Founded in 1984 in the Sunset Park area of Brooklyn, we are 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. Since 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. One of the hallmarks over our 30+ 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. Our church is also a place where people of all ages experience a vibrant relationship with God and with others.
We fully embrace the historic Christian faith expressed in all the ecumenical creeds of the universal church (for example, the Apostles and Nicene Creed as seen below).

All that we do at Resurrection Church stems from our mission:
Renew Hope: We believe a hope in Jesus is the only true hope in this world. By pointing people’s hearts to the story of who Jesus is and what he did for the world, we believe hope will be renewed in our communities.
Restore Families: Families are essential in creating communities & nations. We believe if you want to change the world, start with the family. True restoration of broken families is found through the power of the gospel. We believe Jesus wants to restore individual families and the church at large. Join us as we create a home of believers who love one another, uplift one another and serve one another.
Serve Our Communities: A true servant’s heart is the result of meditating on the good news of Jesus. We want to serve our communities in the best way possible. This is one of the many ways people outside of the church can see a glimpse of the love, acceptance and compassion of Jesus.
