Welcome to St. Augustine by-the-Sea

We are a loving, open and socially-engaged community focused on celebration, support and connection with each other and with God. While we have been known as a church on the forefront of social change, our faith is grounded in practicing Jesus’ teachings to love one another as he loves us, and in challenging each other to follow Christ.

We believe that everyone is loved by God, no exceptions.
