History of Our Church

Since the first service of Open Door Bible Baptist Church in October of 1992, Pastor Pete Montoro has endeavored to preach the Word of God and to lead God’s people in obeying Him. As the church took its first steps, an earnest search was ongoing to find a permanent home for the believers to assemble. A vacant synagogue became the “Miracle on 35th Street” in 1996 through a series of miraculous provisions. God alone would receive the glory in the coming years as the church body grew in numbers and spiritual strength. Countless lives have been reached, hundreds of missionaries have been supported, and the sphere of influence continues to spread to other boroughs as churches are planted and others revived.
