Southern Baptist Convention

The First Baptist Church of Pacific Beach was one of the founding members of the California Southern Baptist Convention in 1943. It serves the growing family-oriented populations of Pacific Beach and Clairemont in San Diego. The church has hosted the Bethany Korean Baptist Church for over 10 years. The self-supporting church is pastored by the Rev. Joshua Park. The church is currently assisting with a church plant, King's Cross Church, which is being lead by the Rev. Obed Brefo and his wife, Elena. The church's YouTube channel has all the Sunday services uploaded in 4K and is available for viewing at any time.
