Our humble beginnings.....History of 211th Street

From this point the church we now know as Trinity Faith PCG was born. Trinity was chartered on November 18th, 1983 . Rev. Curtis Peart started the ministry at 211th street in the Bronx with a few foundational members :Sis Zelma Peart, Sis Elizabeth Charlton (deceased), Sis Violet Pitt, Sis Graham, and Bro Gerald Bailey. The brethren put funds together and rented a church on 218th street in the Bronx.

Our Mission and Vision
As we watch our world plunge into the recanting of faith, the renouncing of absolute values, the rejection of truth, and the refusal to assume responsibility, we recognize that these days we are living in are surely the "Days of Opportunity" for the Church to make a powerful impact on our world.
We at Trinity Faith Pentecostal Church of God, accept the commission given by our Lord Jesus Christ in Mark 16:15 to "Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature". We take our mission very seriously. Be assured that "Reaping the Harvest" of souls for the Kingdom is our number one priority.
Our worship service here at Trinity Faith Pentecostal Church of God is in the characteristic of Holy Ghost Joy. Our utmost desire is to exalt the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior in Spirit and in Truth.
We believe in the power of the anointed Word. We dare you to fall asleep when the Word is preached here at Trinity. Be prepared to experience the move of the Holy Spirit in our meetings.
We are moving forward in the Bronx. We encourage you to come and worship with us. Our ministry is geared towards caring for the entire family through Christian Counseling (marriage, children issues, family), Community Service (feeding the hungry, helping elders, health education and more), Home Missions, World Missions, Sunday School, Men's Fellowship, Women's Fellowship, and Youth Fellowship. Our doors are open wide to you.
Come on in!!!.
