As part of our larger network, Resurrection Williamsburg has carefully sought to organize our ministries so that we can work together, by the power of the Spirit, to effect great change in Brooklyn, and specifically in our neighborhood of Williamsburg. To call the people of the city to be stewards of their power and gifts for the honor of Christ and the benefit of urban communities, Resurrection Williamsburg challenges Christians of the city not only to live within the city, but to serve.
Resurrection Williamsburg began in May 2005 as a community united by the promises that God has made to us and kept in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. Our life together is one of worship, service and joyful celebration. We partner with ministries throughout the borough, ranging from homeless shelters, local schools and community gardens, and around the world. Along with the rest of our network, Resurrection Williamsburg is also active in new church development, globally, nationally, and locally.
While Resurrection Williamsburg is still fairly new, it is not new in its beliefs and practice. Resurrection Williamsburg wholeheartedly embraces the historic Christian faith expressed in all the ecumenical creeds of the universal church (e.g., the Apostles and Nicene Creeds). It is also committed to the theological heritage of the Protestant Reformation as a member church of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church and the Reformed Communion, and expressed in the Westminster Confession of Faith.
