No one enjoys being fake. At Renovate we seek to follow Jesus as the truest expression of ourselves.



God has always called people to Himself so that He can send them to others. We seek to live as a person sent on a mission of love in our homes, our jobs, our schools and everywhere we go.



We are all in process. Not one of us is completely the person we hope to be. This is what renovated lives is about – letting God continue to craft us into the masterpiece He desires us to be.

Each week we come together to worship God from different backgrounds, generations, and perspectives for a meaningful experience with God and others – that’s what Sunday mornings are all about.




A place where a person with no church background can come and feel comfortable and enjoy the service because the atmosphere will be friendly. The sermons are always practical, biblical and relevant. A church that is fun for the entire family, a church where kids want to go because they have a great time experiencing God’s love. A church that is becoming a family of families.

Brief History of Renovate

Renovate Church was originally founded as First Baptist Church of San Luis Obispo in 1883 by 22 people who felt a call to the mission of God here in this city. Throughout the years we have met in many different facilities and have owned two different buildings, but one thing has stayed the same – the heart for seeing God’s love poured out on this city. To see a few more details about this amazing story of faithfulness, check out the history wall in the lobby.

Our Core Values

Values are what we consider important and worthwhile. We have 5 core values here at Renovate and rather than just list them here, we want to invite you into a conversation that we call Next Steps. Some churches call this a membership class, but we believe that being a part of a church is like being on a team so this class is all about what it means to be on Team Renovate. Look in the bulletin for future available classes.
