Once they outgrew the house, they moved to a funeral home, in the building that is now Sue’s Health Foods, to continue their services. Yucaipa First Baptist Church sent an interim pastor to lead the services and became the mother church to this new congregation.

Jones to be the first permanent pastor, and he preached his first sermon on June 14, 1964.
