Today Forest Hills and its immediate surrounding communities are home to peoples from 117 different nations (2000 Census). It has become the community to live in and raise a family in for people from the four corners of the globe.
One of Ascension’s core values is promoting and building our community based in Central Queens. We endeavor to be a resource and support for the families and businesses in our neighborhood, desiring our community to continue to flourish in every way.
Our church community is Christ-centered, gospel-driven, and person-oriented through and through. Our union with Christ includes our union with one another. This means that the gospel of Christ is incarnated through and in the community of God’s people. Renewed image-bearers “image” the love of the Triune God in community for one another and a watching world. Happily, this creates a great opportunity to reach out in love to troubled, isolated and disassociated New Yorkers, who, because of the image of God in them, desperately long and yearn for connection. This means that we place a high premium on truth, authenticity, transparency, love, and relationships.
