About Christ Community Church of Milpitas Church

Presbyterian 251-500 people

We are disciple-makers reaching out the community for Christ.


Each part of the Bay Area seems to have its own localized flavor. Perhaps more than any other feature, what makes the Milpitas area special is its incredible diversity. It's literally composed of people from all over the world. And so is Christ Community Church.


The book of Revelation tells us that one day God will assemble His people from "every tribe and language and people and nation" (Rev 5:9). We like to think that our church is a small reflection of that beautiful tapestry that God will one day weave from all nations. We see our unified diversity as a church both as a blessing and a calling.


Together we offer living testimony to how very different people can love one another. And together we more effectively proclaim the love of God to a very diverse area. For over 50 years Christ Community Church has been strongly committed to Jesus Christ, the Holy Scriptures, and Jesus' mission to proclaim God's love to all people. That's who we are.
