The History of Christ Reformed
The History of Christ Reformed Baptist Church
Originally named Escondido Reformed Baptist Church, our church was officially constituted in May, 2001. We recognize the definition of a true church as defined by the standards of the Second London Baptist Confession of Faith of 1689. A true church: (1) regularly and rightly ministers the Word of God for the salvation of all peoples called unto Christ and the obedience thereof, (2) regularly and rightfully practices and submits to the God-ordained ordinances of baptism and the Lord's Supper, and (3) regularly and rightfully carries on all orders in worship and church discipline.
In September of 2001 ERBC joined in fellowship with the Southern California Association of Reformed Baptist Churches (SCARBC), and in March of 2002 with the Association of Reformed Baptist Churches of America (ARBCA).
In December, 2010, after plans to move from Escondido to Vista were in place, our congregation voted to change the name of the church to Christ Reformed Baptist Church. With this change in name came our move to Vista, CA, in January, 2011.
