Mission Statement

The Azusa Street Mission Foundation, Inc. is dedicated to:

  • Honor the spiritual birthplace of millions
  • Recognize Pastors William and Jennie Seymour for igniting a multicultural spiritual renewal
  • Inspire others about the history of the Azusa Street Revival (1906-1909)
  • Work towards the enhancement of the historical site located in the Little Tokyo area of Los Angeles

The next project is to develop a mural about the Azusa Street Revival on a wall which stands on the historic church site. A world renowned artist has been asked to create the mural.
