Welcome to the Mission Road Church of Seventh-day Adventists website. Although our church is historically a "Japanese" church (previously known as the Loma Linda Japanese Church), we are an international group open to all people. We have services in both English and Japanese. We invite you to come and join us in our praise of our Lord and Savior. And may your visit with us be a foretaste of what the Family of God in heaven will be like!
We Bought a Church!
On Jan. 15, 2014, our church officially became owner of the church at 27240 Alabama Street, Redlands, CA 92373. It was truly a miracle in that the property was already in escrow with some developers. However, the developers, on hearing of our churches desire to purchase and continue preaching the Gospel at that location, cancelled escrow and gave us the opportunity to purchase it.
Our first worship service was on April 5. And then on April 26 a Grand Opening/Ribbon-cutting Ceremony was held. The opening began with representatives from various periods in our church history, the pastors and the conference officials cutting the ribbon tied to the two trees in the plaza area. Then a worship of dedication was held with special musics from our handbell choir & the Japanese choir, and the Southeastern California Conference officials leading out. After worship, we had a feast to celebrate and to thank God for opening up the way for us to obtain a 7,400 facility on 5.7 acres of land. Photos of our Grand Opening Celebration.
