VISION

We believe life is more fulfilling when God is a part of it. By becoming a part of a Christian community, you can begin to feel like you are part of a home.

We are a people who love Jesus Christ, who believe that the Bible is the Word of God, and who desire to worship and serve the living God. Our mission is to glorify God by being and making disciples of Jesus Christ by sharing God’s love with all people through Word and deed.

WHO ARE WE?

We are a Christian family. We are students, teachers, nurses, managers, social workers, retail and construction workers, therapists, business owners, stay-at-home moms and dads, musicians, sports enthusiasts, we are parents, grandparents, and children. We are brought together out of our desire to have a relationship with God and a desire to know him better.

We gather together to worship God, to pray, to learn from the Bible, and to help one another become better disciples of Jesus Christ. As Christians, we desire to imitate the way that Jesus Christ lived and to tell others about the good news that He proclaimed so that they can also come to follow Jesus.

OUR BELIEFS

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
 
We believe that Jesus Christ is God the Son and took on Himself a human body when He was born of Mary.

John 1:1-14

He died on the cross in our place so that our sins against God might be forgiven if we place our trust in Him alone for our forgiveness. The result of trusting Jesus as our life’s leader is eternal spiritual life with God.
John 3:16

 This gift of eternal life cannot be earned or deserved in any way. It is given to us by God’s grace through faith in His Son.

OUR HISTORY

Alongside the Reservoir three little hamlets began expanding – Ashokan, Glenford, and West Hurley – each with a school-house and a church.  Each was a small provincial community unto itself.  Money was not plentiful and there were few cars in the area.  The communities were connected by a road of sorts, but nothing like we know Route 28 to be today.  There was little traveling and very little communication.
