Jim Jackson

Lead Pastor

The Orchard is people. The church is people; people just like you. We are people that God has done a heart renovation with and has taken us from ‘religion about God’ to ‘relationship with God’. That distinction has made all the difference. We are excited. Excited to serve God and our community and share what a great God we serve. We are servants. Servants of Jesus that desire to live authentic lives with our hands outstretched to our hurting world.

The Orchard is a miracle. Truly. The way we started is miraculous. The way we have grown is miraculous. The way we have seen God transform lives, save marriages, acquire jobs and heal people’s hearts and minds is miraculous. The way God has brought together the amazingly talented and gifted people that serve at the Orchard and our community is miraculous.

“We look forward to seeing you, and invite you to come and be a part of what God is doing at the Orchard.”
–Pastor Jim

Who We Are

Our purpose is to “Grow Deep” by fulfilling the Great Commandment of loving the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, and mind (Matthew 22:37-40). And to “Branch Out” by fulfilling the Great Commission by making fully devoted disciples (Matthew 28:18-20).


God has called the Orchard to love and reach those locally who do not regularly attend any church, those regionally who may visit when able and those globally who will visit us through the internet. In order to accomplish this, the Orchard will be an equipping center focused on helping every Christian develop to his or her full potential for their ministry in the Kingdom of God.

Why We Exist



Want to know why we exist? We believe God loves the people of our community and has placed the Orchard here to bless it. The mission we feel called from God to accomplish is expressed in three ways we call ‘e3’.

Engage with love. Equip with truth. Empower with faith.




What We Believe

  • We Believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons, commonly known as the ‘trinity’ or tri-unity of God–the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. They are all equal in power and glory and that this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all.
  • We Believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired, without error in the original manuscripts, and the only infallible rule of faith and practice given to humanity by God.
  • We Believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal Being, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
  • We Believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit though the virgin Mary. He became man without giving up his divinity to provide the ultimate and only sacrifice for sinful humanity who are incapable of saving themselves from God’s judgment on their sin.
  • We Believe in the Holy Spirit, who came forth from the Father and the Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and regenerate, sanctify, and empower for ministry all who believe in Jesus Christ.
  • We Believe that all of humanity are sinners by nature and choice and are therefore under condemnation; that God regenerates by the Holy Spirit those who repent of their sins by accepting the sacrifice of Jesus’ death on the cross and confess Jesus as Lord.
  • We Believe in the personal, visible return of Christ to the earth and the establishment of His Kingdom; in the physical resurrection of the body; the final judgment of humanity; and the eternal blessing of the righteous saved by grace in heaven as well as the endless suffering of those who reject the grace of God in hell. Heaven and hell are real places of eternal, conscious existence where every human will reside.

Get Connected

We  intend to multiply our worldwide ministry by raising up new leaders in the Temecula and Murrieta Valley.
We will serve as a resource center and an encouraging model for churches in California and the nation.
