We are a young church that provides a loving and relaxed environment where you are sure to be impacted by good teaching from the word of God. Also, there is genuine fellowship among the members. This is largely due to the Life Groups. Life Groups are small fellowships centered on Bible studies. They take place throughout the week in various homes. We believe that even as a church grows, the fellowship of its members should grow as well. Life Groups help ensure that no one ever feels just like a number.
Pastor Maurice Johnson started Liberty Christian Center on September 10, 1995 in the small living room of his basement apartment with zero members. After the first Sunday of twenty-plus well-wishers, Pastor Maurice preached to the “chairs” for a few weeks. Then after that, his first member showed up and soon after people started to come and the church began to grow.
By the next year, it was time to move. So, in 1996, Pastor Maurice took a leap of faith and moved Liberty Christian Center from his basement apartment to a storefront in the same vicinity. As more people came, it quickly became apparent that another move was needed. So, once more, the church moved, this time outside of Hollis, NY and into a location in Laurelton, NY. The church continued to grow and after some reflective thought, Pastor Maurice decided to rename the church “Winners Church.” Today, Winners Church is a growing, multi-cultural church.
