When you join us in one of our services, you will be met with a friendly and loving church family. Our ushers will help you find a seat and please don't be afraid to introduce yourself. During service, the congregation will sing hymns that is glorifying to God and encouraging to the soul. Don't worry if you don't know the song. Then, the most important part of the service is the preaching of the word of God.
If you have any type of question, feel free to send us a question, give us a call, or attend one of our services.

There is no dress code at Los Angeles Baptist Church for members or guests. Our ministry leaders and many of our church family dress in more traditional “Sunday” dress; however, our main goal is that you would feel welcome and comfortable on your visit.
No. We don't invite you to church for your offering. We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find in this place a warm family spirit, truth from God's Word, and a place where you can grow in God's grace. Please don't feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.
Here at Los Angeles Baptist Church, there is always a place for you. Whatever stage you are in life, you and your family will find God's grace and love as well as practical Bible principles that will make a difference in you and your family's lives.
The Bible says that He is, "not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." (2 Peter 3:9) The Bible tells us in I John 5:13, “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life...” The simple truth is God wants you to know where you're going! So, here it is in a nutshell:
Our sin creates a separation between us and eternal life with God.
In order to find the way to eternal life with God, I must admit I am lost in sin. Romans 5:12 teaches us that since Adam and Eve, the first man and woman on earth, a sin nature has been present in all people. Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Sin is any act contrary to God’s laws and commandments, and those sins that I have committed separate me from God. Sin has a penalty. Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” The “wage” or payment for our sin is spiritual death, and eternal separation from God.
Religion and good works cannot bridge the gap created by our sin.
Religions try to create their own ways to God. Their systems may seem logical, but they cannot bridge the gap created by our sin. Proverbs 14:12 says, “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” In other words, our thoughts and ways are not what matter. God’s Word, the Bible, provides true answers of grace and forgiveness. In Ephesians 2:8–9 the Bible says, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
Through His death on the cross, Jesus Christ paid for our sins and delivers to us the way to eternal life in Heaven.
Even though we were lost and separated from God, He loved us, and because He is love, God sent His Son to die on the Cross and raise from the dead three days later. John 3:16 explains “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Through the death and resurrection of Jesus, He became the payment for our sin. Now, we do not have to pay for our sin ourselves. By His grace, salvation is provided. In Romans 5:8, the Bible says, “But God commendeth [meaning proved or demonstrated] his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
We must place our full trust in Jesus Christ alone for forgiveness and eternal life.
In order to have a relationship with God and an eternal home in Heaven, we must stop trusting ourselves, our works, and our religions, and place our full trust in Jesus Christ alone for the forgiveness of our sin and eternal life. In Roman 10:13 the Bible says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” That is a promise directly from God that if you will pray to Him, confess that you are a sinner, ask Him to forgive your sins, and turn to Him alone to be your Saviour; He promises to save you and give you the free gift of eternal life. You can make that decision today by praying from your heart, something like this:
Dear God, I know that I am separated from you because of sin. I confess that in my sin, I cannot save myself. Right now, I turn to you alone to be my Saviour. I ask you to save me from the penalty of my sin, and I trust you to provide eternal life to me.
If you have made the decision to trust Christ as your Saviour, we would like to rejoice with you. Please Contact us and let us know of your decision.
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Psalm 51:10
This January, we want to invite you and be a part of a marvelous moment of revival. Our world, our nation, our families, even ourselves.... we need to get back to our God. On these four nights, we will have a guest preacher bring messages that will tender our hearts and move closer to God's Word.
This is just a small moment for couples to cherish and enjoy the fellowship with each other. The Couples Luncheon is an organized lunch date to one of the well-known restaurants in the Los Angeles Area. There, each couple can fellowship with other couples of the church and learn from the Bible as Pastor gives a lesson. We pray that this event will bring good memories and wonderful lessons in building the family.
