Filipinos are known for having strong religious faith. Wherever they go, it is impossible not to notice the beliefs that they carry.

In the latest data released by the Pew Research Center, over 4.2 million Filipinos are in the United States of America. Los Angeles, in particular, had 500,000 Filipinos, while San Francisco had 310,000, the two American states with the highest concentrations of Filipinos.

Some Filipinos, particularly those who are new to California, may be curious about which churches they can visit. Here are several Filipino churches in the area.

FILIPINO DISCIPLE CHRISTIAN CHURCH

Filipinos, together with other ethnicities, gather here for fellowship. This church is praised for its hospitality, as well as for its excellent worship songs and Bible messages.

If you want to join them and socialize with fellow Christians, you can visit the church at 301 N Union Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90026, Westlake.

NEW LIFE CHURCH

Aims to provide an environment for worshiping God, New Life Church in Novato, California, encourages Filipino Americans to fellowship with others who share similar values, beliefs, and love for God.

This church offers Tagalog and English services every Saturday from 6 to 7:30 in the evening. Also, New Life Church conducts piano, rhythm, guitar, and drums lessons for free.

ST. COLUMBAN FILIPINO CHURCH

Established in 1945, St. Columban Church became the first Filipino parish in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

This church is known for its mosaic designs, including the Holy Spirit, Lamb of God, Sto. NiƱo, Baptism of Jesus by St. John the Baptist, and the Eucharist. Additionally, the bells of the church came from Antipolo, Rizal, Philippines.
