Our Story—

The story of Fullerton Free begins with the bigger story God has been writing since the beginning of time. As God relentlessly pursued the people He created, His name became known generation after generation. God’s faithful followers proclaimed the good news of salvation in His son Jesus – the story for all time.

And so, our church was born. Inspired by the Holy Spirit, a small group of 20-somethings moved to Fullerton to see how God might use them to further His kingdom. With faith, they sacrificed their resources to start a church where God would be glorified and His good news would be spread.

As the years rolled on, the First Evangelical Free Church of Fullerton became a beacon of light in North Orange County. Over time, thousands would gather on the corner of Brea & Bastanchury to meet Jesus. God’s word would be proclaimed. Broken hearts would be comforted. Songs of praise would resonate. Ambassadors of the gospel would be sent worldwide. Souls would be transformed – all as God’s people continued to respond to His love for them.


Today we continue this great legacy of those who have gone before us. Our foundations remain, as they always have. And still, as times change, we continue to creatively explore how God would use us now to impact the world around us. We rely on the power of the Holy Spirit to be a loving community, united in sacrifice and living like Christ for the glory of God.


As we follow the through-line of God’s purposes from the days of the past to the vibrancy of our present community and on into the future of our church, we are thrilled to see that God isn’t finished writing our story. We anticipate all the exciting chapters yet to be written as Christ is revealed to us, in us, and by us in the days ahead.
