About New Creation Church of San Diego

New Creation Church of San Diego (NCC) was founded on August 4, 1972, by 13 spiritually led men and women who set out to form one of the first multicultural churches in San Diego. They all shared a love for God’s edification in the body of Christ. These individuals established a vision and sacrificed their time, money, and resources to reach specific needs of the community. Through the early years New Creation Church of San Diego worshipped in various homes and buildings until we bought our first church. God blessed us to purchase our present location 3115 Altadena Avenue, San Diego. This is how New Creation Church became a profound and prolific church in San Diego. New Creation Church of San Diego is a non-denominational church family that values biblical preaching, teaching and heartfelt worship. Our Slogan “A great commitment to the great commandment and the great commission will grow a great church!” Our Mission Statement reflects our goal to attract and win members, develop them to CHRIST LIKE MATURITY, and empower them for a meaningful MINISTRY in the Church and a life MISSION in the world, in order to MAGNIFY GOD.
