OUR STORY

Evangelical Church of God in New York (ECOG) was established in 1962 by Rev. Pedro Toledo and his wife Rev. Hilda Toledo.  The first church was founded in Manhattan and we currently have churches in New York, New Jersey, Syracuse, Connecticut, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Mexico and Honduras.  The ECOG Bronx church was pastored by Rev. Francisco Rivera and Carmen Rivera from 1973 to 2009, a total of 36 consecutive years.  When they retired from pastoring, the Lord called their son, Rev. Frank Rivera, Jr. to lead the Bronx church.  At present, ECOG Bronx is a loved filled church with vibrant members who have hearts for God and a spirit of service.  Whatever you’re looking for, ECOG Bronx is a church for the entire family.
