Our History Our past, present and future...
The heart of our vision is rooted in our history. When the Community Church of Great Neck was founded in May 1914, Great Neck was a small suburban town with 4,000 residents. As the community grew and diversified over the years, so did the church.
Growth was steady and at the end of World War II, CCGN was home to over 600 families—many of them diplomats and ambassadors. When the United Nations relocated to Manhattan, CCGN’s membership began to deteriorate both in number and diversity. By the 1990’s, Sunday service was attended by an average of thirty congregants.
In September 1994, a Chinese congregation established Cornerstone Church and began renting CCGN’s building to hold their services. The relationship between the two churches blossomed and in February 1998, they merged to become one church.
Through the cooperation of both the English and Chinese congregations, CCGN began to flourish. The Gospel was preached in multiple languages and new ministries were introduced. People of all ages and nationalities once again came seeking fellowship and spiritual nourishment.
Today, we are a vibrant multi-ethnic and multi-generational church.
The Community Church of Great Neck is a non-denominational church. We hold to the foundational truths of Scripture as expressed in the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed. We also seek to be in agreement with Gospel-teaching churches all over the world. As such, we are in agreement with the Lausanne Covenant.
