Welcome to Elevate Church, a vibrant and dynamic community of believers in Santa Clarita, California! We are a place where people from all walks of life come together to worship God, learn from His word, and build relationships with one another.
At Elevate Church, we believe that church is not just a building or a Sunday service, but rather a family of people who are united by a common faith and purpose. Our mission is to help people connect with God, grow in their relationship with Him, and serve others in His love.
Why We Exist
Elevate Church exists to help people connect with
God in a real way through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
OUR MISSION | OUR MISSION | OUR MISSION
Our Pastors, Mauricio and Virginia Ruiz, are gifted speakers and teachers who are passionate about helping people grow in their faith and understanding of God's word. Under their leadership, our church is a place where people can deepen their relationship with God, find healing and restoration, and be equipped to serve others in the world.
At Elevate Church, we believe that the gospel is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, and we are committed to sharing this good news with our community and beyond. We would love to have you join us as we seek to follow Jesus and make a difference in the world.

God's WordWe believe that the Bible is the Word of God. It is divinely inspired, infallible, and fully authoritative. It is the final source for how to live life and what to believe. ➡︎ 2 Timothy 2:16-17 ➡︎ 2 Peter 1:20-21 ➡︎ Psalm 119:105 ➡︎ Psalm 9:7-11
RepentanceWe believe that to receive forgiveness and to be "born again," we must repent, confess our sins to God, believe in Jesus as our Lord and Savior, and, in doing so, we receive eternal life. ➡︎ 2 Peter 3:9 ➡︎ 1 John 1:9 ➡︎ Romans 7:7
It dares you to see things differently.
Whatever it takes.
"We" is better than "me."
Jesus remains, but methods change.
