Our Vision

MBCLA exists to glorify God through the fullness of our worship overflowing to fellowship, equipping, service, local evangelism, and global missions, thereby fulfilling the Great Commission.

Our History

Mandarin Baptist Church of Los Angeles was founded in 1963 under the leadership of Dr. Y.K. Chang, THD.

Dr. Chang went to be with the Lord in 1975, and in 1976, Senior Pastor, Rev. Peter Chung was called to lead MBCLA.

Over the years, MBCLA has planted several daughter churches, including Chinese Baptist Church of West Los Angeles, Mandarin Baptist Church of Pasadena, Mandarin Baptist Church of San Fernando Valley, New Life Baptist Church, and Mandarin Baptist Church of Glory.
