"Belive in Jesus Christ

and you will be saved."

- Acts 16:31 

"For there is no other name under heaven given to people by which we must be saved." - Acts 4:12


ACTS 2:42-47

"They continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common, and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need. So continuing DAILY with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church DAILY those who were being saved."



Our Vision is to restore the simple, powerful, and authentic church community found in the Book of Acts.



Our Mission is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and show the power of God's love to everyone we can.

Our Values

Teaching, Fellowship, Communion, Prayer, Generosity, and Devotion.


Jimmy and Catie have been married since 2005. They have four children and they're commited to home education


In 2015, AuthentiCity Church began as a home Bible study with just three of their friends who did not know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.


In 2016, the home Bible study grew so they rented a small venue space in Escondido and officially joined the Southern Baptist Convention. That same year Jimmy and Catie also became full-time North American Mission Board church planters.  


By 2018, AuthentiCity had grown to baptize 23 people.


In, 2019 AuthentiCity moved into their current location inside Cielo Village in Rancho Santa Fe.


The Rippy family has lived in Rancho Santa Fe since 2010. Their dream is that everyone in the community would be able to experience the awesome life, love, and power of Jesus Christ.
