Pure and Simple

Our churches are affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention and Pennsylvania/South Jersey Baptist Resource Network, working together to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone, helping them live life daily as a disciple of Christ. We partner together in order to assist and encourage one another in fulfilling God's mission to make disciples of all nations!

If you and your church would be interested in learning how you can partner with us, please contact us today!

Our Beliefs



The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God's revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter.



There is one and only one living and true God. The eternal God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.



God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace. God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ.



Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ, He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He honored the divine law by His personal obedience, and in His death on the cross, He made provision for the redemption of men from sin.

We are Thankful For You!
