Our Story

Who Are We?

We are a Bible-believing and teaching church seeking to glorify God, to equip Christians to serve Him, and to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the Wyoming Valley area of Northeastern PA and around the world. 

A little about us

Our church is an independent Baptist Church ministering to the Wyoming Valley and Back Mountain communities of NEPA. In 2012, the Lord used a series of difficult circumstances in our congregation that would ultimately lead us to draw closer to Him. After much time in prayer, in 2014, we then became a church revitalization effort through Grace Advance, the revitalization and church plant ministry of Dr. John MacArthur and The Master’s Seminary. It was at that time that our current Pastor-Teacher, Matt Tarr, was serving on staff in the counseling department at Grace Community Church when he heard of our situation. We believe it was a gracious work of the Lord to so quickly draw our hearts together, and by December of that same year, Pastor Matt and his family made the long trip from California to High Point. Though our congregation has been steadily growing numerically under Pastor Matt’s leadership since that time, it is most important that we have been growing in maturity, grace, and love. We contribute that to nothing less than the power of the Word of God as we gather each Sunday to hear His message preached. We rejoice in all the work God has done in us, and look forward with great anticipation what He will continue to do!

Where we are headed...

Our chief purpose is to glorify God; bring honor to His name by being conformed to the image of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ; and to exalt Him through worship and by sharing the gospel with others. Christians are called by God to do this by being gathered together as a local church. The church glorifies God by building itself up in the faith by the instruction of the Word, by proclaiming and celebrating His attributes, by demonstrating His love through fellowship, by keeping the ordinances, and by advancing and proclaiming the gospel to the entire world.
