I am writing this review as an actual member of this church. Prior to becoming a member here, I was in fairly good teaching churches, which is very important to me. This is a bi-lingual church. Spanish and English. I speak and understand English and know some Spanish, but I have no problem understanding the sermons and bible studies. Pastor Eddie Ildefonso is fluent in both languages. This church is truly a missionary church that understands and lives out the "Great Commission" which is detailed in Matthew 28:19-20. This church has planted and is actively training leaders in Romania, Africa, Honduras, Guatemala, Pakistan, India and soon in Chile and Brasil. Over 500 churches worldwide. Pastor travels to these countries regularly each year and when not traveling, he conducts Skype training. There are also missionary teams that travel as well. Pastor Eddie is also the overseas dean of Covington Theological Seminary and partners with affiliated churches in overseas missionary efforts. Here at home, the congregation is also involved in local missionary efforts. All in all this is a great church to receive in depth teaching in the bible and learn to apply biblical principals in your life. I would recommend this church families and individuals looking for a church home in the Westchester area of Los Angeles.

It was well meaning and the people are cool, but some of the practices were unbiblical (i.e, praying in tongues as a requirement and on outside contact for the first month and only letter writing and church (only visitation after the 30-day probation). While on probation, the only option of drink is tea (supposedly for "detox" purposes).Church service focuses mainly on praying in tongues for an hour, healing prayer and dancing around. Their doctrine is very unclear. Bible studies are limited and all translations are accepted.The senior members frown if a person considers leaving or taking another path in life and they stressed that a person does not talk to the next person about their plans. One of the house leaders even pressured me to attend church the day of my departure.My advice for those who feel trapped is pray for boldness and tell the leaders what you really feel and your reasons for leaving.Before accepting an invitation to a program, ask questions and consult with former members on their side of the story.
