A Bible-Open Faith Community
All Nations Church is a Bible-believing body. We hold the Old and New Testaments to be the inspiredword of Godand “useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16). On Sundays the pastor preaches devotional sermons based on one or more of the appointed readings in the Sunday lectionary of the Anglican Book of Common Prayer. Whether to children in our Christian school, adults in healing retreats, or elderly residents in local nursing homes, the approach is always to open the Scriptures, exploring the questions raised and the answers provided for Christian living.
At All Nations Church we enjoy one another’s company, andwe care for one another in keeping with the biblical exhortation to “Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another” (Romans 12:15-16). It brings us great joy to share a meal and fellowship together as a family.
All Nations Church believes in the present day manifestation of gifts of the Spirit, including Jesus Christ’s ongoing ministry of healing. We have ministers trained in confessional healing practices. We participate in healing conferences and conduct our own healing retreats, all with the full expectation that when we anoint with oil and lay on hands, God can and will bring healing to those who ask in faith.
All Nations Christian Academy
All Nations Christian Academy is an outreach ministry of All Nations Church. By the grace of God the school has been in operation since 2007 and continues to offer a great education to elementary school aged children of Greater New Haven, K - 4th grade.
