Our History

SBCC was founded on September 20, 1992 by Senior Pastor Gary Shiohama and a team of only 15 people. Each week the team unpacked all of their equipment from a truck and set up church in the JCI in Gardena. In the fall of 1998, we moved into a public storage building, where we met for 12 years. When our lease ended, we began meeting in various locations across the South Bay, until God graciously blessed us with our current home on 190th St.
