In October 1980 this group decided to establish what is now known as First Indonesian Baptist Church, which is the first Indonesian church in Los Angeles area with Rev. John Lim as the first pastor. Initial members were 66 people.
On July 10, 1983 FIBC moved to our present location at 201 E. Lime Ave. It’s because of God’s blessings and grace, and the support and participation of all members that we could raise enough fund to purchase this building. Furthermore, a year later, FIBC was accepted to be a member of Transformation Ministries (formerly American Baptist Churches of the Pacific Southwest)
