Welcome! and thank you for visiting our church’s site!sawtelle-japantown-sign

Our church has enjoyed a long presence in the neighborhood known as West LA or Sawtelle.  We continue our rich history as a church and at the same time we embrace the changes that are part of our community.  Where we are.


Our church was started in 1955 with a vision to share the good news of Jesus Christ with Japanese-speaking people in the area. Soon after that an English-speaking ministry was created to minister to second and third generation Japanese Americans, their children and their friends and neighbors.

It’s our desire to be open to all people regardless of ethnic or social background.  You might see that reflected in our worship service and other church activities.

At West LA it is our desire to teach the Bible as God’s Word and to hold it as authoritative in the church and all areas of our lives.  We also believe that being part of a Christ-centered church is vital for the continued health and growth of every follower of Jesus Christ.
