our name


Ephesians 2:10, “For we are his masterpiece, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”

The Greek word for masterpiece is poíēma (ποίημα). This is where we get the English word “poem”. This scripture shows that each of us, in Christ, is God’s work of art created for a good purpose. We all are a unique creation designed and fashioned by God.

If this is true about us individually, then a “gallery” is a collective display of masterpieces. As a church, we believe that corporately, we are called to display the good news of God’s redemptive grace and love to NYC and the world together.

our values

We value:
1) Gospel: (Ephesians 2:8-10)
2) Discipleship / Christian Journey: Matthew 28:16-20
3) Community : Hebrews 10: 12-25
4) Loving Your Neighbor : Luke 10:25-37
5) Diversity : Acts 8:26-40
6) Creativity (Work) : Genesis 1:26- 2:25
7) Generosity : 2 Corinthians 8:1-15

our beliefs

The Gallery Church is a non-denominational church that believes in the inerrant, infallible and inspired authority of Christian scriptures. We hold fast to the orthodox Christian beliefs as best articulated in the Apostle’s Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Lausanne Covenant.
