our story


In the late 1970s, a small number of people started a bible class in the basement of a home located in Queens Village, NY. According to the counsel of God, the Lord blessed the small gathering with their first official Sunday worship service. The inaugural worship service of Queens Church of God (QCOG) was officially held on Sunday, September 21st, 1981 at 10:30 a.m. The first service had a total of seven families. Day by day more and more people became baptized and were added to the church.


The church was recognized as outstation work by the state office of the Church of God, New York state. Our Former Pastor P. Thomas faithfully served as the senior pastor at Queens Church of God for 23 years until the year 2005.


After many years of faithful ministry in the Queens Community, Queens Church of God is now under the leadership of pastor Benjamin P. Thomas. We are a church with people from different backgrounds and cultures worshiping together in Queens, New York. We have three different Worship services geared towards the needs of the community that we are located in.


We are in a community where many cultural and ethnic groups are living in harmony, and looking to find a group of people who love and want to serve the Lord together.


Our primary worship service is in English, and we have people from every walk of life worshiping together in that service.


We have a Dedicated Hindi Worship service that is geared towards our local community. We have people who speak Hindi and wanted to sing songs and worship the Lord in their native language. We are blessed to have the opportunity to do that in QCOG.


We also have dedicated Malayalam worship services that are geared toward the Malayalam Speaking community. We are so blessed to serve our community in this season of life, where God is on the move and communities are looking to worship the Lord and glory His name.
