OUR MISSION STATEMENT

AS A BIBLE-CENTERED PREACHING AND TEACHING CHURCH OUR MISSION IS TO LEAD NON-BELIEVERS TO RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST AS LORD AND EQUIP CHRISTIANS THROUGH DISCIPLING, FELLOWSHIP, MINISTRY AND WORSHIP.

 

St. John Baptist Church is a small, predominantly African-American church located in Los Angeles, CA, about a 10-minute drive from the USC campus and the Coliseum (click here for a map). For nearly 67 years we were led by our late Pastor James A. Brooks (who recently made his transition at the ripe age of 105 years old – that’s not a typo!). During Pastor Brooks’s tenure, St. John grew to be one of the most recognized and well-respected churches in the Los Angeles area, changing the lives of countless individuals and families while glorifying God to the fullest!

Although currently without a pastor, St. John continues to move forward in the path God has set for us. We are a Bible-believing, Bible-preaching, Bible-teaching church that would love to have you with us!
