothing more important than knowing God's purposes for your life, and nothing can compensate for not knowing it: not success, wealth, fame, or pleasure. Without a purpose, life is motion without meaning, activity without direction, and events without reason.

The truth is we all need encouragement from others to make it in daily life. God designed us that way! That is why saddleback has over 2200 groups and growing for Couples, Singles, Men & Women, Married with Kids, and Business Professional located throughout Orange County and beyond. These Small Groups form the relationships that make the difference your daily encouragement and growth. Share ideas and understandings that make you a better you. These are the people who are "there" for you when the tough times hit.
To join a small group "Click Here".

Besides Saddlebakc small groups, there are a number of ways you can find immediate help. From the moment Rick Warren began Saddleback, he had a vision for it being a place where the hurting, depressed, frustrated and confused can find help. If you're hurting, we'd love to show you God's love by helping you in any way we can. God wants nothing more than to heal whatever has wounded your heart.

Saddleback has a free, appointment-based counseling service, where you can meet weekly with well-trained paraprofessional counselors who can help you through some of life's difficult days. Whether your struggle is personal, marital or financial, we have trained counselors to help you.
