Downey First Christian Church is an increasingly multi-cultural church, set at the edge of Los Angeles county. While we do not belong to a denomination, our doctrinal tradition is rooted in the Restoration Movement of the 1800's. It is our desire to concentrate on the essentials of the Christian faith, while allowing for diversity of opinions when it comes to the non-essentials. DFCC has been located on the corner of 4th and New Streets in Downey, CA since its founding in 1869. Throughout the years many changes have faced the church, from seeing the landscape slowly change from orange groves to a highly urbanized city, or from having a mainly Caucasian outreach to beginning to reflect the Hispanic community which surrounds it.
