Times Square Church

November 29, 2008 - NY Bus Tour

It was so cold when we reached New York in the morning. While walking along Broadway St., we happened to pass by Times Square Church. We got curious so we went inside to check it. We were greeted by a guy (a caretaker I guess) and my husband started asking about the church, building, pastors, etc... It was actually an opera house converted to a church. The artistic designs are still there so at a first glance, you won't think it's a church.

The history of this church is much more heart warming for me. It started all from Pastor David Wilkerson when he saw many lost souls wandering on the 42nd street of New York...pimps, drug addicts, pushers, prostitutes, etc. Being a man of God, his heart broke of what he saw, so that he looked up to God, wept and prayed about how can he help these lost souls get back to life. The answer was given...the Times Square Church was up.

Now, the church has over 8,000 people representing more than 100 different nationalities serving and praising God. It's an interdominational church so all people are welcome :). What a glorious start of the day for us. We felt we've been blessed to know one awesome place of worship and the house of God at the midst of a busy city. Nothing is impossible for God!
