First Church today, has for these many years and continues still to engage in dynamic and life saving ministry because, of the leadership, by God's grace, of two great servants of God - our founder, Bishop Frank Clemmons and his successor, son, the late Bishop Ithiel Conrad Clemmons (also immediate past Prelate of COGIC's Eastern New York, First Jurisdiction). Their leadership comprised 75 years of our Church's life. And for the last ten years, God, in his infinite wisdom and grace, has seen fit to allow the founder's youngest son to take the reins of leadership of this great people. A privilege he knows that was God ordained.

It was God's grace that brought us thus far. That must forever be acknowledged. By grace is meant God doing wonderful, amazing, and miraculous things, not because of, but in spite of our feeble efforts. Grace is God manifesting his love through us, in spite of what he knows about us. Grace is God blessing us with resources from heaven even when it seems we are going through the fires of hell. By grace is meant favor from the Father regardless of our fitness.

When we look back over our shoulder and see what God has done through our founder and past leaders, not just our pastors but those faithful saints who now sleep in Him who rest from their labor; those who prayed, fasted, sacrificed and ministered in a variety of ways, we can only thank God that he has brought us this far by faith.

We are acutely aware that even after 85 years, our work of ministry has only just begun. Our best years are yet in front of us. Yes, we pause to celebrate our past.

To God Be The Glory!
