Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family

Who we are

Here's the deal, TLG HOUSE cares about one thing more than anything else, Jesus Christ. TLG HOUSE is a family of individuals that have found unconditional love in Jesus, and simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same freedom.

Where we come from

The Lord’s Grace (TLG) was founded in 1972 as an independent, non-denominational church. Her roots were in El Monte, CA with a branch of Bethel Church in Indonesia. The Lord led the founding Pastor George J. Preijers, with a hand full of families, to start The Lord’s Grace Assembly in Downey. Downey was a central location for this little church made up from immigrants primarily from the Netherlands and Indonesia, an ethnic Dutch-Indonesian church.

Over the years as the founding members moved or passed away, the focus has become a local church with a global mission.

The church continues to expand while increasing in diversity. God’s presence is experienced here as evidenced by the oneness, grace, and love He brings to this local expression of His Body!

Where we're headed

What's the bottom line? More than ever, TLG Church is committed to fostering a family built around REAL Love, People and connections. Love for what for God is going to do through YOU in the future to minister to the Hurting, Broken and Lost so that they can be Healed, Whole, and Found in Jesus Christ. And as we move forward as a church family, inclusion and belonging remain at the center of who we are as followers of Christ.
