Who We Are

Committed to teaching the Word of God dynamically and accurately while worshiping God affirmatively and passionately. Our worship style is described as "Gospel" with a "Gaither-homecoming" feel to it. The hymns you love with multi-generational songs you've come to know. Located in the heart of La Mirada near Biola University; near the intersection of La Mirada Blvd & Imperial Hwy, behind the Home Depot. We are a non-denomninational church affiliated with the American Restoration Movement with "no creed but Christ; no book but the Bible." We know we are not the only Christians, but we strive to be Christians, only.

Our Services

What are services like?
We invite you to bring your brain and your sense of humor. Our tone is joyful and lively in what some call a more traditional Gospel-style musical format. The teaching is directly from the Bible, broken down and explained dynamicallty and relevantly. We dig deep into the Word of God to accurately handle the tough passages that many seem to gloss over. We take on unusual and even controversial topics as they arise in the Bible. We hold to the standard: "In essentials unity, in opinions liberty, in all things love."

What is the community like?
79% of the homes closest to our church have people who are in the Midlife stage of their lives, those ages 45 and up. We find that most Midlifers either attend church or used to attend church. Of those who used to attend church, many of those stopped going because a majority of churches have stopped meeting the needs of Midlifers in programming, teaching, and worship. LMCC's goal is to reach the neighborhood and minister to Midlifers in the way God created us- in body, mind, soul, and spirit. We strive to "church the unchurched" and "re-church the de-churched." Plus, we have programs for all ages and stages.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Before God created the world, the Bible says that He chose humankind to "stand before Him holy and blameless in His sight." He didn't pre-select a few, but CHOSE every person. He still does. He also stated that He knew we couldn't be "holy & blameless" ourselves because of our sins and failures, but that we could be "holy & blameless in His sight." That sets up the path of forgiveness and restoration of which each and every person may follow. God's path is relationships, not religion. God is much more interested in your future than your past; a future that begins right now. And, better than most airlines these days, there's no extra charge for your baggage! Fears, doubts and questions are welcome here!

Jay Mahan

Jay Mahan

Jay Mahan is the Lead Pastor. Along with his wife of over 30 years, Karen, Pastor Jay has been the senior minister at LMCC since March of 2011. This is Pastor Jay's second ministry here, having served as the Associate Minister and Worship Pastor from 1988-93. Having been "bi-vocational" throughout most of his career, Pastor Jay has also built a second career "out in the real world." As such, instead of the proverbial "ivory tower," he brings a "real world" perspective to his teaching and leadership. All while maintaining a positive, intelligent, and humorous (sometimes kooky) demeanor. Some say he puts the "fun" back in "fundamental."
