What To Expect

Join Us On Sundays

We'd love to have you join us on a Sunday for one of our worship gatherings. Among a community of people and authentic friendships, passionate worship, inspiring preaching, and a fun ministry for children up to 5th grade; you can be confident that Meta Church has something for you!

Going to any church for the first time, or the 100th time isn't easy, but we know you'll feel welcome, encouraged, and inspired at Meta Church.

Conveniently located on the border of the Upper East Side and East Harlem, we meet every Sunday at 11am in the historic P.S. 109 Building (also known as The ArtSpace) located on E. 99th St. between 2nd and 3rd Avenues.

What You’ll Experience

From the moment you walk in, our desire for you is to encounter an indescribable God in a radically transformative way!

At Meta, you’ll find people who care about where you’ve come from, who will meet you where you are, and who will join you on the journey God wants to take you on.

You’ll participate in a worship experience filled with energetic and passionate music, engaging and relevant teaching for everyday life, as well as authentic and meaningful connection with God and other people.

We want you to walk away with a belief and hope that God has destined you with incredible purpose and significance that’s unlocked through the transformative power of Jesus.

And lastly, you’ll know there is a group of people willing to journey forward with you in this crazy adventure called life.

Our Beliefs

Jesus

Jesus Christ is completely human and, at the same time, completely God. He is God’s only plan for bringing humanity back into a right relationship with God. He lived a perfect life, so that He could be a perfect sacrifice by dying on a cross. He defeated death in His resurrection so that we can have abundant life.

God

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. God is loving, compassionate, and faithful to His people and His promises.

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is present in the world to make humanity aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with comfort, the power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He fills and empowers every believer with spiritual gifts when they are saved to fulfill their God-given calling.

You (Humanity)

You are made in the image of God. You are the supreme object of God’s creation and love. Although you have tremendous potential for good, you are marred by an attitude of disobedience towards God called “sin.” This attitude separates you from God until the relationship is restored through a personal commitment to Jesus Christ.

Salvation

Salvation is God's free gift to us, but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus’ death and resurrection as God's offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin's penalty. When we turn to Jesus in faith, we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment anyone receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.

Eternity

You were created to exist forever. We believe that forever is spent in one of two places: in union with God because of His forgiveness and salvation or eternally separated from God because of sin. When you die, you will either spend eternity with God or apart from God.

Church

The Church is a community of believers unified through faith in Jesus Christ. The Church is committed to living out the teachings of Jesus, and it seeks to bring the Gospel to the world. The Church works together in love and unity, intent on the ultimate purpose of revealing God to the world and glorifying Jesus Christ.

The Bible

The Bible is God’s Word to all people. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because it was inspired by God, we believe the Bible is truth and is completely relevant to our daily lives.
