Our Pastor

A Special Welcome

Greetings from my lovely wife, Linda, and myself as together with our four children planted Stockton Baptist Church over twenty-nine years ago.


It has been and continues to be our privilege to minister to so many people who have trusted the Lord as their Saviour and have a growing desire to become more like Jesus Christ. Our greatest privilege is to minister to the lost of our communities and neighborhoods by spreading the Gospel of the Good News of Jesus Christ. If you are looking for a Church that loves and cares for people, Stockton Baptist Church is the Church for you.


We have many ministries for all ages from newborn babies and their parents to seniors in retirement. Every individual matters to God and to us.


Our Church is strategically located right next to Highway 99 and Hammer Lane to reach many people from many areas of our City and County. We are easily accessible to thousands of people. Will you give us an opportunity to demonstrate to you and your family the love of Christ?


Pastor Steve Kihlthau
