CHURCHES IN THE AREA
Though HCFA is an organization that connects you with other Christian students on campus, we do not conduct Sunday services nor do we believe that we can be a sufficient substitute for a church. Listed below are just a few of the many great churches you can check out in the Greater Boston Area. We encourage you to explore and find a community in which you can develop your faith and to which you can contribute.
"Aletheia is more than just a meeting to attend. It’s a diverse, growing spiritual family to be a part of, centered on the person and mission of Jesus Christ. We’re actively working to build a great city, renewed by the truth, grace, and changing power of the gospel. We would love to see you on a Sunday at 9:25am and 11am at the Cambridge Y, or Sunday night at 5:30 in Downtown Boston."
Boston Chinese Evangelical Church (BCEC)
“We hereby covenant and engage ... to give up ourselves unto the Lord ... to unite together into one body for the public worship of God, and the mutual edification one of another in the fellowship of the Lord Jesus: exhorting, reproving, comforting and watching over each other, for mutual edification; looking for that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of ... our Savior Jesus ...” (from the Articles of Faith and Government, adopted on Feb. 23, 1809)
Citylife Presbyterian Church
"Citylife Church seeks to expand God’s Kingdom in the city of Boston and beyond. We hope to bring renewal in every sphere of life by the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our desire is to foster a community of love that reaches out with the historic Christian truths of the Gospel. We welcome skeptics, seekers, and those who share the church’s vision to be a Gospel-oriented, outwardly-faced community of God’s grace."
"Grace Chapel is a non-denominational, multicultural church that began in 1948, when a few families in Lexington, Massachusetts started weekly meetings in their homes for a time of worship, Bible study, and prayer. Since incorporating in 1956, the Grace Chapel congregation has steadily grown from a few dozen people in rented space in Lexington to over 4,000 people attending Sunday services and midweek ministries at our four campuses: Lexington, Wilmington, Watertown, and East Lexington."
"Hilltop Church was born out of a prayer meeting that began in 2006. For the past seven years we have been praying for another Great Awakening to sweep Boston, New England, and the college campuses of the North East."
"Pentecostal Tabernacle is a Bible-believing church that exists to restore lives broken by the consequences of sin to the place where these very same lives bring glory to God."
"College is a brief but fantastically important period of your life. Our vision is for Symphony Church to be a community where you can find a spiritual home for your college years (and hopefully beyond). We want to build an authentic, grace filled, scripture based, prayer driven, spirit empowered church community that exists right on your campus."
Antioch Baptist Church
"At Antioch Baptist, we work to build up God’s church based on biblical models: We view the church as a body, in which all members are connected with each other and to God through Christ, the head. And we regard the church as the family of God, in which all members are related to each other and to God the Father through the blood of Jesus Christ. This ideal of unity and love can become reality when we allow our faith in Jesus Christ to permeate all areas of our lives, from home to school to work."
Cambridge Community Fellowship Church (CCFC)
"Cambridge Community Fellowship Church (CCFC) is an urban church that strives to honor God by living as a body of Christ in Cambridge by loving God, His Church, and our community. We seek to preach and teach the gospel and to encourage the church to live out a life in accordance with Scripture. As individuals and as a church, we seek to pour out our lives for the city, that God may be known in Cambridge, Boston, and all the earth."
Community of Fatih Christian Fellowship (CFCF)
"CFCF is part of the Antioch International Movement of Churches based in Waco, Texas. We are a movement of churches connected by relationship and a desire to love God, love one another and love those who do not know Jesus through the power and work of the Holy Spirit. The Antioch Movement, which began more than 20 years ago, is dedicated to seeing the local church reproduce the Kingdom of God through evangelism and discipleship throughout the United States and around the world."
"We are a member of the Evangelical Covenant Church. The Evangelical Covenant Church seeks to form and nurture communities that are deeply committed to Jesus Christ and passionately engaged in Christ’s mission in the world."
Park Street Church
" 'We hereby covenant and engage ... to give up ourselves unto the Lord ... to unite together into one body for the public worship of God, and the mutual edification one of another in the fellowship of the Lord Jesus: exhorting, reproving, comforting and watching over each other, for mutual edification; looking for that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of ... our Savior Jesus ...' (from the Articles of Faith and Government, adopted on Feb. 23, 1809)"
St. Paul Parish
"Welcome to historic St. Paul Catholic Church in Harvard Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts. Our parish family extends past Harvard Square and the city of Boston to the suburbs and beyond! Music has always been integral to worship at St. Paul’s, and the Saint Paul’s Choir School, the only Catholic boys’ choir school in America, provides for the church’s Choir of boys and men. This rare traditional Choir sings great Catholic music in service to the liturgy at the 11:00 a.m. Mass each Sunday of the school term, while one of the boys’ Choirs sings at the 12:10 p.m. Mass Tuesday through Friday, the Saturday 5:00 p.m. Vigil Mass, and Vespers at 5:15 p.m. each Wednesday. The third component of St. Paul Parish is the Harvard Catholic Center, an active chaplaincy to undergraduates and graduate and professional students at Harvard University and other academic institutions in the area. A special Mass for students is held Sunday evenings at 5 p.m., and other liturgies are celebrated at the various Harvard graduate schools. Please see the links to Harvard Catholic websites. I invite you to visit St. Paul’s when you are in the Cambridge area (a map is available) and to become part of our community of believers. Our website includes a parish calendar that will let you know of the various events taking place at St. Paul Parish."
