In 2016, Jimmy and Catie Rippy started a Bible study in their home with just three friends who wanted to learn more about God. Their Bible study continued to grow and 23 men, women, and children were baptized by their second year.
They witnessed God radically transform people's lives and it confirmed they were called to plant a Christian church in their home community of Rancho Santa Fe.
Their passion is to build a church that resembles the original church in The Book of Acts (Acts 2:42-47). At that time, there was a new and powerful move by the Spirit of God and the Word of God was boldly preached. Jimmy and Catie believe the Spirit is moving again today to awaken people everywhere to the truth that Jesus Christ is Lord and He's coming back again to reign on earth!
In 2016, AuthentiCity became 501c3 non-profit organization and the church gathers for worship on Sunday's at Caliber 3 in San Marcos, CA.
