Whether this is your first time visiting our website, or you have been coming to Coastline for a while, we believe every individual has a unique step to take as they grow in their walk with Jesus. We believe that walk is even further developed in growing relationships with others. Check out our next steps below! Click on one for more information.
In order to find the way to eternal life with God, I must admit I am lost in sin. Romans 5:12 teaches us that since Adam and Eve, the first man and woman on earth, a sin nature has been present in all people. Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Sin is any act contrary to God’s laws and commandments, and those sins that I have committed separate me from God. Whenever I have been lost, I have paid some type of penalty. I have been late to a special event and, on occasion, I have received a speeding ticket. Sin also has a penalty. Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” The “wage” or payment for our sin is spiritual death, and eternal separation from God.
Religions try to create their own ways to God. Their systems may seem logical, but they cannot bridge the gap created by our sin. Proverbs 14:12 says, “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” In other words, our thoughts and ways are not what matter. God’s Word, the Bible, provides true answers of grace and forgiveness. In Ephesians 2:8–9 the Bible says, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
Even though we were lost and separated from God, He loved us, and because He is love, God sent His Son to die on the Cross and raise from the dead three days later. John 3:16 explains “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Through the death and resurrection of Jesus, He became the payment for our sin. Now, we do not have to pay for our sin ourselves. By His grace, salvation is provided. In Romans 5:8, the Bible says, “But God commendeth [meaning proved or demonstrated] his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
In order to have a relationship with God and an eternal home in Heaven, we must stop trusting ourselves, our works, and our religions, and place our full trust in Jesus Christ alone for the forgiveness of our sin and eternal life. In Roman 10:13 the Bible says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” That is a promise directly from God that if you will pray to Him, confess that you are a sinner, ask Him to forgive your sins, and turn to Him alone to be your Saviour; He promises to save you and give you the free gift of eternal life. You can make that decision today by praying from your heart, something like this:
Dear God, I know that I am separated from you because of sin. I confess that in my sin, I cannot save myself. Right now, I turn to you alone to be my Saviour. I ask you to save me from the penalty of my sin, and I trust you to provide eternal life to me.
You'll never regret that decision! If you have just trusted Christ, we would love to know about your decision and give you a Bible and some other materials to help you learn more about that new relationship! Give us a call at 760-754-2302 and let us know today!
Water Baptism is an outward expression of an inward decision to follow Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord of your life. Not only does the Bible command us to be baptized but Jesus himself was water baptized by immersion. It is the first step of obedience after meeting Jesus personally!
"Then they that gladly received -- his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls."- Acts 2:41
"And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water:" - Matthew 3:16
Coastline is a church community...a family where people can be less than perfect. It's a place where individuals can find healing, encouragement and fulfillment. The church is a catalyst for people not only to fulfill the commission of Christ but a chance to make some great friends while doing it. If you are new to Coastline or would just like to get connected we encourage you to try attending an adult Connection Group. We also offer a small gathering called Starting Point which is a great way to meet our Pastor and catch some of the vision we believe God has given us as a church.
If you are intereted in taking the next step of becoming a member at Coastline, take a quick moment to answer these questions and one of our pastoral staff will reach out to you quickly.

Getting the word out about Jesus is a huge part of what we are called to do as a church. Whether its though community service...neighborhood outreach or a missions trip, if you love sharing your faith or are interested in beginning to do so, this is a great place to stat for all Christians.
God is the supreme example of generosity towards mankind through His son, Jesus Christ. Generosity, whether it’s through finances, service or time is most valuable when it’s put to work helping people. As individuals and as the church, it is our privilege to give generously to people in need. We are able to accomplish this through our world-wide missions giving as well as local projects of which Coastline is involved. We believe that a generous church is blessed in a generous way by God.
Coastline makes it easy to give in a financial way.
