Jesus replied: ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.” – Matthew 22:37-38. 2) The Great Commission. “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” – Matthew 28: 19-20. >We desire to love God, love others, and to express that love by sharing Jesus with the world! Church History: The Lord’s Grace of Downey (LGD) was founded in 1972 as an independent, non-denominational church. Her roots were in El Monte, CA with a branch of Bethel Church in Indonesia. The church services were in the Dutch language. The Lord led the founding Pastor George J. Preijers, with a hand full of families, to start The Lord’s Grace Assembly in Downey. Downey is a central location for this little church made up from immigrants primarily from the Netherlands and Indonesia, hence an ethnic Dutch-Indonesian church. In the mid seventies the church experienced a mighty move of the Holy Spirit. Many were added. Lives were changed. The building was enlarged. Our Future:Over the years as the founding members moved or passed away, the focus has become more that of a local church with a global vision. Whereas people drove to church from long distances, increasingly they are coming from the church’s neighborhood. The church has become ethnically diverse and is attracting people from different types of backgrounds. God’s presence is experienced here as evidenced by the oneness, grace and love He brings to this local expression of His Body! God the Father loves His Family and wants His Family to grow!
