Downey Central Missionary Baptist Church

Downey Central Missionary Baptist Church was organized on March 22, 1964, sent out from our sister church in Sacramento.  We are an independent Baptist church located in the city of Downey, approximately 25 minutes south of Los Angeles. Our church is easily accessible from the 105, 605, and 91 freeways.

Although we associate with local, state, and national New Testament Baptist churches, we are an autonomous body of believers; we are self-governing and self-supporting. The head of the church is the Lord Jesus Christ.  It is our intent and desire to be a true New Testament church as demonstrated in the Scriptures.

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 28:19)  We have outreach efforts within our community and invite all to attend and hear & learn from God’s word.  If you’re interested in entertainment, flashy lights, and loud music, we’re probably not what you’re looking for.  However, if you are truly in search of God’s wisdom and learning what the Scriptures teach about life and our service to God and others, then you will find a home with like-minded believers!  We love our Bible studies and group discussions.

If you are interested in joining a church where you can do more than just sit on the pews, then please feel free to visit our church; we have plenty of work to do in our church and community.  We hope to see you soon!
