Pastor Kyle McKee gave his life to Jesus Christ in 2009 while serving as a Marine on Camp Pendleton, CA. Before his encounter with Jesus, a Marine lifestyle of reckless drinking and hatred pushed him further from his shallow belief in Christ. Abusing his wife and neglecting his family, his sin was killing him, and his family. On June 20th, 2009 he served his wife divorce papers. That same night a man from the Potter's House Christian Fellowship Church in Oceanside, CA came to see how he had been doing. That night at his home on the military base he heard the scripture preached, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new." 2 Corinthians 5:17. He realized that if he really had Jesus Christ then he would have been a changed person; but his life up to that point had been filling full of hatred, bitterness, and resentment toward others. He had never been born again. That night he repented of his sin with the man from the church and committed his life to Christ in prayer. His wife and five kids, 10 years later, serve God with him, a brand new man. Ordained in 2015, he accepted the call to pioneer and pastor a church in San Marcos, CA summer of 2015. Pastor McKee is happily married to his wife and together they are raising their five children.

Evangelism: The Gospel taken outside the four walls is the absolute foundation of our church, in obedience to Mark 16:15 And He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature'… We emphasize personal evangelism, and a large variety of outreaches to share the Gospel.
Conversion: We witness, testify and preach for a decision. The Gospel has the power to save and transform lives. 1 Peter 1:23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever… The bulk of our congregation consists of people converted here by the Power of God.
The Local Church: God has placed everything necessary to accomplish His will in the setting of the local church. Ephesians 1:22-23 …the church. Which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills everything in every way. God’s will is accomplished in us and through us as we connect and commit ourselves to a local church.
Discipleship: God intends for calling to Him, and for Him, to be accomplished through being trained and equipped within the setting of a local church. Therefore, the highest calling of a Pastor and congregation is to obey God’s command in Matthew 28:19-20 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.
Church Planting: The result of disciples being raised up is that they be released into the harvest field. Matthew 9:37-38 Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest." We send couples to plant brand new congregations, with the aim of reproducing our vision in a new area.
World Evangelism: From the earliest Bible record, God’s vision is worldwide testimony and impact. The gospel message and the vision God has revealed to us is not simply American, but God-inspired; so therefore it works, and is relevant in every nation and culture of the world. Mark 16:15 all the world/every person…Matthew 28:19 all the nations… Our job as believers, and as the local church is to pray, train, invest, send and support workers to go into all the world!
