Who we are at Open Door
Church of the Open Door is a community of believers in Jesus Christ, firmly committed to the truths of God’s Word and grace. Our desire is to cultivate a family atmosphere where we can all grow in grace. Our deepest desire is that Church of the Open Door be used by God to meet the spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of people in the San Gabriel Valley, and those in other regions and nations as well.
From Hope Street to the Hillside
Since 1915, Church of the Open Door has been home to tremendous vision through a community of faith. For 70 years, we were located in downtown Los Angeles, often identified by the "Jesus Saves" signs, visible from the surrounding freeways. Through pastoral changes, campus changes, and world culture changes, our goal has remained the same: to share the good news of the Gospel and make disciples to Jesus Christ both here and around the world.
God has called Church of the Open Door to draw people to His Son so that His eternal purpose for every person can be realized. That’s our mission – to help you know Jesus and His purpose for your life. Behind this mission is our historic and deep commitment to the Gospel of Christ and the inerrancy of the Scriptures. Accomplishing this mission will come about as we fulfill the basic responsibilities of every local church: worship, instruction, fellowship and evangelism. We sense that God has given us a distinct assignment as a local church. We’re excited! We invite you to join us as we, together, pursue lives of eternal significance in Christ Jesus.
