We uphold the 28 fundamental beliefs of the church, not straying from our purpose as a church and belief in the Word of God as truth.
Onward forward, never forgetting where we began
And it came to pass, on the Seventh Day of the First Month in the Year One Thousand Nine Hundred Seventy-Eight, on the Sabbath Day a small group of believers from the First Church in Montclair, Morristown church and Trinity Temple crossed over territorial lines to meet in worship for the 1st time as a group of eager Pilgrims. This gathering of 40 members was the culmination of weeks of planning and the search for a rented meeting place to worship – the Church at the Crossroads, East Orange. This first meeting was truly an occasion for gratitude, gladness and rejoicing – the idea of establishing a Branch Sabbath School in the Oranges had finally become a reality. This attitude of gratitude was evident throughout the day and also resounded in our Divine Worship Hour in song – “We’ve Come This Far By Faith…”
From a humbling beginning, this small group filled with faith, hope and love would be guided over the succeeding years by 9 lead shepherds and 5 under-shepherds. These Pastors share in the spiritual nurture, growth and development of the membership and the establishment of a permanent church home, which would become a beacon to the Oranges.
