Founded in 1984 by senior pastors Joseph and Joyce Mattera, Resurrection Church is a multi-ethnic church serving all five boroughs of New York City and the greater New York region with the message and love of Jesus Christ.
ince our church’s inception,
we have sought to be a family of families where people from all backgrounds and stations in life can experience transforming love, authentic relationships, and a new sense of purpose.
ne of the hallmarks
over our 28 year history has been the incredible number of people who have discovered a sense of calling and purpose from God which is expressed through our various ministries both inside and outside the church.
ur church is also a place
where people of all ages experience a vibrant relationship with God and with others. Resurrection Church is Consecrated, Connected, and Committed to the Cause of Jesus Christ!
To enable all people to be CONSECRATED to God, CONNECTED to the Church and COMMITTED to the cause of Christ.
To reconcile people to God through the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, caring for them and leading them into covenant with God and the local church;
To strengthen and restore families, and set apart all for the work of the ministry;
To work for the unity of the Body of Christ, in order to establish God’s kingdom on earth as it is in heaven;
To help all experience intimacy with God through prayer, worship and the creative arts;
To build Christ-centered relationships through fellowship and to prepare and place godly leadership into every facet of society for biblical justice and reformation;
To teach and demonstrate biblical principles of stewardship to break poverty so believers can prosper and effect positive change in their communities;
in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.
