We, the church at Spring City, see ourselves as a New Testament Brotherhood. We believe Jesus Christ died for our sins and that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. We strive to live consistent lives and to open ourselves to the work of the Holy Spirit today. If you would like spiritual help or counsel, we welcome your inquiry.
We are delighted to have Dr. Marianne Modica of University of Valley Forge with us at our Sunday morning worship at 10:15am, when she will share her presentation: More Than One World. Dr. Modica has worked extensively in the area of race, particularly in the academic setting, and has recently helped facilitate Community Forums for Race, Safety and Law Enforcement here in Spring City. Her books, King Me!, The R Word, and Race Among Friends will be available following the service.
Rhema Worship Center, 177 Chestnut Street, Spring City, 19475, will be the host for this important discussion. Please plan to join us on Thursday, November 10th, at 7 PM at Rhema as Pastor Abu Bradley, Pastor John Holsey, & Dr. Marianne Modica lead us in discussing these topics to build a safe & just community for all.
Pastor Yvon Georges from Haiti
In 1738 a young man named John Wesley returned to London after a heartbreaking ministry experience in Georgia. Dejected and directionless, he reluctantly attended a meeting held by a group of Moravians at Aldersgate Street. While there he had an experience which he described as:
“I felt my heart strangely warmed. I felt I did trust in Christ, Christ alone for salvation, and an assurance was given me that he had taken away my sins, even mine, and saved me from the law of sin and death.”
It is my belief that at this moment John Wesley was baptized in the Holy Spirit. He and his brother Charles went on to form the Band Societies, which became the nucleus of what we now call the Methodist Church. The backbone of these early ministries was two-fold: Clear preaching of the Word of God, and a resolute desire for transparent, accountable relationships between men.
For whatever else has become of the movement God began through John Wesley, the Biblical truth remains:
“If we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.” (1 John 1:9)
Throughout the history of the church every great revival has begun with a group of people who made the decision to draw close to God and make their relationship with him their highest priority. The story of God and his people, revealed in the Bible, is the story of how God has brought us back to himself. We are reconciled and restored to our Father in heaven through Jesus Christ, who promises the indwelling of the Holy Spirit to be our guide in this life.
It is this prompting of the Holy Spirit that has led us to form the Band of Brothers. The booklet you now hold is meant to be a guide for us as we collectively pursue God. It is not a substitution in any way for knowing Jesus, studying the Bible, or being baptized in the Holy Spirit, but I do believe it is a Holy Spirit directed way for us to:
“Confess our sins to each other and pray for each other so that we may be healed.” (adapted from James 5:16)
