What do you offer for teenagers?
NYC are more than a Wednesday night youth group. We want to reach out to every teen throughout the week and plan activities outside of the church to facilitate relationships. We’d love for you to join our family!
On Sundays, we encourage all teenagers to join us in our main services where there is a reserved section in the auditorium for youth to sit together. The music and preaching is designed to appeal to the young people (as well as adults).

Nations Worship is a movement!

What denomination is Nations Church?
What do you believe?
We are a Jesus centered, full-gospel, evangelical, non-denominational community. Our doctrine is very similar to what you will find in the Assemblies of God or Church of God, but members of Nations Church come from all cultures, backgrounds and denominations. Even within our leadership we have those who have come from Baptist, Methodist and Pentecostal churches and everything in between. To see our statement of faith, click here.
How do you define the gospel?
Yet, salvation is not simply a get-out-of-hell-free card. Nor is it simply a theological category. It is a full immersion into the Spirit of God (1 Cor. 12:13) which results in a complete transformation of a person's life (2 Cor. 5:17). Our spirit is "born again" the moment we put our trust in Christ (John 3:3-6), by grace through faith (Eph. 2:8). For a believer, that is in the past (2 Tim. 1:9, 1 Cor. 6:11, Titus 3:4-5). Our soul is continually being saved as we are conformed to the image of Christ (2 Cor. 3:18). That is an ongoing, present reality (1 Cor. 1:18, Phil. 2:12-13, 2 Cor. 2:15). Our body will be resurrected at the return of Christ unto eternal life (that is future) (1 Thess. 4:16-17, Eph. 1:14, 1 Thess. 5:8, ). Thus, the gospel effects every part of a person: spirit, soul and body (1 Thess 5:23) - past, present and future (Rom. 5:9).
How do you reach out to the community?
Nations Church is one of the most outreach-oriented churches in the world. We have multiple teams reaching the community every week by preaching the Gospel, praying for the sick, and caring for those in need. You can find more info here.
What do you do for missions?
What is your strategy for discipleship?
At Nations Church we don’t simply have amazing Sunday services (which we do), but we are also very intentional about building meaningful Kingdom relationships and making sure that everyone is constantly growing in their relationship with God. That means we are all making disciples and we are all being discipled. At the heart of our discipleship strategy is hundreds of small groups. Our small groups meet all over the city and really throughout the entire region. They gather in homes, at coffee shops, parks and at the CfaN headquarters. Working on a semester schedule, groups begin anew each fall and spring and run for approximately twelve weeks at a time. We have groups of students, young married couples, empty nesters, preschool moms, and all kinds of shared interests. What they all have in common is a concerted emphasis on building community and spiritual development. No matter where you live, what stage of life you are in, or what you are passionate about, there is a group at Nations Church where you belong.

What kind of history do you have?
We are a new church with a long legacy. Nations Church (which launched on August 15th 2021) is the local church expression of Christ for all Nations (CfaN) which was started in 1975 by the world renowned evangelist Reinhard Bonnke. In 2008 Daniel Kolenda, Reinhard Bonnke's successor, became the President and CEO of CfaN. We have printed over 190-million copies of Evangelist Bonnke and Kolenda's books in 104 languages and we have documented more than 81-million decisions for Christ in our super-massive Gospel Crusades around the world. You will find the same culture of excellence, integrity, evangelistic zeal and love for the Lord that has characterized CfaN for more than 45 years at Nations Church. Moreover, the Nations Church family is a global family with 14 offices in 12 countries on 6 continents. For more about our story, click here.

Growth track is offered after the 11AM service every Sunday morning. To find out more, or to register for Growth Track, click here.
