Our History

In 2012 the Orlando family was led to open a new church in the Hackensack area. There were many opportunities to serve as they began to minster. Working in conjuction with Calvary Temple International church in Wayne, a church with over 50 years of ministry in the tri-county area, we are an affiliated church of the CTI Network. By the grace of the Lord, doors began to open and CTI Real Life Church had it's first Saturday service on June 22, 2013 on State Street. The church has participated in various community activities private, city, and county making deeper connections to the community. In 2016 a door opened for the church to move to the South Hackensack community and into their own building where they began having Sunday services. In 2022, the Lord continued to move and provided a larger space for the work of CTI Real Life Church in Fairfield, NJ where they had their first service on Easter Sunday.
