Paso Robles Community Church is a thriving multicultural, multigenerational community practicing the art of loving God and loving others. 



We encourage one another to live like authentic followers of Jesus by: 

Applying Biblical truth in all matters of faith and life. 

– Putting thought, heart and word to action to live as transformed believers.

– Encouraging healthy change and ongoing spiritual growth. 


We accept God’s call to selfless service by:  

Participating in church activities and ministry efforts. 

Contributing time, talent and treasure with a desire to see God’s church thrive. 

– Welcoming people well to a friendly community. 


We embrace God’s call to be a loving community that supports a progressive relationship with Jesus and genuine relationships with others by:

Engaging the community through meaningful relationships that share our hope.

– Introducing people to the love of God.

– Cultivating loving and sincere friendships with one another. 


We believe the Bible is the inspired and absolute Word of God. The Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, is His perfect Word and is the authority for all faith and life. (Psa. 119:105, 160; Prov. 30:5; Matt. 5:18; John 17:17; 2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:20-21) 

We believe there is one true and living God who exists eternally as three co-equal persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Gen. 1:26; Deut. 6:4-5; Psa. 90:2; Matt. 28:19-20; John 1:14; 2 Cor. 13:14; Col. 1:15-20; Heb. 1:1-3; 1 Pet. 1:2) 

We believe that God the Father is the creator and sustainer of all things, deserving of human worship and obedience. He is personal, infinite and perfect.  (Gen. 1:31, 22:17-18; Psa. 115:3; 121:1-2; Dan. 4:34-35; Luke 11:28; Rom. 9:14-16, 12:1-2) 

We believe that Jesus Christ became man without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin. His purpose was to reveal God and redeem sinful man. We believe that Jesus accomplished our redemption through His sinless life and death on the cross. We believe that our redemption is made sure by His literal, bodily resurrection from the dead. We gratefully acknowledge that He is our Savior, the one perfect mediator between God and man. (Isa. 9:6; Matt. 1:22-23; John 1:1-5, 3:16-18, 6:35-40, 10:27-30, 14:10-13; Rom. 8:32-39; 1 Pet. 1:3-9; 1 John 5:11-12) 

Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells those who believe, empowering them for Christ-like living and service. He is at work for God’s glory in our convictions, regeneration and sanctification. (John 14:15-21, 26; 15:26-27, 16:7-15; Acts 1:8; 1 Cor. 2:12, 3:16; 2 Cor. 3:17; Gal. 5:25; Eph. 1:13-14, 5:18; Col. 3:16) 

We believe that man, both male and female, were created in the image and likeness of God. However, the human race in rebellion fell into sin. This resulted in man’s separation from God. Man has been given the opportunity to be restored to a loving relationship with God through the work of Jesus Christ and the ministry of the Holy Spirit.(Gen. 1:26-28, 2:21-23, 3:1-24; John 3:16-18, 10:27-30; Rom. 3:22-26, 5:12, 8:38-39; 2 Tim. 2:11-13) 

We believe that anyone who accepts Jesus Christ alone as their Lord and Savior will have their sins forgiven and receive eternal life. This is possible because of God’s gracious love for man, which prompted Him to send Jesus to die for the sins of the world. Salvation is a free gift of God and cannot be obtained through any human effort. While good works do nothing to obtain salvation, they are an evidence of it. (John 1:12-13, 3:16-18; Rom. 8:38-39; Eph. 2:4-10; Col. 1:21-23; 2 Cor. 5:17-21; 1 John 1:9) 

The Church
We believe that Jesus Christ is the head of the universal church and all those who have experienced salvation through Jesus Christ are adopted into his family, the church. The local church is a gathering of believers, unified and diverse, who work together to encourage one another, worship and serve together. The church is charged with introducing the world to Jesus and encouraging a developing relationship with Him. (Matt. 5:13-16, 28:19-20; John 13:35; 1 Cor. 12:12-27; Eph. 2:19-22; Col. 1:18, 24; 1 Thess. 4:1-9, 18) 

We believe that Jesus directed believers to practice the ordinances of baptism and communion. Water baptism is an outward sign of what the Holy Spirit has performed in the heart of the believer. Communion, also known as The Lord’s Supper, is observed as a memorial of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice in securing our redemption and a hopeful expectation of His return.(Matt. 26:26-29, 28:19-20; Acts 10:47-48; 1 Cor. 11:23-34) 

We believe in the bodily resurrection of all people, believers to the state of eternal life and those who do not believe to the state of eternal punishment.(Matt. 24:30-25:46; Rom. 8:18-25; 2 Cor. 5:6-10, 11 Thess. 4:14-17) 

Marriage & Family
We believe God-honoring marriage is a lifelong covenant of the physical and spiritual union of one man and one woman. We believe that family is a gift of God that ought to reflect His glory through love and submission to God and to one another. (Matt. 19:3-6; Mark 10:6-9; Eph. 5:21-33, 6:1-4; Col. 3:18-21; Titus 2:1-8) 


After sensing a call to pursue ministry in a new way, Greg Ellis, with his wife Cindy, started Paso Robles Community Church in 1989. With a heart to make “the Church” more accessible to younger generations. With this mission in mind, the first gathering of 16 people was held at Marv’s Pizza Parlor on 12th Street. Within a year the congregation had grown to over 30 families and started meeting at Paso Robles High School, where we would gather for the next 7 years.  When attendance had increased to over 200 people, the search for a building of our own commenced. In 1996, a decision was made to buy and remodel the former Round Table Pizza building at 2706 Spring Street–our current home. After 20 years of dedicated service, Pastor Greg passed away in 2009 from ALS. His wife Cindy continues to attend PRCC.

Jim Poorboy came to guide the church through transition and help identify a new, permanent pastor. Pastor Shawn Penn began shepherding PRCC in 2010. He and his wife Cindy served at the church and in the community faithfully, leading with the vision to “Love God, Make Friends and Change the World.” Pastor Shawn provided great teaching, a servant’s heart and led a strong and successful effort to increase the church’s reach in the community. After 12 years of service, God provided Pastor Shawn a time of rest and guided him to a new ministry opportunity.

In 2022, we welcomed Daniel Baxter as the new pastor of Paso Robles Community Church. Pastor Daniel, with his wife, Tegan, and their two boys jumped in to build relationships, serve alongside the congregation, and help guide this next, exciting season of ministry at PRCC. Pastor Daniel has encouraged PRCC to become a thriving multicultural, multigenerational church who pursues the art of loving God and loving others well.

Together we aim encourage one another to be authentic Christ-followers; embracing ongoing spiritual development and putting heart, thought and word to action as we live out our faith. Together we serve our community; displaying the love, hope and transformation we have in Jesus Christ. Together we will cultivate great relationships; fostering connections with God, with one another, and with those who still need to know Jesus.
