The mission of St. John Baptist Church is as follows:

Glorify God among the people, so that the people may glorify God.

St. John Baptist Church is located in Los Angeles, CA, less than 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!

St. John, led by the Spirit, has decided to call his grandson, Rev. James Andrew Brooks II, as the new Pastor. Pastor James continues the legacy of St. John as a Bible-believing, Bible-preaching, Bible-teaching church. Come by this Sunday – we would love to have you with us!
