Who We Are

Who We Are First Block

Over 50 Years

For over 50 years CPC has strived to make and mature more followers of Christ. Central Peninsula Church began in 1967 with a few families from Peninsula Bible Church in Palo Alto who had a vision to plant a church farther up the Peninsula. Their mission then and our mission now is to make and mature followers of Jesus Christ. Whether you don’t have a faith background, are new to the faith, or you have been a long-time follower of Jesus, we hope you will find your time with us engaging, edifying and encouraging.

Find out more about who we are as a church through our Core Values, Statement of Faith, White and Information Papers.
