San Diego Central Seventh-day Adventist Church

Poway | CA


The San Diego Central Seventh-day Adventist Church is called to embrace our diverse community, meet true needs in genuine Christian love, and draw everyone into a vibrant, transforming relationship with God in preparation for the return of Jesus Christ.

Welcome to the San Diego Central Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Our church is growing! It is vibrant! We are excited to be together! We are passionate about our love for Jesus, because we accept Christ's sacrifice on the cross. 

Our vision is that we are to be a foretaste of Heaven! Because of that, our church family is a blend of many cultures and languages, inlcuding Caucasian, Korean, Filipino, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, African American, Pacific Islander, South American, Indian, Romanian, Western European, Eastern European, and more. 

We have come together as a result of a merger between four pervious church groups. Although each of those previous groups had a long history in San Diego, we officially formed our new church family on November 5, 2011, taking on the new name of San Diego Central Seventh-day Adventist Church. We call ourselves "San Diego Central" because we are located centrally in San Diego County. 

Come see what Jesus is doing in our church family because of what He is doing in our individual lives. 

Hope to see you soon!

A warm, friendly greeting is awaiting you!

A Life to Die For
SPEAKER: Pastor Clarence Schilt
We all are "living" our lives, but are we just surviving
 or are we living a life to die for? 
"To die for" is an idiom or figure of speech that describes something so desirable and attractive that it is worth dying for.
 On Renewal Sabbath, Pastor Clarence Schilt will lead us through a series of presentations that will give us new ways to look at our relationship with Jesus, our life, and our relationships that will result in a life "to die for".
