Who We Are

Hope East Queens strives to be an authentic & diverse Christ-centered community in Bayside, NY that would grow through knowing God both intellectually & experientially, enabling us to sacrificially serve our neighbors.

Our aim is to join God in the renewal of Eastern Queens and the city of New York.  We believe that Jesus Christ left His family, to create family, for those that do not have family. It is within this context that Hope East Queens exists to be a multiethnic, multiracial, and multicultural Christian church family who seeks the well-being of the neighborhood of Bayside and the city of New York.
