In response to Jesus Christ's love, we seek to:
Become His Disciples,
Proclaim His truth,
and Serve our neighbors,
all to the glory of God.
Become His Disciples
We model our services on the example given by the disciples as described in the New Testament Book of Acts. In addition to our Sunday services, we support a network of Fellowship Groups in Hoboken and other surrounding communities. These informal groups, which meet during the week, are a wonderful way to learn about Christianity, grow spiritually, study Scripture and work out the practical implications of faith in our personal and professional lives.
They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer…every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
Proclaim His Truth
We acknowledge the Bible as the definitive Word of God and therefore claim its authority over all decisions made within the church.
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
The Apostles’ Creed is a summation of the beliefs of the historic Christian church. This creed has served the church for the majority of its existence and we affirm it as a summation of our beliefs.
Serve Our Neighbors
We believe that God uniquely gifts every Christian to meet the needs of others. As a church, we work hard to help each other identify, grow and nurture these gifts. Our Mercy Teams and Home Fellowship Groups are designed to allow people to explore different ministries and serve our neighbors in Hoboken.
What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, "Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed," but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.
