Solid Ground Church is located at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains in Rancho
Cucamonga, CA. This congregation began in this community when it was full of citrus groves and vineyards. Today, Rancho Cucamonga is a developed city of 180,000 people.
Solid Ground Ministries consists of 3 branches of ministry; the church congregation, Alta Loma School, a preschool-8th grade Christian school, and Hidden Oaks our wedding and event venue. Together these three ministries provide the vehicles to encourage, teach, bless and partner with families and individuals in our region to see the presence and power of God activated in our community.
We believe God has called us to partner with him to make the “Good News” of Jesus known to our city. It is our desire that the communities around Solid Ground church would have continuous and regular opportunity to hear the hope of the gospel. We take seriously the call to be good neighbors and friends to all those we meet. We believe God is at work in our city and it is our desire to partner with him and be available for his use.
