Unity Fellowship Church, Los Angeles (UFCLA) was founded in 1982 by Reverend Carl Bean for openly gay and lesbian African Americans. The first meetings were held in the private residence of Rev. Bean, on Cochran Avenue in Los Angeles. In 1984, a reorganization took place in the last residence of the late Archbishop William Morris O’Neill, located on South Burnside Avenue (also the ordination site of our founder). Weekly Bible studies then moved to the home of Deacon Christine Tripp.
We believe in the teachings of Jesus but we do not dismiss all other faiths and beliefs as wrong or second to our way of believing. God is greater than any religion, denomination or school of thought.
We resoundingly proclaim that God is love and love is for everyone. Love compels the work of social justice foundational to a progressive reading of the Gospel of Christ. We are a big family of progressives, demonstrating God’s Love to all of God’s Children. We know that many marginalized people have been turned away from God because of hateful fundamentalist dialogue. We Welcome you with the very heart of God and with arms wide open.
