Our Story


In 2015, Pastor Israel along with his wife and children, set out to start a church from scratch in North Orange County. They had informational meetings in their back yard and by October they were gathering people weekly for prayer and dreaming of reaching people for Christ in Fullerton. December was the preview service and March 20th, 2016 was a public launch of Branches Church OC in La Habra, a neighboring city to Fullerton.


In 2016, Temple Baptist Church of Fullerton was in need of a senior pastor. At the same time Branches, like most plants, would eventually need a permanent place. As sister churches, they received support from a network known as Pacific Church Network (PCN), of which they were both apart. PCN helped arrange the coming together of the two churches for the furthering of the gospel. We are grateful for Temple's history, their love for the Bible, their love for the name of Jesus, and their love for the mission of God. We who are part of this local church are all benefactors of those who planted Temple all those years ago, establishing it as a local body in 1953.  It is our desire to continue preaching the gospel of Jesus here in the city.


In January 8th of 2017 Temple Baptist Church of Fullerton and Branches Church OC came together to become Branches Fullerton. Since then, we have continued to cultivate a culture of accomplishing the mission of making disciples of Christ Jesus both locally in the city and abroad. We also connect,  partner,  and labor with other planting churches.

We want Fullerton to follow Jesus

Whether you're new to the Christian faith, new to the city, or just considering joining a family of Christians, please let us know. 

We are a church plant eager to bring God glory by knowing Him, growing in faith, and making disciples.
