The Gospel is at the Center
We are applying the good news of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection in practical deeds of love and service. Inwardly, we are building a community centered on Jesus through discipleship and mutual care. Outwardly, we serve under His leadership to bring about the renewal of all things as we interact with our local area and the world.
Throughout our church history we have shared Christ with others in word and deed and drawn them into our fellowship. At the same time, Jesus has led us to a strong commitment to world missions. Over the years, we have partnered with many missionaries and their church planting and mercy projects. We long to see cultures where Jesus is honored.
A History of Growth
From New Life Fort Washington’s beginning in 1987 as a “daughter church” of the then Jenkintown New Life congregation, we have always had a strong emphasis on the way God’s unmerited grace changes us and changes the world around us as we reach out. We grew quickly and our members and friends come from the local area and the larger region.
Our desire has been to see growth within our church family and to multiply churches. We have assisted in the birth of several sister churches over the years. At the same time, we’ve been on a location pilgrimage. We worshiped for a time at the current location of congregation Or Hadash in Fort Washington.
Looking toward the future!
When that property was sold, our congregation began renting space at Philmont Christian Academy in Erdenheim. We worshiped there for 11 years, while simultaneously searching for a permanent home. In spring 2001, we purchased our current property in Dresher.
Planning and building began. Our new home was officially opened on October 15, 2006, when we celebrated our first worship service in our new facility. But the building is simply bricks and mortar. Our continuing desire is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ here and around the world. Today after renewing our commitment to keep the gospel at the center, we reach out to a needy world, expressing our faith through love.
