The evidence for the Christian worldview is incredibly compelling. Check it out. 

  • God is real.

    Welcome to Prospect Avenue Baptist Church, Santee. Let's begin at the beginning, shall we?

    A real, living, all-wise, all-powerful, personal God exists – and YOU are the greatest evidence of His existence! Our vast universe with its hundreds of billions of galaxies each filled with hundreds of billions of stars is fine-tuned to a razor’s edge. That fine-tuning extends especially to our solar system and to our beloved home, Earth. And while our world abounds with every form of life, YOU, dear human are the pinnacle of God’s creative genius and care. All of life operates according to the plan of a Super-Genius who inscribed His program in the ultra-miniaturized DNA molecule. Yet only humans are blessed with the ability to appreciate the wonder of it all and to contemplate our place in it! We are truly created in the image of God.

    "The heavens declare the glory of God; the sky displays His handiwork." Psalm 19:1

  • the Bible is true. 

    The Bible is God’s communication to the human race – inspired, inerrant, preserved, and trustworthy. There is more manuscript evidence for the New Testament alone than for all other ancient works of literature combined. The Bible remains the number one best-selling book of all time, and yet, for all that, it is also the most neglected of books. In most homes, “it’s around here somewhere,” - like those old photo albums with the yellowing pages. While our culture languishes in the confusion of post-modernism and moral relativism, Prospect Avenue Baptist Church still clearly proclaims the life-changing power of the absolute truth of God’s Holy Word.

  • We Are fallen.

    Something is wrong with our world. It’s called sin. The first humans defied their Creator and suffered the consequences, and we inherent their stubborn, selfish, sinful nature. “There is none righteous, no not one…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:10 and 23). We pursue that which is forbidden, we indulge our lusts, and we neglect and defy God’s laws. We suffer for the nasty things we do to one another, and under the curse which God pronounced on our world as punishment for our rebellion. 


God has made a way for us to be redeemed from our fallenness! This good news is called the Gospel. It's the most important message you'll ever hear. 

  • the bad news - judgment is coming.

    Biblical wrath is understood as God’s angry, justified justice against sinners. This Wrath is described in two ways. 1) All sinners are condemned to hell upon death. 2) God is planning to bring a series of awful judgments to this world – a sort of hell-on-earth scenario called the Great Tribulation. In His grace and mercy, God has provided a rescue plan, a way to escape the wrath to come and guarantee a place in heaven. This salvation is not based on any good thing we have done, but solely on Christ’s payment for our sins when He gave His life for us on the Cross. 

    “For we ourselves were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful and hating one another. But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared, not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior, that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life” (Titus 3:3-7).

  • The Good news - Jesus took our penalty.

    Jesus Christ bore God's wrath for us when He died in our place on the cross. “God demonstrates His own love toward us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all” (Isaiah 53:6). The Creator-God Himself set aside His glory, became a human, lived a perfect life, and performed miracles – gave sight to the blind, caused the lame to walk, raised the dead to life again. Then He gave His own life as payment for our sins. The Father raised Jesus from the dead on the third day, proving that Christ truly is the Savior of the world, and that His offer of salvation is real! “Whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13).

  • God offers new life!

    Through faith in Christ, God provides not only forgiveness for our sinful past, and the promise of eternal life, but also power to live a new life in the present – complete with new desires and new purpose. “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:8-10). “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation” (2 Corinthians 5:17-18).

  • So, believe!

    “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:16-18). He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him” (John 3:36).

    “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved” (Acts 16:31).
