Restoration’s Story

Restoration began regular Sunday services with a few faithful people and a God-sized dream. This time was both an exciting and terrifying one for us. We had no clue as to what we were doing. Yet, in the midst of all all our faults, God moved mightily. God saved people, we baptized people, we married people, we did our best to preach the gospel in all of life, and we served our community. God did all of this while we were still trying to figure out what we were doing as a faith community rooted in one of the poorest congressional districts in the nation.

We are a church committed to every member ministry and equipping the saints. We are a people filled and fueled by the Holy Spirit to see The Bronx saved, set apart, and sent out ablaze for the work of the gospel.

We are not going to move this world by criticism of it nor conformity to it, but by the combustion within it of lives ignited by the Spirit of God.
