The mission of the First Reformed Church of the Palisades is to embrace God's love, as revealed in Jesus Christ, and by the power of the Holy Spirit, to demonstrate our love for God and each other by:


Actively going outside the church walls to be a light to the world, boldly proclaiming salvation through Jesus Christ. 


Glorifying and honoring God through Prayer, Worship and Obedience to His Holy Bible. 


Always being committed to biblical instruction and discipleship, and to sharing God’s love and grace with all those seeking hope and healing. 


Passionately following the example of Jesus Christ in everything that we say and do. 


Empowering and calling each member to serve and to use their spiritual gifts to fulfill this mission. 






The Dana's felt God's call to teach the children of the area about the Word of God. Staying true to the call, on the first day of Sunday School back in 1863 the children were not the only ones blessed by their faithfulness. To their surprise, the parents of the children stayed to hear the message as well. Soon after they had the need to summon a missionary that was called to the Bergen County area.....

This is the home of William and Katherine Dana in Englewood, NJ. It was the first of several large estates that were built atop the Palisades in the nineteenth century.


William O. Allison, was the first mayor of Englewood, William and Katherine were their foster parents.

The First Sunday School of FRC was held on February 13, 1863, in the home of Katherine Floyd Dana and her husband William Buck Dana.

FRC is a building that is filled with God's presence and people that are there to educate and support you in your Christian life.

Side note: Donna's family has a long beautiful history here at FRC. Her mother Gloria was baptized here, Donna herself was baptized here, her two daughters Gia and Kara were baptized here, it goes on :-) Gia's two granddaughters and husband were baptized here!  Donna & Lou and their family are a true blessing to the Body of Christ!  P.S. Donna & Lou were recently blessed with their third granddaughter!

At FRC we are REAL. We make mistakes, we forgive, we have patience, we have fun and give hugs, most of all, we give LOVE! 




I feel truly blessed to be able to serve the Lord, here at FRC. A multi generational church that's such a blessing for nurturing younger parents, like me. Also great for raising up new believers.  FRC isn't only where I work, it's my church home where I come to worship! A place where all prodigal children are accepted!

We wholehearteldy believe and know that "God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life. God sent His Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world be saved through Him",  John 3:16 & 17.   We believe in Jesus Christ and the only way to the Father is through Him, as shown in John 14:6. We believe in God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, triune God. The purpose of our ministry is to show AGAPE love and to advance God's Kingdom by spreading the Gospel of Christ in anyway we feel the Spirit has called us to do so mayitbe serving the community,  the homless or the lost and broken.  FRC is not about religion, rather we are a Body of believers that put our faith, hope, love and trust in God.
