California is a state in need of
Forty million people call California their home, and in many ways this state leads and sets a cultural direction for the rest of the country. There are dozens of large cities without a soulwinning independent Baptist church.
Jesus Christ is the answer for California.
We firmly believe that together, we can make a significant impact for the gospel of Jesus Christ in this needy state. We are asking pastors and churches from around the country to join in prayer, strategic soulwinning, and church planting to reach the golden state.
The Purpose of California for Christ
1. To Equip Churches state-wide in developing soulwinning programs, and training in personal evangelism.
2. To Establish New Churches in all 58 counties.
3. To Engage Local Churches in church planting and awareness of legislation that threatens religious liberty.

Los Angeles Baptist Church
Pastor Salvador Menjivar and his family have been faithfully serving in The Los Angeles Baptist Church since 1999.
Before becoming a pastor he was a member of Lancaster Baptist Church, serving faithfully as a deacon and in various other ministries. Pastor at that time had a thriving business in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. However, God put it in his heart to sell his business and move from his home in Lancaster, California to the Los Angeles area. With his pastor’s approval he began to plant the Los Angeles Baptist Church.
