Who We Are

Temple of Praise Church of God, Inc. is an inner City church with a worldwide vision determined to grow through the spreading of the gospel. We are (7) Seven years old and we are located at 253 South Williams Street within this great City of Newburgh, NY. We will continue to grow Spiritually in the Lord. We started small and we are growing. During the past 7 years under the leadership of Pastor Luklen Simpson the congregation has continued in its faithfulness and commitment in worship and support of this ministry. I have no doubt this congregation will grow and mature in God, we will bloom where we are planted.


Part of the church’s mission is to continue reaching out to the community. We presently feed the hungry, give clothes to the needy, pray for and visit the sick and encourage those that seem to have given up. In August of 2014 Pastor Simpson along with the members of the church held our first (VBS) Vacation Bible School, we experienced an attendance of 90 plus kids. Everyone was challenged in working with these children from our community. From this effort our Sunday School, and youth ministry has become a new challenge for (TOP) Temple of Praise. We will continue to carry on with the great commission until the Lord returns.


This church will continue to fellowship with other saints to build a strong community in hope of unity and readiness for the Lord’s return. We will pray for our city government that they may serve well, with this kind of leadership, a pastor with a heart for people, Temple of Praise will continue to see overwhelming church growth as the Lord continues to bless.
