It is such a privilege to have you at Fearless LA today. We hope you feel loved and significant because that is the way God sees you.
Our ministry is built upon this creed from 1 John 4:18, which says, “There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear...” We challenge you to take this verse to heart and embrace the Fearless Life with us.
To begin, there is so much more to our church than what you see on a Sunday. Because we desire to see people reach their full potential, we offer a wide range of programs that cater to the needs of every age group. These programs are outlined on the following pages.
We believe that we were all born with love and purpose in mind. It is our desire for you to feel loved by God and others, and to see your God-given dreams become a reality.
We encourage you to avail yourselves of everything that Fearless LA has to offer, and we would be honored to have the privilege of partnering with you throughout your life’s journey.
Our Fearless Life Coaches and Fearless Pastors would love to connect with you, so join us after service in the New Lounge. We trust you will have a wonderful day at church. Our prayer is that you encounter God and are blessed in every way. Thank you again for coming!
Yours truly, Pastors Jeremy & Christy Johnson and the Fearless LA Family
Where We’ve Been In 2012, the dream of Fearless LA began; not in a nightclub, not in a church building, but in the hearts of our pastors. After serving for nearly ten years as youth pastors at The House Modesto, our Fearless pastors set out on a journey to Southern California with a small team of people who had a unified vision of God's calling to fearlessly love on a city.
We quickly hit the ground running and began holding gatherings at beaches and coffee shops in Orange County, with worship and messages geared to developing a strong, well-equipped team of leaders. Our team worked out of the Johnsons’ garage before we leased a small warehouse to be used as our office space. Though we intended to have small core team meetings, each week we had several visitors who had heard about them and wanted to learn more. These small, yet powerful gatherings would be a glimpse of the future, that one day we would have Orange County campuses. Despite this vision of what was to come, God clearly spoke to Jeremy and Christy that the church would begin in Los Angeles, California - the epicenter of change in our world. God opened doors for us to meet at Belasco Theater, a club in downtown LA, and we held monthly premier services throughout the summer of 2013. We were astounded by the number of people who would attend these services, and on September 1, 2013 we launched weekly services in downtown Los Angeles. Hundreds of people flooded the venue to discover what the buzz was all about. What once was a room full of mostly strangers, soon grew to be a room of family with a sense of belonging. A few months after the launch, we added a second service to accommodate our growing community. Our incredible team of volunteers grew in number, all working extremely hard to transform nightclubs into church experiences. All of the hard work, late nights, and the unloading and loading into different venues every week was what God had planned for a season, but a huge blessing came when Exchange LA, a club in the heart of downtown LA, invited us to hold weekly services at their venue. We still gather at Exchange LA weekly while we look for a permanent place to call home.

Fearless BND is made up of a large and diverse group of creatives who love to express worship to God through music. Our goal is to write praise and worship songs that break the mold and push the boundaries in music, while allowing people to experience the supernatural power of Jesus Christ. Eclectic in style, our team writes songs in a variety of genres, including Rock, Rap, Electronic, and Folk, to name a few. Our songs reflect what God is doing in our church body, as well as what He is doing in our lives individually. We feel a call to the local church as well as the global church, and always love leading worship at conferences, conventions, and other types of events that bring encouragement to the body of Christ. Above everything, our goal is to lead people into an encounter with God.
At Fearless Life, we believe in spirituality beyond a Sunday service. Fearless Life is all about connecting with others, strengthening your spirit, and growing in your walk with God. It’s a time to dive into the Word and build community within our church. Through Fearless Life, we aim to help you receive discipleship and build genuine connection with others. With locations meeting all over the greater LA area, we encourage you to come and get plugged in as we develop our relationships with each other and with Christ.

Fearless Kidz exists to empower children to become the next generation of fearless individuals who influence and change their world with the powerful message of Jesus Christ. This ministry desires to see children develop a deeper, personal relationship with God, while connecting with peers and adults who love and believe in them. We offer age appropriate teaching and care for children ages 1 through 10 in different age group settings. Our trained volunteers make each week an environment where your children encounter God through praise and worship, teaching from our dynamic Bible-based curriculum, attention-grabbing multimedia presentations, and high-energy games and activities. Not only will your children be cared for and engaged, but they will also be encouraged, empowered and released to step into the unique destiny that God has for their lives. We sincerely believe that God is raising up a generation of kids who will stand with an unshakeable faith that will move mountains and see a generation won for Jesus. As such, every activity is designed with this vision in mind.
Fearless LA believes in reaching our local community through a variety of creative methods. We want to inspire local individuals to find the love of Jesus, and we know that meeting the needs of our community is one way we can shine His light. Throughout the week, you might find some of our church members ministering at USC or UCLA, giving away backpacks to children in need, putting on high school outreaches, or simply giving out pancakes and coffee around the city. We hope that by being a positive presence in our local community, we will see our city transformed by the Holy Spirit. As God goes before us, we aspire to impact the community by touching individual lives with the love of Jesus, therefore empowering them to live out the fulness of life that God has for them.
