We can’t do it alone!
Over the next year we will be looking for those who feel called to join us in this new work in Lebanon. Although it is a new work, our confidence is in Christ. As the head of his church , he has promised to build his church. We pray that he will bless the work of our hands and establish a church in the Lebanon County for His glory and the flourishing of our communities.

The Nicene Creed
I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made. Who, for us men for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; and the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end. And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets. And I believe one holy catholic and apostolic Church. I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
The Apostles Creed
I believe in God the Father, Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth
And in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord
Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary
Suffered under Pontius Pilate; was crucified, dead and buried; He descended into hell
The third day he rose again from the dead
He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty
From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead
I believe in the Holy Ghost
I believe a holy catholic church; the communion of saints
The forgiveness of sins
The resurrection of the body
And the life everlasting. Amen.
The proclamation of the Good News: Christianity is not merely a way of life or a set of morals to live by. The essence of the Christian faith is a message of what has been done for us and what we must respond to. This good news is that Christ has rescued us from peril of our sins and given us eternal life. It is Christ’s work, when it is believed and rested in, reconciles us to God.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ: at the core of the Gospel of Christ is the message of His grace to sinners. We live in a time when people are trying very hard to be “good enough” to be accepted and seen as worthy. Whether it is following a code of conduct in order to feel accepted or working hard to be seen as a success to God and those around us, we yearn to find a sense of significance and satisfaction in this life. But the Christian faith provides a grace where we are fully accepted in Christ and given a complete salvation that we did not earn or obtain through hard work. Responding to this sheer grace that is not based on our merit or demerit, we learn to gladly and gratefully live for Christ and do good works for His glory.
The beauty of diversity and racial reconciliation: The last book of the Bible gives us a beautiful picture of the church of Jesus Christ. The Scripture says that Christ purchased with his blood (redeemed) people from every tribe, tongue, and nation (Revelation 5:9-10). These words paint for us the picture of racial diversity and racial harmony taking place in the church even as the world around us is filled with so much hate and misunderstanding. Christ’s work on the cross was designed to gather people from the whole range of ethnic diversity in the world. God intends to have a people not just from white or black or red or yellow ethnic groups but from all ethnic groups. We value all people gloriously made in God’s image and envision a church in Lebanon County that reflects such diversity and difference.
We envision a church that impacts and reaches the towns across Lebanon County, including, but not limited
to, Annville, Cleona, Lebanon City, Cornwall, and Jonestown. We strive to be a “regional church,” helping
people from all backgrounds and of all ages, to discover the Good News of Christ and come to know
their divine design so that they may be equipped to serve Christ effectively in their families, communities, and the world. From now to the end of summer, we will be spending our time gathering a core group of interested people, raising funds, and building a leadership team. Our first goal is to begin small group meetings in the Fall of 2020.
