The following are the core beliefs of Hackensack Gospel Church based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.

Our History

The story of the Hackensack Gospel Church begins as the First Baptist Church starts when the city of Hackensack was only a small village. The busy streets we see today were small dirt roads. Here, a group of believers saw the need for the ministry. In faith, they heard the Lord’s calling in the community of Hackensack.
