Our Mission: to inspire and guide people of all ages to make a difference in their community and on their campuses
by knowing God better and discovering His purpose for their lives.
Viewpoint Church originated out of a small group of people who met every Friday evening for fellowship and Bible Study. There was a sense that God was calling the group to pray about planting a church in Newport Beach. ROCKHARBOR Church confirmed our call in January of 2013 and we began to ask others to join us. A group of about 30 students and adults began to organize and meet regularly. By summer, we met on the beaches of Balboa Peninsula for PRE-LAUNCH SERVICES for several months and then at ROCKHARBOR offices for six months. ROCKHARBOR officially commissioned Viewpoint Church on March 30, 2014. Our first official service (or the birthday of Viewpoint Church) was April 20, 2014 (Easter Sunday) at Old City Hall on Balboa Peninsula.
We currently meet on Sundays at 10 am

BIBLE-BASED – Viewpoint is a church that will teach from the Bible and encourage all members to read through the Bible each year. We believe the Word of God is where we can learn and teach God’s viewpoint on all aspects of life. Hebrews 4:12
GOSPEL-CENTERED – Viewpoint believes that the Gospel is the message that will change culture. We are a church that is committed to regularly delivering the Good News in relevant and powerful ways. Mark 16:15
FAMILY-FRIENDLY – One of the ways Viewpoint can change culture in a community that is over-committed is to offer a Sunday morning family service that lasts 1 ¼ hours that is geared for and includes students 8th grade and older. I Timothy 5:8
SPORTS & ACTIVITY MINDED – Viewpoint enjoys and engages, as a church family, in the unlimited activities that our community offers; from the film festival, running clubs and through developing teams and hosting events that access the beach and its surroundings. Luke 2:52
RECOVERY-SENSITIVE – Viewpoint is sensitive to the many men, women and students in our community and church who can benefit from a safe place to sustain their recovery from drugs, alcohol, etc. All church activities, meetings, events, or gatherings will be alcohol-free. Our leaders will also be asked to abstain from alcohol use in public. Parents will be asked to consider having alcohol-free homes during the years their students are under-age. II Corinthians 6:3, Romans 14:13
PRAYER FOCUSED – Prayer is both a personal and corporate spiritual discipline that allows men, women and students to grow in their relationship with God. At Viewpoint, we value prayer and its power to change our lives and our community. I Thessalonians 5:16-18
MISSION & MINISTRY MINDED – We believe that we are all ministers. We are each called to use our gifts, both in our church (ministry) and in the world (missions). Our goal is to develop leaders of all ages to love God, themselves and others in order to change culture for the next generation in the City of Newport Beach and throughout the world. Acts 1:8, II Tim. 3:16-17
FUN – Joy is one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit. Laughter and fun should be a high value for all of us. Romans 15:13, Psalm 126:2, Ecclesiastes 3:4
