WE ARE a church that cares about you and about introducing you to the Heavenly Father who created you. We had our first meeting in November of 1990 and have been busy making connections ever since. We have a rich heritage and history of people who have been touched by the Presence of the Lord and we purpose to reach the present generations for Christ as well.
OUR ROOTS go back to downtown Pittsburgh in 1901. During that time Bible studies and outreach were the key ingredients that founded our ministry. A caring and loving outreach touched the heart of Pittsburgh and grew into a ministry that spread over the globe. We are a New Testament style Church that is built on relationship. We believe that caring for one another is the fulfillment of the Bible and that we are supposed to live that love in a way that others can not only see but also experience.
OUR APPROACH involves contemporary worship music followed by a meaningful message that can be practically applied. We believe that we need to express our worship and love for the Lord as well as receive ministry from Him. Every person can and should find a way to acknowledge their personal faith and love for the Lord. We believe in the expression of the Arts in the church through dance, drama and music.
OUR STANDARD is the Scripture, the Bible. We believe that it is God's Word and that everything written in the Bible is relevant for us as we live each day. We believe that obedience to these Biblical principles, allows believers to overcome the obstacles of life. It is the Scripture that guides us and allow us to be consistent in our relationship with our Heavenly Father.
OUR FAITH is built on the personal experience of Salvation, where we recognize that there are things we have or haven't done which hinder our relationship with the Heavenly Father. We call those hindrances sin and recognize that the only cure for our sin is believing in Jesus Christ and his sacrifice on the Cross. We believe that Jesus' death on the cross and His Resurrection gave us power over sin and death. We also believe that if we will accept that sacrifice on our behalf and believe in Christ as our Savior and Lord, that we can personally experience a relationship with God.
OUR EXPRESSION of that living relationship is through an empowered lifestyle. We believe that the Holy Spirit can dwell in us as believers to enable us to live a life filled with strength and power. This strong power allows us to live an uncompromising life, which demonstrates an example others can see and follow. The Holy Spirit is an active part of each and every believer's life.
OUR TRUST is that as we live an empowered life for the Lord through the Holy Spirit, we demonstrate to our family friends, neighbors, coworkers and even strangers that we know the Heavenly Father personally. We declare through lifestyle that our relationship is not only in word but also in action. We speak through what we do as well as by what we say. We are convinced that as people see a living example of the Love of Christ in us that they will be persuaded to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ as well.
OUR HOPE is that we will reach our community, our cities, our state, our country, and our world with the good new about our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ. We believe that God is glorified through our lifestyle and our outreach. We also believe that our relationship with the Lord will not be limited to just our years of life on the earth but will allow us to spend eternity in the Presence of the Lord.
OUR FELLOWSHIP is key to the unity of our Church and to the success of our relationships. The Bible declares that without fellowship we weaken in our faith and are easily discouraged. We believe that life comes by pursuing the Lord TOGETHER! Come and enjoy the fellowship of our Church.
