Christ Church is a non-denominational Christian congregation comprised of people from diverse racial, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds. We are a community minded congregation with a global sensitivity. Christ Church exists to unite people to God and people to people. The Lord continues to be a source of transformation for every person who comes through our doors.

Christ Church is located on a 107-acre campus in Rockaway, New Jersey which was renovated and opened for worship in 2009; complimenting our metropolitan cathedral in Montclair.
