Our 40 Day Bible Reading Challenge is on!

Be so spiritually full that you'll never want to live on empty again!

Sanctuary Church is reading through our "Historical Books - Part 1" series in 40 days. This equates to about 3 chapters a day. Want to join us??!

Each Sunday, handouts are available for you to pick up which will have the chapters that you read each day, along with some space to write down a thought or two per chapter.

Bring your notes from the previous week and have a quick meeting after church with your fellow reading partners to share your reading experience during the week.

That’s it!

"Blessed is the man whose … delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers." – Psa 1:1-3


Thank you!

Thanks for visiting us on the web! Sanctuary Church is a new growing *non-denominational Christian church in Escondido, Ca, San Diego North County. 

Recently, a friend asked me, "Why did you decide to pastor a new church here in Escondido, Ca, San Diego North County?"

I thought that was a good question, because the why needs to come before the what. The answer to this question is found in our mission statement:


We exist to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus.

... which leads to FREEEEEEEDOM!


pThis video accurately portrays what Sanctuary Church is all about...



As Christians here in North County, that's the motivation behind everything we do, because we have learned that as we grow in our relationship with Jesus, we experience LIFE and that to the full (Jn 10:10)! Our desire is that you would also experience this life filled to overflowing with peace and joy, purpose and meaning. 

Come on out this Sunday to charming Escondido, Ca and experience it for yourself!


Pastor Paul and Danica Bartelme



* Non denominational - In Christianity, non denominational churches are those not formally aligned with an established Christian denomination, or that remain otherwise officially autonomous. This is the case for Sanctuary Church. This, however, does not preclude an identifiable standard among such Christian congregations who worship Jesus. Non denominational congregations may establish a functional denomination by means of mutual recognition of, or accountability to, other Christian congregations and leaders with commonly held doctrine, policy and worship without formalizing external direction or oversight in such matters. Non denominational churches are not uncommon in San Diego North County, and in Escondido / San Marcos as well.
