Long Beach Buddhist Church is a non-denominational Buddhist community established with the idea of practicing pure Buddhism and to be in keeping with the American way of life. The term "non-denominational" or "non-sectarianism" means that the Buddha's original and pure teachings are followed in their entirety. With non-sectarianism, an attempt has made to foster the growth of American Buddhism.

The Long Beach Buddhist Church (LBBC) began as a dream of Reverend Kosai Osada (1911-1989) in 1951 with the first services being held at the Long Beach Japanese Community Center. In 1957, groundbreaking began for the Church at its present location in Long Beach at 2360 Santa Fe. Ave.

Reverend Osada’s aspiration was to return to the original teachings of Buddhism in its purest form and the Church has been following this philosophy ever since.
