Sanctuary Manhattan logo



Sanctuary's mission is to make disciples who look and live more like Jesus everyday and lead others to do the same.

The Foundation for this pursuit is a faith in the eternal God who knows us intimately, who gave everything as a sacrifice to redeem us back to himself and who has come to dwell within each of our hearts as a deposit of things to come. This is the Christian faith and this is what leads us. To read more about our Faith and Beliefs check out this doc:

Statement of Faith and Belief

Together, as a unified church, we pursue this mission through a three-fold framework:

Dynamic Spiritual Growth (UP)

Authentic Christian Community (IN)

Everyday Missional Living (OUT)
