In October of 2009, a youth group passionate for God in New York City saw an Atheist advertisement campaign in their subway system which stated, “A Million New Yorkers Are Good Without God. Are You? They were so stirred up by this, that they went to their Youth Pastor who then went to his network of Youth Pastors/leaders to ask, “What are we, as the body of Christ going to do about this?”. They prayed and decided to take action and have Youth Ministries from all around the 5 boroughs hold a prayer walk wearing a simple T-shirt which stated “God Belongs in My City“. In less than 2 weeks, on November 14th, 2009, over 1,500 youth walked from North and South of Manhattan meeting at Times Square and Grand Central Station making a bold statement that made history in the city and now the nation. Will your city be next?
We are the voice of this generation making the call to the people of God to rise up and proclaim the name that is above all names, Jesus Christ. We are not ashamed of the Gospel We will answer the call to act now We will share the Gospel of Salvation to the ends of the world. We will start with our city.
God Belongs In My City is our declaration of Faith. As Christ came and changed the world, we as Christians ought to impact our city now. There is a call to fearlessly rise up as one and not collapse under the waves of this world. We are commissioned to carry forth the Gospel of Salvation!
