A Brief History

Christians began meeting as the church in Los Angeles in 1962. Since then, the church has been a spiritual home for thousands of believers and has been instrumental in gospel preaching and church planting efforts throughout North America and abroad.

In 2012-2013 we are celebrating our Jubilee anniversary (50th year — Lev. 25:10Leviticus 25:10 And you shall sanctify the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family.; Luke 4:18-19Luke 4:18-19
18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to announce the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to send away in release those who are oppressed,
19 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, the year of jubilee.”
). As befitting the Jubilee, the church is presently renewing its commitment to prayer and outreach by announcing the gospel and supporting the planting of churches in Santa Barbara, California and other locales.
