Who We Are

Welcome to Peniel Community Church! We praise God of Immanuel who is always present with us and is leading our lives. We pray that the grace and peace of the Lord be with everyone who visits our Peniel Church and our website.

Peniel Community Church started from the New York Immanuel Community Church with multicultural mission strategy to find truth in the midst of today’s secularized city, to preach the Word of Jesus Christ and His life to those who yearn for the Kingdom of God and to carry the great commission of proclaim the gospel to advance the Kingdom of God.

Peniel Community Church desires to proclaim Jesus Christ who redeemed our sin by lowering Himself and even dying on the cross and bring people back to the Lord and free those who are suffering in this world where truth has faded its light.

Please have a look around the rest of this website to know a little more about Peniel, although we encourage you to visit and see for yourself what God is doing at our church!

Our Vision

Located in DC, we wish to be instrumental in the fulfillment of God’s dream, the universal vision of building the body of Christ. We seek the abundant diversity formed by people from various backgrounds harmoniously united in the truth.

The word preached in different languages is delivered through acknowledged ministers to help people deeply digest the truth and experience individual transfiguration.

We are fully committing to fulfilling the great commission that the Lord Jesus Christ appointed His children to follow. As true disciples of Christ, we not only listen to the Word of God, but we also follow the footsteps of Christ in feeding the lost sheep and dying so that many other may live in Christ. Therefore, we wish to spread the good news of the Gospel to the world, neighborhood, and street.

We are continually growing and preparing to set up multiple sites per city. We believe that in order to share the joy of salvation that comes through Jesus Christ, we must consider the most strategic method in reaching hundreds and thousands of people. Church planting allows our congregation to put the Word into practice and reach the masses with the message of the Gospel. In this way, we can truly heal the wounded, influence lives, and change the world with the knowledge of Christ.

The Word of God gives us true life and a sense of satisfaction we could never find in the secular world. Through our gender-based, age-based, and interest-based ministries there is a place where God can use every person in investing their talents and life for the Kingdom of God. We are committed to sharing fellowship, sharing life, and sharing the joy of the Lord through our Christ-centered churches no matter the location.

We welcome those who are willing to serve with the gifts and skills innately blessed by God. We seek to branch out the types of work related to faith, varying the opportunities of revealing and making the most of all talents, ultimately to serve His Kingdom.

Faith Statement

We believe…

in the Holy Scriptures as originally given by God, divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy; and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct…

One God , eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit…

Our Lord Jesus Christ , God manifest in the flesh, His virgin birth, His sinless human life, His divine miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, His mediatorial work, and His Personal return in power and glory…

The Salvation of lost and sinful man through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ by faith apart from works, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit…

The Holy Spirit , by whose indwelling the believer is enabled to live a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ…

The Unity of the Spirit of all true believers, the Church, the Body of Christ…

The Resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

Membership

Understanding that Christ “loved the church and gave himself up for her” (Ephesians 5:25), Gratia retains formal membership. We acknowledge formal membership as an important step in demonstrating our commitment to Jesus Christ.

All believers are members of the body of Christ and local church membership is the public acknowledgment of this spiritual reality. As followers of Christ, we are all “members of the household of God” (Ephesians 2:19), and it is our duty to play our roles as a member of His body. We become one healthy body when each member does its part well (1 Corinthians 12:20).

Peniel Community Church holds its members in high regard—they are expected to proclaim and reveal the gospel in anywhere their life happens. In a multi-cultural city, God, in his sovereignty, placed us among these people with a purpose. We pray to be faithful managers of the House of God.
