Penn Forest Christian Church
Welcome to Penn Forest Christian Church!
We are associated with independent Christian Churches and Churches of Christ. As such we have an independent governance but a shared commitment to Christ as our only creed and the Bible as our only rule of faith and practice. We are a fellowship who welcomes everyone who accepts Jesus as the Christ and who will share a willingness to conform their lives and practices to the guidance of Scripture. In areas where the Bible clearly speaks we seek unity of conviction. In areas where it does not clearly speak, we seek liberty for each person to be guided in their understanding. In both situations, we intend to be guided by love and trust.
This commitment has led us to some practices that may seem novel to Christians more bound to church tradition. It has led us to a weekly observance of the Lord's Supper, limit baptism to those old enough to make a personal commitment of faith, practice baptism by immersion and understand it as the point in time a believer is united to Christ.
