Brief History of Our Church

Church of Living Grace of New Jersey (CLGNJ) is a non-denominational Christian church. Our roots can be traced back to the early days of the Cantonese ministry at Chinese Christian Church of New Jersey (CCCNJ). The core group of a few families started a Cantonese Sunday seeker class by faith in 1993. On December 11, 1994 the first Cantonese worship took place. Based on the vision of the leadership and the rapid growth of the Cantonese congregation, CCCNJ planted the Cantonese ministry out in 2001 to form a new church named “Church of Living Grace of New Jersey”. On September 2, 2001, CLGNJ had its first Sunday service in Ramada Inn at East Hanover.

In the next 12 years, our church had to move approximately once every four years. We leased different venues including Ramada Inn in East Hanover, Gibbs College in Livingston, and Morristown Beard School in Morristown. Nonetheless, the love of God has kept our church family together in unity.

By God’s grace, we purchased the Parsippany property at 800 Jefferson Road in 2011 and started our first worship service on March 31, 2013. Praise the Lord! We finally have a church building that we can call “our own”! May we best utilize this place for sharing the Gospel and glorifying God!

Growth and Vision of the Church

Because of the vision of the leadership of our mother church Chinese Christian Church of New Jersey, and the rapid growth of it’s Cantonese congregation, the entire Cantonese congregation was planted out in August 2011 and named it the Church of Living Grace of New Jersey (CLGNJ) and started our first worship service on September 2nd, 2001.

In 2011, we purchased the property at 800 Jefferson Road, Parsippany and started our first worship service on March 31st, 2013.

Statement of Faith

  • We believe that the Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired and inerrant Word of God, and is the supreme and final authority in faith and life.
  • We believe in one God eternally existing in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ, and that He is both true God and true man.
  • We believe that He is the only and sufficient mediator between God and humanity.
  • We believe in the personality of the Holy Spirit and that His ministry is to reveal Christ to people in the regeneration and sanctification of their souls.
  • We believe that man was created in the image of God, that they sinned and thereby incurred spiritual death.
  • We believe in the vicarious death of Jesus Christ for the sins of all people, but we also believe that only those who commit themselves to Jesus Christ by faith shall be forgiven of their sins and receive eternal life.
  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ, His ascension into Heaven and His personal and visible, future return to earth.
