Our Church History
From the Heart Church Ministries of Los Angeles is a part of From the Heart Church Ministries Worldwide™ (“From the Heart”). From the Heart began in 1981 as Full Gospel Church in Marlow Heights, Maryland with a call from God to the late Dr. John A. Cherry (1940 – 2019) and his wife, Reverend Diana P. Cherry. They established a church with a mission to build strong families through teaching the people to love God, hate sin and love to give. On July 8, 1999, Full Gospel withdrew from its former denomination and From the Heart was established. From the Heart is one church worldwide with a common Vision, Plan and Motivation extracted from the Word of God, based on the Word of God and subject to the Word of God.
At present, there are From the Heart churches located in each region of the United States and around the world, on six different continents. The current Episcopal Pastor, Bishop John A. Cherry, II is responsible for the spiritual, administrative and financial oversight of From the Heart. From the Heart Church Ministries of Los Angeles was established on December 12, 2012.
Episcopal Pastor Emeritus John A. Cherry perfected the first congregation of mature believers who loved the Lord, were eager to learn the rightly divided Word of Truth, and desired to receive the Word of God with sincere appreciation and excitement. Those members were taught how to be perfected From the Heart members and how to live by what they were taught, and the church grew spiritually, administratively and financially.
With the help of the Parent Church and other ‘sister’ From the Heart churches, a church home was purchased, and the Dedication Service was held on Sunday, July 14, 2013. The core group of dedicated members continued to work diligently to keep the church functional and the church continued to grow and mature. On Sunday, June 1, 2014, the Episcopal Pastor appointed Reverend Tyrone La Rose as the pastor and the Los Angeles church has continued to grow and develop under the Pastoral team of Pastor and Mrs. La Rose.
