Who We Are

We are a spiritual healthy church transforming our community and reaching the global neighborhood through the preaching and teaching of the gospel, the love and power of  the resurrected Jesus Christ.  We are concerned about the total person – spiritual and natural development, and want others to join in the fellowship to enjoy the benefits of following Jesus. It is our mission to witness for the Lord, inviting them to Jesus Christ, and depend on the Holy Spirit to help us to transform the neighborhood that reflect more of God.


For the last fifty-two years the Pentecostal Church of God has been a beacon of light to our neighbors in the Flatbush community and beyond. 

Following the example of Jesus and the first century church tradition of going to where the people are in need of salvation, the PCOG church family in the twenty first century has gone into the community to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. The church grew out of a love for witnessing for the Lord in the community and among our neighbors. Every week the church family would go to the streets handing out flyers and tracts to invite others to Jesus Christ and to church.

In the seventies and eighties the church ministered to patients in the Rehabilitation Center and the psychiatric unit of Kings County Hospital Center, Brooklyn, NY.  In addition, we had a prison ministry to inmates and correction officers at the Brooklyn House of Detention. This effort was beneficial to the members of the church.

Over the past five decades we have contributed to the needs of people overseas regularly and have been generous to countries and ministries following catastrophic storms.


Our Pastor, Bishop Edward J. Williams, is devoted to the Lord and the Lord’s church through pastoral ministry.

His vision for the fellowship includes:

  • growing in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ through biblical preaching and teaching,
  • growing through prayer as a means of developing a deeper devotion with the Lord,
  • growing in spreading the good news of Jesus Christ to the community and globe,
  • growing to serve ministries that will mature and equip the body of Christ for                      discipleship.

PCOG is a church where everyone is somebody and no one is a stranger. We are committed to welcoming all into the family of God and ensuring that followers of Jesus Christ are given an opportunity to grow as people and Christians.
