Keystone Church is a young growing church in the heart of the Manhattan community. We strive to make Jesus Christ the Lord of everything we do. Which includes the DNA of our Sunday gathering to how we live the rest of the week.
What can you expect Sunday morning? The music to be theological true of God and His gospel, sermons that are exegetical and from the Bible, and praying that drives humility and dependance. We believe our first goal is to honor Jesus Christ through our worship, serving, and caring for one another. You can expect us to proclaim and demonstrate the love and hope of faith in Jesus in all that we do.
Keystone exists to obey God, expand the Kingdom, and change lives. Five primary strategies are central to our success:
We exist for Worship
Worship occurs every time we enter the presence of God. There are many expressions of worship including: singing, commitment, praying, hearing the word of God, giving, baptism, and the celebration of the Lord's Supper. (Matthew 4:10, John 4:23-24)
We exist to Change Lives
Discipleship is the fruit of authentic Christianity. We exist to live within the booksends of biblical discipleship. That is those in the church and those outside the church that we evangelize. For those in the church, we come along side one another seeking to see all of what Christ commands being displayed in their's and our lives. For those outside the church, we live life as sojourners; taking every opportunity to proclaim Christ and serve the lost as Christ has served us.
We exist for Service
Ministry is the hands on demonstration of Christianity to one another and to the community we serve. God has put a high priority on ministry. The Bible says, "By this shall all men know that you are my disciples-that you have love for one another." (John 13:35)
We exist for Prayer
The first thing the early church did when they assembled was pray together. Prayer is the fuel that drives the ambitious priorities of the church and the spiritual power that changes the world. Christ demonstrated the power of prayer by making it a priority of His earthly ministry. If the Church is going to be effective, it must pray. (Acts 1:14, John 17, I Peter 5:7)
