Our church aims to help many people living in this neglected section of South Philadelphia. The idea is to buy this building in this needy neighborhood where our church members can meet people where they are and minister to them all week long. We want to provide a place to help all people: kids, teens, adults, seniors; drug addicts, alcoholics, the homeless, single parents, and those bound by Buddhism and other false religions.
The gospel will be the main focus, but we will also help people in their day to day lives. By introducing lost souls to Jesus, we will be meeting eternal needs, but the Lord Jesus often met the physical needs of those that he helped. The Bible says he "went about doing good". We too want to be like Jesus in this way.
Some programs to be run from this building will include: soul winning, discipleship, counseling, tutoring, ESL classes, youth groups, senior groups, a soup kitchen, food pantry, coat/clothes collection. Our building ill also serve as an emergency shelter.
Please, will you help us make a difference in a dark place? Let's place a light in the darkness together!
