Who We Are

Love Alive International Sanctuary of Praise – Worship Center of New York City is a non-denominational ministry of believers; followers of Christ who believe God’s grace and love reaches to the furthest margins of society, embracing all without prejudice or discrimination. It is a love seeking justice for the oppressed, disenfranchised, and marginalized. We provide a safe place where whomsoever may assemble to worship our Lord and Savior Jesus, the Christ.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to be a place where God’s people gather for the purpose of worship, praise, and fellowship. Our particular mission is to answer the call to discipleship through training and developing individuals by way of biblical teaching and spiritual guidance. This process will mature the individual’s relationship with the Lord that they may bear bountiful fruits of the Spirit.

Vision Statement

To be an “agent of change” that reaches far inside community to provide life changing tools that foster spiritual enrichment, self-love and acceptance, community advocacy and engagement, and brotherly and sisterly love to those who seek our help; to be a voice of hope and encouragement to those who are weary; and be a force for eradication of HIV and AIDS in communities of color.

Our Affiliation
