We are a Apostolic, Pentecostal Local assembly in the Northern Connecticut Diocese of the Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ of the Apostolic Faith, Inc. (COOLJC)


Our Mission


“To evangelize the world for Jesus Christ; to equip every believer to become true Disciples of Christ; and to engage those social problems that challenge the communities we have been called to serve.”


Our Goals 


Our goals are to serve God and bring glory to Him. Certain God ordained goals are established in Scripture for the local church. These are basically set forth in the Great Commissions (Matthew 28:19‑20; Mark 16:15-16; Luke 24:46-49).
