We’re hosting an open-house style gathering on March 12th for the community to come experience Breakthrough Church for themselves. Here are just a few things you can look forward to:

- A welcoming, friendly atmosphere;
- Casual music;
- Powerful teaching straight from the Bible;
- A free welcome gift for every new family; and…
- Free t-shirts for every guest

We can't wait to see you!


Newly reopened at the historic 722 S Main Street church building in Corona, Breakthrough is a no-perfect-people-allowed sort of a church. So whether you already have a church background or you’re just exploring, this is a great no-pressure opportunity to attend church one time and see how it fits you. 

Seriously, no pressure! In fact, if you attend and Breakthrough is not for you, we’ll be happy to help you find a church to attend. Because it’s not about our church. It’s about helping you find the right place to move forward in your spiritual journey.


We highly recommend that you go ahead and Plan Your Visit by clicking RSVP below. When you do this, we’ll reserve your welcome gift and t-shirt, meet you at the door when you arrive, show you around, help you find a seat, get your kids checked in if needed, and do whatever it takes to make your experience great! We’ll also send you an email and a few texts to make sure you have all the information you need to make the most of the day.

A church that draws circles around people, not lines.




At Breakthrough, our music is relaxed, high quality, and unpretentious. You'll love singing to today's latest songs with lyrics on screen and led by our trained worship leaders.


Every message is based on the teachings of the Bible and is carefully crafted to leave you with tools to face your week. You will leave impacted.



We love kids! Your children will have a blast learning about God in an environment created especially for them.


We believe in teenagers! Students are not the next generation at Breakthrough. They are today's generation. 



It's a come as you are sort of church where you'll meet real people with real problems. The only difference is, you're not alone in this anymore.


We know life can be hard and we want to help people win! So bring the whole family. It'll feel like home the moment you walk through the doors.



Every person that comes through the doors is prayed for. No matter what you are going through, you are welcome to bring it to Breakthrough.


At Breakthrough, you can belong before you believe. So don't worry about being perfect. We're a no-perfect-people-allowed sort of church.

We know attending a church for the first time can be scary. That's why we created PLAN YOUR VISIT. When you plan your visit, we will greet you at the door, show you around, get your kids checked in if you have any, and help you find a seat. We'll also give a welcome gift to you and your family just to let you know how glad we are that you came!


Questions about Services

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?We gather on Sundays at the Historic First Church building at 722 S Main Street in Corona. If you are sending mail, please send that to PO Box 1595, Corona, CA 92878.

WHAT TIME IS SERVICE?Services begin at 10:00AM and last about 75 minutes. If this is your first time to Breakthrough Church, we recommend arriving about 10 minutes early so we can show you around and answer any questions you may have.

WHAT DOES A TYPICAL SERVICE LOOK LIKE?Services at Breakthrough Church are casual, friendly, and last about 75 minutes. You can expect great music and a message that will leave you inspired.

WHERE DO I PARK?Parking in an urban area can be a bit tricky and several people have asked if they can park somewhere other than in front of the 99-cent store. So, we've done some research and scoped out places where people can park for Sunday services. 

Here are some options:
Street parking: There are generally spaces available Sunday mornings along Stan Reynolds Pkwy and Washburn Ave. Note: Many of these areas have a 2 hour limit.
Behind Starbucks: Most of the businesses behind Starbucks are closed on Sunday mornings, leaving a lot of available spaces. If you park here, you can then take the crosswalk directly to the church building. Be sure to grab a scone on your way!
Closed businesses by Pacific Premier Bank: There are several spaces available on Sunday mornings, and you can take the crosswalk by the Library and walk up to the church building from there.
Other places: You can also find spaces at the Corona Library, as it is closed on Sundays, but it's a little bit further away.

Questions about Kids & Youth

DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING FOR MY KIDS?We love kids! At Breakthrough Church, we have created environments for each age group:

If you have children up to 3 years old...
...your kids are welcome to join you in the service -OR- there is a parent lounge in the lobby where you can enjoy the service with kid friendly activities on-site. 

If you have children 4 years - 4th grade...
...your kids will experience a safe, secure, and exciting kids ministry environment just for them, located upstairs.

If your kids are in middle school (5th-8th grade)...
...your kids will join you for the beginning of service. After a few songs, they will be invited to go with our middle school leaders to a separate environment for their own time of Bible study and discussion.

