Our History


By the grace of God, Stockton Baptist Church has been ministering 29 years to the spiritual needs of the San Joaquin Central Valley.


Pastor Kihlthau along with his wife, Linda, and their four children planted Stockton Baptist Church on February 21st, 1988. Over 5,000 doors were given personal invitations of the Gospel before the church began. 


 Our main goals over the years have always been to reach the lost and disciple the saved for the glory of God. We have consistently experienced tremendous growth as God’s “Miraculous Church” as a multi-cultural and caring church for the needs of all people.


 We believe God’s plan is for His Church to grow more and more in steps of faith but always expressive of God’s love to the individual and each family. Please consider being a part of our “Church Family” as we together strive to reach the lost around us and grow each day in the marvelous grace of God.
