It all started when…
When we became Christians, we were adopted by God into His family - and so in turn, we make adoption our mission. We don’t believe in staying safe and comfortable within the walls of our church. We believe that as adopted children of God, we should grow, thrive, and reproduce His glory locally and globally, so that we can share the love of Christ and the message of hope to the world. We focus our outreach strategy around four areas:
Thousands of children are waiting in the PA foster care system. As a church, we will commit to providing loving, safe homes for children to be fostered and/or adopted, and creating a church culture that welcomes all children, enabling kids to grow and thrive.
As proud community members, we will share the love and the message of Christ with our city by unleashing generosity, serving, and partnering with community organizations.
The nations are coming to the Lehigh Valley, and we want to be the first to welcome them. We will welcome immigrants in our community by teaching English, helping to resettle refugees, and getting to know our international neighbors.
ADOPT A PEOPLE GROUP
There are still 1,568 people groups that have no gospel witness, no Bible translated into their language, and no local church. As a church, we will identify one of these and send people to share the love and the message of Christ with them, with the long-term goal of planting a local church.
