Greetings from the Presbytery of Santa Barbara

The Presbytery of Santa Barbara provides resources for the upbuilding of Christ's church in the counties of Ventura, San Luis Obispo, and Santa Barbara, and facilitates the sharing of our burdens and joys. Its members are the Pastors and other Ministers, and a proportionate representation of Elders from the Presbyterian (U.S.A.) churches within its bounds.

As the crucial link between these churches and the other governing bodies, the Presbytery elects representatives to the Synod and the General Assembly, thus affirming that the individual congregations constitute one church of Christ.

What we believe

The Mission of the Church is to make disciples of Christ.

Trusting in Godís gracious sovereignty in our changing world, each congregation is called to worship the Triune God, witness to the Gospel, express Godís love, justice and mercy, invite commitment to Jesus as Savior and Lord, nurture spiritual maturity, and prepare persons to participate in Godís continuing good work of redemption.



To this end, the Presbytery of Santa Barbara serves Christ and His Church by:

Supporting the churches of the Presbytery to be healthy and effective instruments in carrying out Christís Great Commission;

Equipping the ordained leaders of the Church to effectively carry out the responsibilities of servant leaders in obedience to Christ; and

Undertaking projects to accomplish our mission that are beyond the capacity of a local congregation.
