Goleta Presbyterian Church is a warm and welcoming Christian church characterized by an open-minded embracing of questions about faith and tradition, acceptance of human diversity, a strong emphasis on social justice and care for the poor and the oppressed, and environmental stewardship of the earth.
One of the most-cited, most highly valued characteristics of the GPC congregation is the warmth and sense of welcoming hospitality that members share with one another and toward visitors. The authenticity of community is often cited by congregants who appreciate the support they have experienced from others during times of psychological, physical, and emotional challenges, such as illness, hospitalization, and bereavement, and also during times of joy and celebration, such as baptisms and weddings.
GPC has long prided itself on being a mission-oriented church with many active missions within the church, the local community, and the world.
A former visiting pastor declared us “the kindest church in Santa Barbara County.” Come see!
