In 1978 the Immanuel church withdrew from the General Conference Mennonite Church and renamed itself the Downey Immanuel Church. For several years the congregation functioned independently, until 1985, when it affiliated with the [[Pacific District Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches (United States Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches)|Pacific District Conference]] of [[Mennonite Brethren Church|Mennonite Brethren]] Churches. Shortly thereafter the church changed its name to Living Hope Church. Sometime after this date, the congregational became a non-denominational church.
