Our Church

Who We Are

First Church, is located in Rockland County just across the Tappan Zee Bridge, in Nyack, New York. We are a multi-generational Christian church and have been serving the Lord by initiating youth ministries and other church activities, in different communities, since 1995. As a religious organization, it is our duty to make disciples by opening their eyes to the wonders of His love.

Our church is united in bringing back people's hope and faith in God. We want people to participate in our ministries to let them experience how the power of the Lord can change them. Our goal is to enlighten the lives of those who are in the dark through Christ.  We are committed to making individuals understand what spiritual renewal is all about.

Mission Statement

Our mission, with God's help, is to transform/change lives through the word of God. Stated another way, we simply want to get your mind right, while enriching your relationship with God, family and your community.


IMAGINE...Walking into a church where it doesn't matter where you've been or what you've done. All that anyone cares about is where your life is now headed. IMAGINE...Worshipping without judgment, surrounded by people who are committed to your growth and well being, who will pray for you, encourage you, and equip you with the tools you need to know and become who God created you to be. IMAGINE...Walking into a room where life is best experienced together. IMAGINE...A place where the focus is on sharing the amazing love of God, that is radically transforming lives and our community. First Church of Nyack is that place.


Our purpose is to provide the environment for all to worship without judgment of their past and present, while supporting you as you develop into who God created you to be. We strive to produce committed disciples of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and hope that through your worship experience you will be encouraged and inspired to bring others.

Our Statement of Faith – What We Believe

We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible written Word of God.

We believe that there is only One God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and, God the Holy Spirit.

We believe in the blessed Hope, which is the rapture of the Church of God, which is in Christ, at His return.

We believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious Blood of Jesus Christ.

We believe that regeneration by the Holy Ghost is absolutely essential for personal salvation.

We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the Cross provides healing for the human body in answer to believing prayer.

We believe that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it.

We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy and separated life in the present world.