If you have high schoolers (9th-12th grade)...
...they are invited to join the main service.

HOW SAFE IS THE KIDS ENVIRONMENT?We take your child's safety seriously, so every staff person in Breakthrough Kids has been properly interviewed, trained and gone through a thorough screening process.

Questions About the Church

WHERE DID BREAKTHROUGH CHURCH COME FROM?Breakthrough began when twenty people formed a "Launch Team" out of New Life Community Church. This team spent several months praying and dreaming about the kind of church that people who don't like church would end up loving. Today, you will see these team members in the form of greeters, tech volunteers, and children's workers at Sunday gatherings. They can't wait to meet you!

WHO IS YOUR PASTOR?Our pastor is Brian Drinkwine. You can find out more about him and his family in the "About Our Pastor" section below.

Personal Questions

WILL YOUR CHURCH ACCEPT ME DESPITE MY MISTAKES?So... you're not perfect? Perfect! You've come to the right place. Breakthrough Church is a different kind of church. You won't feel weird about showing up on a Sunday. That's because we're a judgment free, no-perfect-people-allowed kind of church.

WHAT IF I'M NOT A CHRISTIAN? CAN I STILL ATTEND?Absolutely! In fact, we started this church for you! We believe that you will find Breakthrough Church to be a loving and accepting community, free of judgment or high pressure tactics. So come, sit back, relax, and enjoy yourself.

THE BIBLE. GOD'S STORYThe Bible, composed of the Old and New Testaments, is the divinely inspired Word of God, the final and trustworthy authority for faith and practice, and the story which gives meaning to our existence. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit, is truth without error, and is found today exactly as God intended it to be. The Bible is the supreme authority for faith and practice for followers of Christ.
(Deut. 4:1-2; II Timothy 2:15, 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21)

GOD. THREE IN ONEGod has existed in relationship with Himself for all eternity. God exists in one essence in a perichoresis of three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
(Gen. 1:1; Deut. 6:4; John 4:24, 14; Gal. 4:6; 2 Pet. 1:17; Psalm 2:7; Isaiah 7:14; John 1:1-18; Hebrews 1:8; Psalm 51:11; 1 John 4:13, 5:7; Acts 5:3-4)

THE FATHER. OUR PROTECTORGod is great: He is all powerful, all knowing, ever present, unchanging, completely worthy of our trust, and above all, holy. It is in Him that we live, move, and exist. God is good: He is our Father. He is loving, compassionate, and saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Christ Jesus.
(Exodus 3:14; Numbers 23:19; Leviticus 11:44-45; 19:2; Psalm 11:4-6; Malachi 3:6; John 3:16, 4:24, 5:26, 14:1; Acts 17:28; Romans 3:3-4)

JESUS. OUR HEROThe Son of God, sent by the Father, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, fully divine, fully human, the eternal and pre-existent Word. His death made full atonement for our sins. He lived a perfect life and received punishment for our sins when He died on the cross. He defeated death in His resurrection so that all who trust in Him could have life.
(Is 7:14; 53; Matt 1:18-23, 14:33, 16:16, 28:5-6; Lk 22:70; John 1:1-3, 14; 10:30; Acts 1:9; 2:22-24; 7:55-56; Rom 1:3-4; 3:23-26; 8; 10:4, 2 Cor 5:19-21; Gal 4:4-5; Phil 2:5-11; 1 Tim 2:5-6; 3:16; Heb 1:1-3, 4:14-15, 12:2, 13:8)

THE HOLY SPIRIT. OUR GUIDEThe Holy Spirit, sent by the Son, convicts people of their sin, guides believers into all truth, empowers all who believe in Jesus Christ, and reveals the righteousness of God. The Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ, helps, teaches, and guides God’s children into the likeness of Christ.
(Genesis 1:2; Psalms 51:11, 139:7 ff.; Isaiah 6:1:1-3; Joel 2:28-32; Mark 1:10; Luke 1:35, 4:1, 11:13, 12:12; John 15:26, 16:7-14; Acts 1:8, 2:1-4, 2:38, 13:2; Romans 8:9-11, 14-16, 26-27; 1 Corinthians 3:16; Ephesians 1:13-14; 2 Peter 1:21; Revelation 22:17)

