At Scripps Mesa Bible Church, our mission is ³to live by faith, to be known for love, and to be voices of hope.² Living by faith is tough in a world filled with international conflict, racial tension, skyrocketing gas prices, uncertain paychecks, and shaky relationships. At SMBC, we take God¹s word seriously. We work hard to teach others and remind ourselves daily that God is always faithful, that his plan is bigger than our circumstances.
We meet our goal to be known for love by caring for people from different life stages and cultures. We have activities for younger kids, specialized programs for junior and senior high, and small groups and topical classes for adults. We share our facility with African-American and Korean congregations, and hope to add a Vietnamese ministry. We send missions teams to work in poverty-stricken areas of Jamaica, and regularly interact with teams serving in Mexico, East Africa, Indonesia, and the Middle East.
Ultimately, our purpose is to lead people to a personal relationship with Jesus, the one who gives lasting, permanent hope. Our hope is that each person who encounters SMBC will have an authentic, personal, intimate experience of God¹s truth, grace and love.
