In 1985, after a very clear leading from the Holy Spirit, Tony and Annette Cestone answered to the call of God to begin a local church in Westchester County, New York. On October 5, they held their first church service as Christ Alive Ministries in their home in Ossining. The Lord blessed their devotion, faithfulness and labor as He confirmed their work with signs following. After meeting in several locations, in 1991 Christ Alive Ministries found their home location at 600 Secor Road, Hartsdale, New York.
For over 30 years, Christ Alive Ministries has been a church family, a fellowship of believers, a refuge for those needing comfort and counseling, a Bible training center, and missions outreach to hundreds of men, women and children from and to many parts of the world.
Pastors Tony and Annette have dedicated their lives to teaching the uncompromised Word of God, training and equipping the saints to do the work of the ministry while bringing healing and hope to those seeking the truth through the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
Christ Alive Church is a place where Jesus Christ is Lord and the Presence of God is manifested in a congregation of both seekers and believers alike. The gifts of the Holy Spirit are evident in an atmosphere of praise, worship and liberty. The Word of God is taught to every age level through preaching, teaching, Bible studies, special classes, Sunday School and VBS.
The emphasis of Christ Alive Ministries is to encourage all people to know Jesus Christ as both Savior and Lord, to grow in His grace, to know Him intimately and to become Christ-like in every area of one’s life.
Let us take this opportune moment to pray, Beloved, that “you would stand perfect and complete in all the will of God. May the Word of Christ dwell richly within you. May you become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Christ and, in the same way, come to know the power out flowing from His resurrection as well as share in His sufferings, as to be continually transformed in spirit into His likeness.”
(Col. 4:12; Philp. 3:8-10)
The Christ Alive Church family welcomes you to come and see with an open heart. Perhaps the Lord would have you become a part of what the Holy Spirit is doing in our midst, in our lives, and for His kingdom. It is time to find your place, serve the Lord your God, and fulfill your destiny in Him!
