“Just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
“so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”
What does your church believe about Scripture?
We believe that the Bible is God's word and that it provides everything that we need in order to know God and His desire for our lives.
What do you believe the Scriptures teach about God?
We believe that there is one holy, triune God who has created everything that exists. Because mankind is trapped under the curse of sin, our heavenly Father planned from all eternity to send His Son, Jesus Christ, to be born of a virgin, live a perfect life, and die for our sins on the cross. Jesus was raised from the dead and now sits enthroned in heaven, upholding all things by His word, but He has sent the Holy Spirit to call people to faith in God and give us strength to persevere in this broken world. We eagerly wait for the day in which Christ will return, ushering in the new heavens and the new earth, when all of His followers from every corner of the earth will live in perfect peace and holiness in the presence of our God.
Do you hold to any creeds or confessions?
We affirm the historic creeds of the church, the Westminster Confession of Faith, Shorter Catechism, and Larger Catechism. You may also refer to our statement of faith and the official website of the PCA.
What is the vision of your church?
Filled to overflowing by the love of Christ, we will build a healthy church, committing the resources God has given us to advance Christ's kingdom, flooding Willow Grove and the surrounding communities with the gospel of grace and reconciliation.
