About Us


Welcome from Pastor Jim Swaney

Who We Are

Sebastopol Christian Church is a community of people who desire to know and follow Jesus Christ. We are a multi-generational church with people from all ages and backgrounds. Founded in 1966, we are a church near downtown Sebastopol that exists to serve Sonoma County and the world. Here are some of our other features:

  • We Believe: The Bible is our highest authority for our faith and practice
  • We are nondenominational, autonomous and self-governing (by a Board of Elders)
  • We are not legalistic
  • We believe that God calls every Christ follower to serve, and they should serve in areas in which God has gifted them
  • We actively serve the homeless in our community each week
  • We give a good portion of our offerings to missionaries, locally and globally
  • We strive to be a church that is a loving, caring family
  • We want to make the name of Jesus honored and famous in our community
  • We believe that one of the best ways to demonstrate our love for God, is to practice loving our neighbors as ourselves

Our Vision Statement

Sebastopol Christian Church exists to build a family of hope-filled followers of Jesus who bring others into a growing relationship with our Creator.
