TGC Chelsea is a non-denominational church that believes in the authority of the Christian Scriptures for our life and practice. We hold to the essential orthodox Christian beliefs as best expressed in the Apostles Creed and the Evangelical Statement of Faith. Our mission is to help New Yorkers grow in love by practicing the way of Jesus for the good of our city.
Evangelical Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons:
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe in God, the Father Almighty, the Creator of heaven and earth,
And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord:
Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell.
The third day He arose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic (universal) church, the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.
Our vision is to join God in the renewal of all things, and for us this begins in our lives and neighborhood. It means seeing New Yorkers transformed into passionately engaged followers of Jesus. We long for people not just to attend church, but to be the church, creating an alternative culture rooted God's principles, here in the city. We recognize that God has placed within each of us gifts, passions and abilities to build the church and help bring the kingdom of heaven on earth.
We would love to help you come to deeply know God and live a life of faith in Him, find your place in this community, and see the vision of your life released. We are so glad you’ve come to visit and want to serve you in any way we can.
