What & Where
Church at Bergen gathers on Sundays at 10:00am at the Double Tree Hotel in Mahwah, NJ on Route 17 South. We are all about Jesus and His message. We teach the bible and desire to be a place of growing Christians, doubters, skeptics and learners. All in all, the atmosphere is casual, reflective, and open to all. Come join us.
We preach Jesus. The centrality of Jesus is in everything that we say from the front on Sunday. While you will learn some things through the preaching on how life is meant to operate, your purpose, how to serve your spouse in your marriage, parent your children, or work as an act of worship—that’s not really the point. Because without Jesus, nothing matters. It’s because of Jesus that we can rightly live and interact with others and Himself the ways God intended. Only Jesus can make a marriage better, and true fulfillment is only found in Jesus. This means we teach from the Bible, because the Bible is all about Jesus. Our primary diet of teaching is expository, which means we go through whole books of the Bible, verse by verse, to show you what the whole Bible teaches and how it relates to Jesus.
The sermons are about 45-50 minutes. Why do we do this? Because the Bible tells us that faith comes by hearing the word of God, the Bible. So we want to preach as much of it as we can. All our sermons are online, so you can check out all this by giving a listen yourself.
We not only worship Jesus through hearing His Word, but we worship Jesus through singing and declaring with our mouths the realities and truths that we learn about Him. The music we sing in worship to God is always about Jesus. At Church at Bergen, we sing an ecclectic collection of songs, incorporating modern, vintage and fresh takes on old hymns. Music is part of the way in which we prepare our hearts and minds to hear the word and to respond to that word.
As part of our worship, we also take communion together. We do this as a way of remembering the centrality of Jesus in all things.
Each Sunday, your child will learn the Bible and how it relates to Jesus in an age-appropriate way. The lessons are fun and approachable and taught by committed volunteers who serve Jesus by serving you and your kids. Ultimately, the goal of BergenKIDS is to get kids excited about Jesus and to get families talking about Jesus together throughout the week.
