Welcome To Strength Church

Welcome to Strength Church where we put God first as Jesus taught us.  “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind.”  (Matthew 22:37) 
That is why God is the center of our worship, our learning, our growth and our lives. 
Are you looking for something different?   If so, you’ve come to the right place.  
Based in Lakewood, California, Strength Church is led by Pastors Kevin & Jennifer Johnson.  We are a small, non-denominational congregation dedicated to glorifying God. 
Strength Church is a Bible-based, Christ-centered church focused on loving and helping each other to live strong, faith-filled Christian lives.  We invite you to come and talk to us about God.
