On June 4, 1911, community residents convened to plan the construction of the first church in Yorba Linda to offer Christian education to local children. In 1912, at a cost of $1,513.63, the Friends Church was organized and built on School Street . The charter members included Frank A. Nixon and Hannah M. Nixon, parents to future United States President Richard M. Nixon (The picture to the right is of FBYL when it was Yorba Linda Friends Church and Parsonage - circa 1918)
On Thursday, March 14, 1963 a large number of members of Fullerton First Baptist Church gathered in the sanctuary with people from the Yorba Linda area for the first service. On April 26th, 1964 a building fund of $1000 was established. Through the first year God gave many signs of His approval and blessed us both spiritually and materially.
