Jesus Christ, Chief Pastor
He is also Chief Pastor of all true Christians and true local gospel churches everywhere. See his bio here.
Jesus: “Before Abraham was, I am… I am the good shepherd. I know my own sheep, and they know me, as the Father knows me, and I know the Father. I lay down my life for the sheep… I am the way, truth, and life, no one comes to the Father except through me… [I] did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give [my] life – a ransom for many… Yes, I am coming quickly.” (Note: these quotes are taken from different statements and conversations Jesus has said in different contexts in the Bible).
You can pray to him directly, read the Bible, and contact him through his body, the church.
PJ Tibayan, Pastor
PJ: I grew up in a Roman Catholic practicing home and heard the gospel in 1989 when a lady told me that I would never be good enough for God and the only way to be forgiven of sin was through believing in Jesus Christ and not my good works and religion. She read to me Ephesians 2:8-9 and I felt convicted of my guilt and called on the Lord Jesus to save me (and he did!). I served first as a youth pastor then assistant pastor at at Christian Fellowship Bible Church in Walnut, CA (2002-2007, now meeting in West Covina) while completing my master of divinity degree (M. Div.) at The Master’s Seminary (2006). I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies from The Master’s College (2002). I was a pastoral intern at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington DC in the spring of 2008 before we planted CrossView Church in October of that year. I served CrossView as the pastor for preaching until October 2014. I now have the privilege and joy of serving as pastor at First Southern Baptist Church since November 2014.
I’m happily married to Frances and have a son and three daughters. We pray God adds to our family. I love the Lord Jesus, my family, First Southern Baptist Church, all gospel churches, reading the Bible and other books about God and Jesus, Los Angeles, viewing the city from the Griffith Observatory, the Lakers, playing basketball, hip-hop, edifying Christian lyrics, wrestling my son and hugging my daughters, and dating my wife, though not all to the same degree.

Other Pastors: Currently there are no other pastors at this time though we are praying that God would raise up and give us more as the church grows in health.
Deacons: Deacons meet the qualifications of 1 Timothy 3.8-13 and are our lead servants at our church who model mature Christianity especially when it comes to grace-empowered character and solid biblical conviction.
The deacons of FSBC Bellflower fill supportive roles as they coordinate various ministries that relate to the physical needs of the congregation. As those who free the pastors to provide spiritual oversight to the church, the deacons each oversee a particular church ministry (e.g. Sound Ministry or Music). At their discretion, the deacons gather volunteers in support of their work. Potential deacons are nominated by the pastors and voted on by the congregation before beginning service.
In their service to the church, the deacons and deaconesses compose serving schedules, direct activities, and communicate specific needs within their ministry to the congregation. On any given Sunday, deacons may be found ushering children, preparing communion, or giving a member a ride home, among many other activities. Read more about what we believe about deacons here.
