Panoramic view of downtown Los Angeles

The Hollywood Adventist Church is located in the heart of Hollywood—one of the most iconic neighborhoods of Los Angeles—known around the world. We take our urban context very seriously. We believe that God loves the city and therefore invites us to love the city on God’s behalf.

We love the city through our witness to God’s just and peaceable reign over the whole world. Visit our Peace + Justice page to learn more.

We also love our city by simply being involved in its life, eating in local restaurants, shopping in local stores, listening to and being in relationship with our neighbors, and participating in community and civic life.

The Crossroads @ Hollywood Mural project is one example of our effort to bring our community together around a conversation about our shared values and our vision for the future of Hollywood. Learn more at
