About Vista Grande Church
Jesus Christ as explained in the Bible is what we are about. We exist to know Him and make Him known.
Rest assured, on the outside we look fairly normal – we are retirees, school teachers, engineers, stay at home moms. But something has changed within us.
As much as we enjoy this life, we really believe that even if a person has:
the most rewarding friendships
can experience every created beauty
and enjoy these things forever --
if they don't have Jesus Christ, it would not be heaven.
The reason we think this way is because we have come to understand Jesus is God, and He, through His death, burial and resurrection brings ungodly people to God. And it is God alone who defines and is the source of all that is good (I Peter 3:18; James 1:17; Psalm 36:8).
The Word of God tells us that Jesus is God and that He was put to death on a cross as a substitute in our place, because we have all sinned (Romans 3:23). Through faith in Jesus, something has happened inside us. In our hearts and minds we now see and know that the eternal God of the universe is the most precious and most necessary person. To know Him and follow Him is the best life a person can have (II Corinthians 4:4-6; John 17:3; Psalm 16:11).
In the Bible, Jesus says that to know Him is like having a spring of clear, pure water within you. It’s always satisfying our thirst and it’s always flowing out and over its banks.
There’s something about knowing Him who is eternal that creates a desire to let others know the treasure we have found. That’s what we mean when we say we exist to know Jesus Christ and make Him known. We are committed to obey His command to make disciples of all the nations, so that Jesus will be glorified in all the earth (Isaiah 11:9, Romans 10:8-11).

What We Believe
We affirm the Holy Bible as the inspired Word of God and as the only basis for our beliefs. This Church accepts The Baptist Faith and Message, a 1963 affirmation of basic Christian beliefs as amended by the Southern Baptist Convention of 2000, as the general statement of our faith.
