We also have a preschool (ages 2-4) class and a nursery available for the youngest children. Once a month we have The Vision:F3: Faith, Family, Fun, a Family Worship Service for all ages on Sunday night. Each summer the Church holds a Vacation Bible School Sunday night through Friday with a picnic in the College Park on Friday following the closing program. Our Youth also attend summer camp and winter retreat and also many of our adults serve as counselors, teachers and helpers at Camp Christian in Mill Run, PA.

There is one true God who exists eternally as The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; John 14:9-10, 16-17; God created everything, visible and invisible, in 6 days; Genesis 1:1-3, 31, Acts 17:24, Hebrews 11:3. Jesus, God’s one and only begotten Son, fully human and fully divine, was born of a virgin, led a sinless life, performed miracles, died an atoning death on the cross for our sins, bodily arose from the dead, ascended into Heaven, and will return in power and glory; Acts 2:22-24, 1 Corinthians 15:3-8, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. The Holy Spirit, received in baptism, actively leads and guides our lives; Acts 2:38, John 16:13, Romans 8:9-11. We have worth as a creation of God in His image; Genesis 1:27. We are all sinners who need a Savior; Romans 3:23. Salvation is by the pure grace of God, secured by Christ alone, our one and only Lord and Savior, through His blood. Jesus is the only way to Salvation; Acts 4:12, Ephesians 2:8-9, John 10:24-28. We receive God’s grace by hearing the Good News about Christ; Romans 10:14, 17, believing that Jesus is the Christ; John 3:16, John 8:24, (See also: Acts 16:31 Rom. 10:10; Eph 1:13, 2:8-9), repenting of sin; Luke 13:3; 2 Corinthians 7:9-10, (See also: Acts 2:38, 3:19, 17:30-31; Acts 26:20) confessing Christ; Matthew 10:32-33, Romans 10:9-10, (See also: Matt. 16:15-16; Jn 1:49; 6:69; 11:27; Acts 8:37), and being Baptized by immersion into Christ for the remission of sin and the gift of the Holy Spirit; Mark 16:16, Acts 2:38-41, Acts 16:33, Acts 22:16, Romans 6:3-7, 1 Peter 3:21, (See also Matthew 28:18-20; John 3:5, Acts 19:1-6; 2 Cor. 5:17; Galatians 3:27; Eph. 4:5; Col 2:12) and that change in lifestyle, due to accepting Christ as Lord and Savior, will continue throughout life; Matthew 24:13, Revelation 2:10 (See also: Matthew 6:33; 2 Peter 1:5-12, 3:18); but that none of these is sufficient in and of itself for the assurance of salvation. (See Romans 5:1-2; Luke 24:45-47; Acts 3:19; 17:30; 2 Peter 3:9; Matthew10:32; Romans 10:9; Philippians 2:11; 1 John 4:15; Acts 2:38; Romans 6:1-7; Galatians 3:27; Colossians 2:12; 1 Peter 3:21) (continued)
