About Us


St. Peter’ s MarThomaChurch was established in 1988 with 65 families. We had a rented church in the western part of Teaneck, where regular Sunday worship services were held. The church kept on growing with each year and now it has 165 registered families who gather every Sunday to worship and praise the Lord.

St. Peter’s MarThomaChurch is part of the MarThomaSyrianChurch in Kerala, India. Malankara Mar Thoma Syrian Church, traditionally beleived to have been founded in the year AD 52 by Saint Thomas- one of the 12 disciples of Jesus Christ, and known by the name of the Apostle. Saint Thomas in the language of  Kerala,India is called MAR THOMA.
