3. What We Believe

Our Vision

We are a local expression of God’s global church.  We strive to live for God solely and love like God completely.  We are a community of believers who worship God with passion and encourage one another with acts of love and service.  


We believe that we accomplish far more together then we ever could separately.  

Because of this, we are also called to be a “Kingdom Minded” ministry working in cooperation with other churches and ministries in the Greater NYC area.


Our Mission

Worship & Intercession

Worship…to be a church who recognizes our total dependence on God and is continually before His throne in celebratory praise and deep intimate worship.

Intercession…to be a church that prays with confidence, continually, not out of ritual but out of relationship.



Teaching…to be a church that teaches the Word of God as our foundation for everything we do and say with clarity and understanding.

Discipleship…to be a church that transitions converts to disciples. To prepare God’s people for works of service causing the Body of Christ to grow stronger.

Equipping…to be a church that will equip believers to use their gifts to win the lost and advance the Kingdom of God.

Missions…to be a church that sends and supports career missionaries that minister around the block or around the world.



Unity…to be a church that joins hands with other churches and ministries in equipping the saints. That we would answer the call of Jesus in John 17:22 (that they may be one as We are one) understanding that God’s Kingdom is much bigger than one church and that it will take a true partnership between every church and ministry working together to build the Kingdom of God on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Community Care…reaching out locally to the poor, lonely, rejected, and brokenhearted, through acts of love and service.  Partnering with local care ministries to bring the love of God to people in need using practical means.

Body Life…growing in love, sacrifice, and serving one another in our local congregation.

3. What We Believe

Core Beliefs


  • We believe that only the sixty-six books of the Bible are the inspired, and therefore inerrant, Word of God.  The Bible is the final authority for all we believe and how we are to live.


  • We believe that the one true God exists eternally in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit- and that these, being one God, are equal in deity, power and glory.


  • We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and fully man, that He was conceived and born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, and offered Himself as a substitutionary sacrifice for sinners.  By the blood of His cross, He obtained for us eternal redemption, the forgiveness of sins and life everlasting.  He was raised bodily on the third day and ascended to the right hand of the Father, there to make intercession for the saints.


  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ baptizes believers in the Holy Spirit, in whom we are also sealed for the day of redemption.  The Holy Spirit regenerates, forever indwells, and graciously equips the Christian for godly living and service.  Subsequent to conversion, the Spirit desires to fill, empower and anoint believers for ministry and witness.  We also believe that signs and wonders, as well as all the gifts of the Spirit described in the New Testament, are operative today and are designed to testify to the presence of the Kingdom and to empower and edify the Church to fulfill its calling and mission.


  • We believe that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.  No ordinance, ritual, work of any other activity on the part of man is required or accepted in order to be saved.


  • We believe that the Church is God’s primary instrument through which He is fulfilling His redemptive purposes in the earth.  We also affirm the priesthood of all believers and the importance of every Christian being joined with and actively involved in a local community of the saints.  We believe that women, no less than men, are called and gifted to proclaim the Gospel and do all the works of the Kingdom.


  • We believe that God has called the Church to preach the Gospel to all nations, and especially to remember the poor and to minister to their needs through sacrificial giving and practical service.  This ministry is an expression of the heart of the Lord Jesus Christ and is an essential part of the Kingdom of God.
