"OUR CALL AS A CONGREGATION

We are called to be a community of faith, a welcome table, that celebrates the rich diversity of its membership as it serves and honors the diverse cultural and ethnic nature of Los Angeles and surrounding communities.  We are called to be deeply grounded in the Word and Witness through the power of the Holy Spirit, being a prophetic voice for  justice, healing and transformation.  We are called to manifest the love of Christ as we share our various sources of capital with the community as well as being a witness to God's reign through celebrative worship and care for one another.

Latest Worship.

Welcome

First Baptist Church of Los Angeles is a place where people:  can meet Jesus,  engage in life-giving community,  and be loved, appreciated and welcome. 
We believe in creating a space where people can have authentic encounters with Christ, discover their gifts and use them for God's glory.

Unfortunately, we need to share with everyone that attended Sunday, November 15th Worship service that someone in our worship group has tested positive for Covid.

II Corinthians 5:17-21
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ,  the new creation  has come: The old has gone, the new is here!   18 All this is from God,  who reconciled us to himself through Christ  and gave us the ministry of reconciliation:  19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them.  And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.  20 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors,  as though God were making his appeal through us.  We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.   21 God made him who had no sin  to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
