Established in October of 1973, Pioneer Baptist Church has served Citrus Heights and surrounding communities as a gospel lighthouse for over 40 years. In a world of uncertainty, turmoil and change, there must be a place where the eternal truths of God’s Word can be heard and understood. At PBC, you’ll find friendly faces, stirring worship, and powerful preaching.  Our prayer is that you’ll walk away uplifted, challenged- and different.

Here, church means life- life lived in harmony with God’s Plan and God’s People.  We’re not called to sameness but we are called to oneness and here, church means people. Church means united purposes, shared joys and  common burdens.   We’re striving to be exactly what Jesus designed us to be- a body.

Because the God is timeless His character never changes, His truth is always relevant. We do not believe that our mission is  to be in step with culture, rather we believe that our mission is to call people to be in step with God.This belief permeates our theology, ministry philosophy and practice.  Here, we proclaim a “never changing truth to an ever-changing world.” 

At Pioneer, our 4-Fold mission for each believer is very simple- GATHER, GROW, GIVE, GO. We GATHER together for worship, we GROW together in small-group settings, we GIVE to the Lord and each other in terms of time, talent, and treasure, and then we GO out to a lost and dying world with the message of repentance and redemption in Jesus Christ.

Come for a visit. Stay for a lifetime.
