Our Story

'TIL HEAVEN IS OUR HOME

In a suburb not too far away...

Rowland Heights is a suburb located 25 miles east of Los Angeles. It has a population of nearly 50,000, which is very unique in its demographic. The population is 58.6% Asian with the next majority being 28.8% Hispanic, which makes up for 87.4% of those living in this city!

We have a very specific vision to be a church that reaches the unchurched English-speaking community in this area.

Our goal is, not to compete with, but to cooperate with existing churches in the area to expand the Kingdom of Jesus in this area for all!

Our story is one of many sacrificing for the greater goal of reaching non-Christians, in the community, with the gospel of Jesus.

We used to be the "English Ministry" of "Beautiful Church" (A Korean Southern Baptist Church). But we became independent (with the encouragement of our mother church) to reach more people with the good news of Jesus.

We used to be two separate churches with two different Pastors. But we combined forces to reach more people with the good news of Jesus.

We still work closely with our mother church. So that we can reach the next generation with the good news of Jesus.

We desire to be a church that is growing through reaching the non-Christians through our Family Churches.  So that we can reach more people with the good news of Jesus.
