Description of Organization

Church Description:

Our church is located in Dover, DE and has enjoyed God’s blessings for many years under the leadership of our recently retired pastor.

Church Vision:

We are a church whose highest priority is to unite people from “all nations” in the worship of God. Our vision is to reach people of all ethnic backgrounds and social classes. We want everyone to hear the good news of reconciliation with God and with each other through Jesus Christ. We believe that the power of that good news is seen by bringing people together across the lines of race and class to worship and follow Jesus. The love of Christ brings healing in our relationship with God and with one another, and it unifies us to worship Him together. In this worship, our lives are enriched through the diversity of races, cultures and backgrounds. But it goes beyond worship: we also learn and grow together; we share our everyday lives together; and then we go back out to love and serve our community with the Gospel.
