With a clear vision and guidance from the Holy Spirit, the Westchester Christian Assembly was formed in White Plains, New York, on January 4, 2004. This church is unique in that this is the only Malayalee Pentecostal church to date in the White Plains area. Our church began with one Marthomite family, and from this humble beginning, God had added many more souls to our congregation and is continuing to bless us.


Westchester Christian Assembly is a church that stands for full gospel doctrines. Rev. Mathew Zachariah is our pastor. Formerly a civil engineer, Pastor Zachariah completed his Biblical studies in India and in the United States. He is a graduate of Disciple Center in Tamil Nadu, IPC Gospel Center Nedumparum, Kerala, Christian Education Center in Trivandrum, Kerala, and United Christian Seminary in New York. He served the Lord in various capacities in India and in the Persian Gulf. He also served as a Bible schoolteacher at All Nations Bible School in Tamil Nadu. He was the pastor of Bethel Pentecostal Church in Mount Vernon, New York, from 1999 to 2004. His wife Esther, and three children, Jim, Jeena and Jocelyn also are active in the ministry.


Our church activities include Sunday school from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. for the children and Bible class for the adults. Our Sunday worship service is from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Cottage meetings, fasting prayers, PYPA meetings, tarry meetings and womenís fellowship meetings also are held during the week. We also are actively engaged in outreach ministry, missions, charity works and operate a cassette library at no cost for the people living in our neighborhood. We distribute CDís and audio cassettes of various gospel messages to church members and non-believers.


Bro. Sabu Cherian is our secretary and Bro. Joji Varughese is the Treasurer. Bro. K.C. Thomas is the Sunday School Headmaster and Bro. Santhosh Samuel is the PYPA director. Bro. Jim Zachariah serves as the youth representative.
