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. They have continued to participate in community activies like the Main Street Fair and the Fourth of July Extravaganza. They have also developed strong relationships with the Bergen County Resource Center, the Never Alone Again Battered Women's Organization and various other private, city, and county associations. In 2016 a new door opened for the church to move to the South Hackensack community and into their own building where they began having Sunday services. There is still much work to be done in the Greater Hackensack area and they are excited to see how the Lord uses them in the community!
