Compass Bible Church

Compass Bible Church was planted in Orange County in 2005 to make disciples of Jesus Christ. By God’s grace and through the verse-by-verse teaching of the Bible, CBC has seen this mission realized in the changed lives of thousands of growing Christians who call Compass their church home.

Founded by Pastor Mike Fabarez, CBC Aliso Viejo offers ministry options every day of the week through study groups, youth ministries, outreach events and more. The church has also planted four other churches in California and beyond. It’s location directly across the street from Compass Bible Institute provides the unique opportunity to immerse students in an in-person classroom setting that is also inextricably connected to the active ministry of Compass Bible Church Aliso Viejo. This is a rare and, in many ways, ideal solution for theological education.
