Bible-centered, Balanced.

An Independant Baptist Church serving Staten Island, NY. 

Pastor Brian Balzamo was born and raised in New Jersey. He has worked in the medical field in the areas of Emergency medical service, patient transport, and medical supply within the Emergency room and Operating rooms.
He received his ministry training at Ambassador Baptist college in Lattimore, NC. And additional theological and practical training at Robertsville Bible church in Morganville, NJ under the direction of Pastor Ernest Brodie Jr. and Ernest Brodie's Sr. He has worked on church staffs both in Michigan and New Jersey.
Pastor Balzamo desires by the grace of God to expound and exemplify accurately the Biblical text with the Holy Spirit, guiding those to whom he ministers to, an understanding of how to live a consistent, balanced, Godly, Christian life.
"With much damage being done by shallow, forced, relational, and emotionally driven pulpits today which are steering people away from doctrine we endeavor to see lives built on sound doctrine. It is sound doctrine that teaches us how to live, doctrine always becomes practical therefore we need a dependency upon it. We cannot do without it. We want to disciple, train, teach, and encourage people to think through the Bible for themselves, and make the necessary connection between what they need to believe (sound doctrine) and how they need to live." -Pastor Balzamo   
In Pastor Balzamo's free time he enjoys cooking, reading, and catching up on world news and politics, and most of all spending time with his wife Maria and their twin boys Benjamin and Bailey.
