Mission Statement

Our Mission is to promote spiritual growth.
Building a community of faith and making disciples of Christ by reaching out with compassion, forgiveness and love.
At West LA UMC, building a community of faith is what we are about.
A Warm Welcome!

West LA United Methodist Church welcomes everyone to experience God’s love and grace through worship, study groups, and programs.

We envision a community of faith growing in Christ through worship, study and prayer.  We seek to experience a deeper relationship with God and spiritual transformation, living according to the example of Christ and as the body of Christ.  We endeavor to apply God’s love in inter-generational and multi-cultural fellowship and to offer an extended family in Christ and a place of belonging to all.  We welcome and celebrate people of every gender identity, race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, class, ability and age.  We see our Church family sharing in a variety of worship experiences and expanding ministries, striving for social justice and ministering to all who are in need.
