The Rehoboth Cathedral is a denominationless church located in the heart of Brooklyn, NY.
In August of 1983, the Rehoboth Fire Baptized Holiness Church of God of the Universe was founded and officially incorporated. Over time, Bible study, meetings, prayer vigils and tabletop exercises to embellish the vision God gave to Gerald Seabrooks, began to burgeon into a small congregation.
As the church grew to exceed its Wednesday night capacity in the homes and living rooms of the members, the search to find a permanent church home became a pressing and dire need. In October, 1991 Pastor Gerald Seabrooks, under the leading of the Holy Spirit, lead the fellowship of Rehoboth to the place where "....the Lord hath made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land"(Genesis 26:22).
Great and marvelous things have happened over the course of the last 20 years. The edifice, now known as Rehoboth Cathedral, is a large church and public assembly - located in the center of Brooklyn, NY. Our doors are open for the lost to receive Christ; the backslider to be reclaimed, the community hub of service provisions and a learning center.
In October 2007, Dr. Gerald Seabrooks was elevated to become bishop and prince of the Lord's church. Bishop Gerald G. Seabrooks has dedicated his life to continue the work of the Lord Jesus Christ. This Angel of the house has as his mantra, "Nothing else matters but God" because only He can transform lives. As part of his growth vision for spiritual maturation, Bishop and Senior Pastor - Gerald Seabrooks, ThD has ordained many others to become presbyters who have opened churches and become pastors. Under the auspices of Rehoboth Cathedral, Bishop Seabrooks has oversight of two churches in the southern tier. Branch churches of Rehoboth ministries are now in Ocala, Florida (Pastor Sonia Kermit) and Savannah, Georgia (Pastor Anthony Johnson).
Bishop Seabrooks is a man of unusual foresight. He has joined forces with the NYC Police Department and a retinue of Brooklyn Clergy to form a task force. While Rehoboth Cathedral undergoes an internal restructure, he (Bishop) will help save the lives of lost young men and women who criminogenicist say are culprits; murderers, gang members that are destined to places of confinement whether that be prison or their grave.
Rehoboth is a multifaceted ministry that not only deals with the spiritual but also the social and psychological needs of man.
