  • 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 regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for the salvation of lost and sinful people. The express mandate of the Church is to fulfill the Great Commission.

Testimonials

  • “Though there is not yet a visible unity of the Church on Earth, there is a spiritual unity that can be experienced when leaders pray together. I am active in the united prayer movement because I believe when pastors and churches come together — to be led by the Holy Spirit — there can come about revival, restoration and reformation. I have stayed involved because Concerts of Prayer is the one organization I know of where differences are laid down and only Christ is glorified.”

    Archbishop Craig Bates

    Charismatic Episcopal Church

  • “Concerts of Prayer is by far the largest, most truly diverse network of churches in Greater New York. People are getting along in the Gospel that ordinarily would never get along. It is the only network that has vastly different types of people. Greater New York needs all those kinds of churches. Concerts of Prayer is the place to start, which is why I am involved with it.”

    Dr. Timothy Keller

    Redeemer Presbyterian Church

  • “Concerts of Prayer has given me the opportunity to connect with like-minded and ‘Kingdom-minded’ pastors of various denominations and ethnicities who are praying and agreeing in prayer for Greater New York. I so appreciate the relationships that have developed, which have allowed me to continually see the bigger picture of what God is doing in this region.”

    Rev. Fred Provencher

    Cornerstone Christian Church

  • “The ‘what’ in life always divides us. COPGNY has discovered through the Holy Spirit that the ‘who’ is what unites us…the God-man Christ Jesus! COPGNY is the living expression of John 17:23, a prayer from Jesus that has now become a movement of prayer.”
