We like to say that El Montecito is "Big Enough to Meet Your Needs, but Small Enough to Know Them." We invite you to call or visit us to be able to answer your questions personally.
We are a congregation that seeks to glorify God the Father, Maker of Heaven and Earth, to affirm the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, God's only divine Son, our Lord, and to acknowledge the power and presence of the Holy Spirit. In the context of the Presbyterian Church USA, and our historical reformed theological tradition, we are committed by our Biblical mandate to:
- Worship, honor, and glorify God in all we do.
- Minister to the Church body with the love and compassion God's Spirit provides.
- Bring the joy, hope, and truth of Jesus Christ to others who hunger for love, acceptance, healing, and forgiveness; here in our own community... and around the world, as we are led by God.
- The internet is a welcome addition to the communication tools that have traditionally been available, but it is NOT a substitute for personal interaction. And "personal" is exactly how we hope you will find us to be.
