Psalm 25:9 He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.

In 1962, First Baptist Church, Southern Baptist Convention of Camarillo was born in the hearts of a few local residents who banded together for prayer and a home bible study. As time went by and the congregation grew, with the Lord's guidance they were led to our present location on 1601 Temple Avenue on 6 acres of residential Camarillo land. Our church has existed for 57 years. Dr. Dan Nelson has been our pastor for the last 36 years. We seek to share Christ with people and want others to understand God's Word as we explain it and stand for its truths.


Our Mission

We strive for the revolutionary fellowship of Christians in the church Jesus started in His ministry and empowered with His Spirit after the day of Pentecost. Our goal is to allow God to develop genuine Christian fellowship and care for others in our congregation, as opposed to just coming and only going through the motions of being in church.

We believe the areas of ministry you will find in our church cannot only be refreshing but also life-changing.

Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.
— Romans 10:17
