Saddleback Church is a Baptist Evangelical megachurch located in Lake Forest, California, situated in southern Orange County, affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention. It is the largest church in California, and one of the largest in the United States of America. The church has several campuses in California and around the world. Weekly church attendance was 23,494 people in 2020. The senior pastor is Rick Warren.
In 1979, Rick Warren recently graduated in theology, settled with his wife Kay in the area of Saddleback Valley, in Orange County, California. He began to probe the people in his neighborhood to find out what prevented them from coming to church. The answers that emerged were boredom, distance from everyday life, lack of welcome for visitors, insistence on money and inadequate programs for children. It is with these concerns that the church began in 1980, with a Bible study group, with seven people, the pastor Rick Warren and his wife, in their condo. The first worship service took place in the gymnasium of a high school on Easter Day in 1980. In 1995, it opened its main building in Lake Forest, with a 3,500-seat auditorium. 
In 2018, the church said it had baptized 50,000 people since its founding.
According to a church census released in 2020, it claimed a weekly attendance of 23,494 people. 
In 2006, the church inaugurated a second campus in San Clemente, California. Other campuses have opened in Irvine South, Irvine North, Corona, San Juan Capistrano, Anaheim, Laguna Woods, Los Angeles, San Diego, South Bay, Newport-Mesa, Yorba Linda as well as four international campuses in South Manila, Philippines; Hong Kong; Buenos Aires, Argentina; and Berlin, Germany. Saddleback also offers an online worship service.
In November and December 2006, Saddleback Church played host to the second annual Global Summit on AIDS and the Church. The summit featured 60 speakers, including Senators Barack Obama and Sam Brownback.
On August 16, 2008, Rick Warren arranged a meeting between Senators John McCain and Barack Obama at Saddleback called the Civil Forum on the Presidency. The format of the forum was structured such that Warren first asked Obama a series of questions; he then asked McCain very similar ones subsequently. It was broadcast live on national news networks and streamed online. Tickets were distributed to the public through a raffle with seats listing as high as $1,000 and the event was sold out.