ETERNITY. SOMEWHERE FOREVERHumans were created to exist forever, whether eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. Heaven is eternal life with God and Hell is eternal separation from God. Both are places of eternal existence.
(Matthew 24:29-31; Matthew 25:31-46; John 3:16, 36, 11:26-26; Romans 6:23; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18; 1 John 2:25, 5:11-13; Rev. 20:4-6, 11-15)

HUMANITY. GOD'S REFLECTIONHumans are made in the image of God and are the supreme object of God’s creation created to have fellowship with Him, but became separated in that relationship through sin. As a result, human beings cannot attain a right relationship with God through our own effort. Every human personality is uniquely created, possesses dignity, and is worthy of respect and Godly love.
(Gen 1:26-30; 2:7, 18-19; 3; Ps 8:3-6; 32:1-5; 51:5; Isaiah 6:5; Acts 17:26-31; Rom 1:19-32; 3:10-18, 23; 5:6, 12-21; 6:6; 7:14-25; 1 Cor 1:21-31; 15:19, 21-22; Col 1:21; 3:9-11; Deut. 4:1-2; II Timothy 2:15, 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21)

SALVATION. GOD'S ONLY WAYJesus Christ’s death and resurrection provides the only way of salvation for the forgiveness of sin. When people trust Jesus Christ as Savior, they receive salvation. Salvation is a gift from God and it cannot be earned through our own efforts. Through Christ the believer becomes a new creation whose mind and will are transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit.
(Matt 1:21; 22:37-38; 27:22-28:6; 28:18-20; Rom 1:16-18; 3:23-25; 5:8-10; 6; 8; 10:9-10; 13; 1 Cor 1:18; 2 Cor 5:17-20; Gal 2:20; 3:13; Eph 2:8-22; Phil 2:12-13; Heb 9:24-28; 1 John 1:6-2:11; Rev 3:20)

THE CHURCH. PLAN AThe Church is God’s chosen instrument sent by the Holy Spirit to accomplish His mission to rescue lost people. We believe in the local church and the instruction of the Bible to all Christ followers to associate themselves in a visible, local church. Members of the local church are to be on mission with God in spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world.
(Matthew 16:15-19; 28:18-20 Rom. 10:9-10; Acts 1:8; 16:30-33; I Corinthians 6:19; 11:23-26; Galatians 3:26-28; Eph. 1:22-23; Hebrews 10:23-25; James 1:27; 2:8)

THE KINGDOM. GOD'S DREAMThe Kingdom of God (a.k.a. Kingdom of Heaven) is the realization of God’s perfect design and plan for humanity and the world around it. It broke into our world with the arrival of Jesus, is “here but not yet,” brings healing and restoration to a lost and broken world, and is made known through God’s chosen instrument, the Church. We believe God has invited us, His followers, to join Him in this work of renewal on earth, to partner with our Creator to see the Kingdom made reality in our world, and to one day see the Messiah, King Jesus, seated on the throne. In the Kingdom, the last are made first and the first are made last, it is very truly an upside-down reality. The signs of His kingdom coming are salvation, joy, peace, justice, God’s presence, belonging, and healing.
(1 Chronicles 29:11; Zechariah 14:9; Matthew 4:17; Matthew 5:10; Matthew 5:19; Matthew 6:9-10; Matthew 6:33; Matthew 16:19; Matthew 19:14; Mark 1:15; Luke 10:9; Luke 12:32; John 3:3; Colossians 1:13-14; Revelation 21:5)

NONESSENTIALS. IN ALL THINGS CHARITYWe affirm that the doctrines of the Trinity, the deity of Christ, the bodily resurrection, the atoning work of Christ on the cross, and salvation by grace through faith make up the essential, distinctive nature of Christianity. We acknowledge that there are peripheral, nonessential doctrines that are important to fellow believers but may not be critical to salvation. While Breakthrough Church may hold positions on these nonessentials, we will not allow these doctrines to cause division within the church. We will accept into our body those who have differing views on the nonessential doctrines but will not allow those of a different opinion to fracture the church.
(Proverbs 29:22; John 13:35; 1 Cor. 13:1-2; Romans 14:1-3; Romans 14:18-19; 1 Corinthians 1:10; 1 Corinthians 8:1-13; 1 Corinthians 13:1-13; 2 Corinthians 13:11; Philippians 2:1-3; 1 Peter 3:8; Galatians 3:28; Ephesians 4:1-6; 2 Timothy 2:14; 2 Timothy 2:23-24; Titus 3:9)
