Who We Are

Welcome to The Lamb's where no one is a stranger. In the hustle and bustle of New York City people everywhere seek a place to rest their weary souls. Frank Sinatra once sang of New York, "If I can make there I'll make it anywhere." Yes it's true city life has been known to cause feelings of anonymity and alienation, often people have said to us "we feel lost. The city is overwhelming us." Still, we believe there is Hope for New York. In response to our faith in God's love for New York and the cry of generations of God-seekers here in the city the Lamb's has established a haven for people from all walks of life. No matter what age, race, culture, or class you are welcome here. The Lamb's Church has constantly sought to transform the city through a loving fellowship with a diversity as big as New York. We are in the heart of the city because we have a heart for the city. Our vision is "to prepare a generation for spiritual, social, and cultural transformation." As you partake in worship and share in the many ministries here at the Lamb's we pray that you feel a part of the diverse Lamb's family who seek to worship Christ together. Everyone is welcomed at the Lamb's.

  • I am very confused. My family visited the Lambs Manhattan Church of the Nazarene many years ago when Rev. David Best was there. We are life-long Nazarenes and teens from our church in Salisbury, MD made several trips to NY to help at the Lamb's Center, so we decided to visit while in the city. We were given a great tour of the entire building, the center, the theatre, and got to meet several of the staff who explained the needs of the people and how the Church of the Nazarene is there to help. We were so impressed and returned the next morning for Sunday service. I just met a lady from our local Christian Shelter and was explaining to her all about the Lamb's Club in NY and the mission of our church to the street people of the city. So was very interested so I thought I would go online and print something out for her - what have I missed? The last I knew, you were in the beginning of a 5 year, 5 million dollar campaign to restore the Lamb's - now I get the impression that we don't even own it anymore. If that is true, it is so very sad. I remember the stories the staff told us, the miracles that God performed, and the pictures of the smiling faces at the Thanksgiving dinners where meals were served better than at a 5 star restaurant. What happened?
  • What do you think of when you hear the term \Cosmopolitan Christianity?\""
  • Cosmopolitan Christianity...I think of an urban, sophisticated and diverse church. \Cosmopolitan\" means comfortable or familiar with lots of different cultures
  • 9/11 prayer decision a sign of the timesI remember September 11, 2001 well. Like most people the sounds, images, and sense of loss are deeply marked in my memory. I also recall the days immediately following 9/11. The thousands of volunteers streaming in from all over the country to bring support, comfort, relief, and a simple, “We are with you.” All of this was a tribute to the nation’s ability to pull together after a tragedy. The deaths of those in the Pentagon, the World Trade Center, Stonycreek, PA, and the hijacked flights still cause me to weep and pray. As we near a decade since this tragedy many of us continually ask, “What is the best way to mourn, remember, reflect, and be a healing presence?”I bear in mind the early days after 9/11 and the abundant calls for unity independent of race, class, ethnicity, political ideology, and religious or non-religious affiliation. The call, however well-intentioned, was short-lived. In recent days, I’ve been asked to give my reflection as a Christian pastor in the Lower East Side of Manhattan to Mayor Bloomberg’s decision to exclude any faith representation at the 9/11 memorial in New York City. Frankly, I think his decision is reflective of much of the either/or thinking that this nation has devolved into after the early days of the 9/11 tragedy. In the words of Martin Luther King Jr., “In American life there is today a real crisis…”
  • Thanks very much for this, lambschurch. It's a thoughtful response on a difficult topic.
  • "We worship together, pray together, study God's Word together, cry before God's presence together, fumble together, we laugh at our broken-down building together, and we stand strong together. If that's not COMMUNITAS, then I don't know what is."
  • My heart has truly connected to The Lambs. I have been blessed with an amazing group of people that can be real in their walk of faith and love GOD above all. I can share my passion for GOD with others and continue to spread that true love. Pastors, have offered a refreshing form of leadership through love and have been an inspiration for my life. I am truly blessed.
