Our Church is founded upon the Word of God.
We believe that we are to follow the command
of sharing the gospel with every one.
Matthew 28 (The Great Commission)

We are comitted to spreading
the gospel of Jesus Christ
and growing in our own
spiritual maturity

We are looking to give Glory to God,
by claiming the Valley, Tamaqua, Coaldale, Lansford, Summit Hill, Nesquehoning, Jim Thorpe, Lehighton for Jesus Christ. What does this mean, basically we just want to share the love of God in this valley, and not just the love of God for us, but how we can grow in our relationship with God.

The Gates of Heaven are open to all of those who call on the name of the Lord, believeing he died for your sins, and that He was raised from the dead.

By looking at the 10 commandments God's law we see that we are all sinners.

Thou Shalt not lie (we have all lied at some point in our life)

Thou Shalt not steal

Thou Shalt not commit adultry( Christ say's if you have lusted, you have commited Adultry in your heart)

So if you stood before God right now would you be innocent or guilty. Obviously you would be found guilty. and the penalty of a Holy and Just God is Hell.  But the Good news is that Christ paid the penalty that we owed. He died for our sins, and by praying and asking Christ to come into our hearts we have eternal life. John 3:16

Do You Have Eternal Life?
We are all sinners separated from God.
"All Have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God." Rom.3:23

"For the Wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life." Rom.6:23

Christ died for our sins, that separate us from God. "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8

We are given eternal life,when we believe these things in our heart, and ask Christ to be our Personal Savior. "That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Rom.10:9

For God so loved the World that he gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him will NOT PERISH but has everlasting life. John 3:16

Are you Saved?
Have you asked Christ into your life.

You can be saved by believing and praying this prayer.
Heavenly Father, I believe that I am a sinner and that Christ died on the cross for my sins, and that He rose again from the grave. Christ Please come into my heart and be my personal Savior. I repent of my sins, and I want to live for you, who died for me.

If you said that prayer, then the Bible say's that you are saved and a Child of God. Please e-mail us and let us know, so we may help you in your relationship with the Lord.

What is our Church like?
Our Church is a very easy going, comfortable, relaxed setting. We are a family, all imperfect, but all striving to do the will of God. There is no judgement. We take things from our past, and allow God to use our mistakes to help others get through difficulties, and to Give glory to God.

Our Worship & Celebration is a mix of Contemporary praise music and  Hymns. We have a keyboard/organ player, guitar player.
Giving praise to the Lord through Worship is awesome. It acknowledges His greatness, and our need for a Savior.
