The Little House Church in BrooklYn

 

We are ASBC, the little house church in Brooklyn with a big heart, a sense of humor, and a passion for the sacred, the arts, and social justice. A multi-faith community, we are connected to the Unitarian Universalist Association, the United Church of Christ, and the Disciples of Christ.

 

“I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” (Psalm 139)

 

We take God’s love seriously and ALL ARE WELCOME, no matter your race, ethnicity, religious beliefs, difference in ability, gender identification or non-identification, or sexual orientation.  

 

"God is Still Speaking,” 

 

Rooted in the Hebrew scriptures and the teachings of Jesus, we incorporate other faith traditions and the wisdom of prophetic voices from psychology, science, Womanist and Black Liberation Theology, Native American and earth centered spirituality. Experience ASBC’s blessed "Passing of the Peace" and our heartfelt sharing of joys and concerns followed by a pastoral prayer. 

 

“The only thing better than singing
is more singing.” (Ella Fitzgerald)

 

And we love to sing! We enrich worship through musical diversity from traditional hymns and spirituals to blues, jazz, gospel, classical and contemporary music led by our own artists and professional guests.

 

“We come from the creator with creativity.” (Maya Angelou)

 

We honor the arts—music, painting, writing, photography, and film—as integral to spiritual expression and nourishment. Once a month, we host Movie Night. Other activities include a twice monthly Bible Study and a Game Night at a local café, as well as sponsored trips to museums, concerts and exhibits.

  Sunday  July 21st, 2024
  Rev. Dr. Boon Lin-Ngeo

"Who are you?"

"Who are you? Who am I ? Unless we realize who we are, we can never have peace, we are not free. We are always enslaved by what people think about us and we live in fear because we are so afraid other people would not like us. Life is a matter of choice, every choice we make, makes us! And a lot of times, we make choices based on the belief of who we are. Thus, it is of paramount importance for us to really realize who we are. (B.L.N.)"

Reverend. Dr. Boon Lin Ngeo was born and raised in Malaysia. He was an award-winning journalist before he came to the United States in 1997. He currently teaches at Hunter College- CUNY. He has published extensively in the Chinese language since 1999, and is the author of more than 40 books. He is the first openly gay minister in his native country Malaysia, and the first openly gay minister who holds a doctoral degree in theology in Asia. Rev. Dr. Boon is one of the most sought-after speakers in LGBTI Chinese communities in Asia, such as China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Malaysia. He is instrumental in building many LGBTI Christian fellowships and churches in Asia. His activism in Asia has been reported by CNN and the New York Times.
