El Vista identifies as an independent, fundamental, Baptist church. We believe in the autonomy of local churches under Christ, the fundamental doctrines of the "faith once delivered," and in the Baptist distinctives, such as the eternal security and priesthood of the believer.

The Sound of Singing
The choir is working with the Lancaster family for a special summer cantata for August 23, a Friday night. Brother Lancaster has been working hard with the choir to learn this music. Plan to join us for a special evening of worship and praise to the Lord.

We thank the Lord for the long ministry of Phil & Randi Lancaster at El Vista Baptist Church. He joined the staff with Pastor Jack Thompson August 8, 1982.

El Vista Baptist Academy will begin classes on August 20. Only a few openings remain! Would you help us by telling your friends about our Christian school? We offer grades K-4 through 8. It is important to file your registration papers now to indicate your interest in enrolling your students or re-enrolling current students and for us to get materials ordered for the beginning of the semester.
