OUR PASTORS

A native of Ridley Township, accepted Christ at the age of 21 and moved to Colorado where he met his wife of more than 26 years. He knew that he would one day return to Ridley, PA to bring hope to a place where he once was hopeless without Christ. Now, as Pastor of NDCC since 2007, he preaches a clear message of the Gospel and reveals practical ways to live a faith-filled, effective life for Christ.

A wife and mother of their three adult children, has co-labored with her husband for over 20 years in ministry, reaching the hearts of men and women domestically and abroad. She shares her husband’s burden to give hope to the hopeless as she ministers the love of Christ through sound teachings and a genuine compassion to see broken lives restored. Pastor Dave and Teresa are both ordained with MFC Ministerial Fellowship. Pastor Teresa received a degree in Pastoral Counseling from Cornerstone University.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

THE TRINITY

We believe that God is a Trinity, in unity manifested in three persons: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. (Matthew 3:16-17)

JESUS

We believe that salvation is possible through the meritorious work of Jesus Christ on the cross and that we are saved by faith through God’s grace. (John 3:16; Ephesians 2:8-9)

 

We believe through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ there is power to over come addictions, restore brokenness, heal mental and physical oppression; so that one may walk in the abundant life God has planned for those who believe.

 

We believe through a personal relationship with Jesus lives are lifted and restored.

THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe The Holy Spirit is active in the life of believers as the Spirit of wisdom, instruction, edification and comfort. Believers can build themselves upon their most holy faith through an active life of engaging in spirit filled prayer.(See Jude 1:20)

THE BIBLE

We believe the scripture of the Old and New Testament to be the inspired Word of God, presenting to us the complete revelation of God’s will for the redemption of mankind, and constituting the divine and only rule of Christian faith practice. 

(2 Timothy 3:16; Peter 1:21)

 

We believe The Bible is the inspired Word of God. It is the relevant blue-print for practical life, spiritual life and eternal life.

MAN

We believe that man is created in the image of God, but through Adam’s transgression and fall, sin came into the world. (Romans 3:23; Romans 5:12)

THE CHURCH

We believe that the true church is the body of Jesus Christ, Jesus himself being the head. It is made up of all believers that witness a born again experience. (Ephesians 2:19-22; Colossians 1:18)​

FIVE FOLD MINISTRY

We believe that God calls men and women to serve in the five-fold ministry, and specifically endues the one called with the talents and abilities peculiar to that office. Under no circumstances should anyone be set apart to ministry unless the calling is distinct, evident, and confirmed by the Presbyter. (Ephesians 4:8-13)​

WATER BAPTISM

We believe that water baptism is by immersion and is a direct commandment of the Lord for all believers. The ordinance is symbolic of our identification with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection. (Matthew 29:19; Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:12)​

FIRE BAPTISM

We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit is a gift from God and is available to all believers. The baptism in the Holy Spirit is a second work of grace received after salvation, the initial sign of which is speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit gives utterance. (John 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; Acts 2;4)

SANCTIFICATION

We believe that sanctification is a definite yet progressive work of grace in the life of a believer, beginning with the new birth and consummation at the revelation of Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 3:18; 1 Thessalonians 5:23; 2 Peter 3:18; Hebrews 12:14)​

COMMUNION

We believe in the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper. In a real way the presence and power of God is revealed in communion. We neither believe transubstantiation, nor consubstantiation, but believe the Lord is in the communion in a real and personal way being received by the believers. (1 Corinthians 11:27)​

HEALING

We believe that healing is part of the atonement and can be appropriated by faith in Jesus redeeming work. (Acts 10:38; 1 Peter 2:24)

RESURRECTION

We believe in the resurrection of the just at the return of Christ. We further believe the righteous dead is in the presence of God until the resurrection. (1 Corinthians 5:8; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)

SECOND COMING

We believe in a visible return of Christ and a literal catching away of the church to meet the Lord in the air. In as much as there is a great dispute in the body of Christ concerning the actual placement of this event on the calendar of God, let it be stated that we believe in a pre-tribulation catching away of the elect. Let it further be stated that the doctrine of the rapture is not a point of fellowship in this church or in the body of Christ. (1 Thessalonians 4:17-17); 2 Thessalonians 2:7) 

HELL

We believe that one who dies without Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost, destined to a literal hell with no further opportunity of repentance. (Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 19:20)

TITHE

We believe in the tithe, recognizing that tithing existed before the law and during the law, and after the law. Jesus Himself commended the tithe. The writer of Hebrews established the tithe as New Testament practice. Tithing is representative of our personal commitment to the Lord and is a reflection of our covenant relationship with Him. (Genesis 14:18-20; Malachi 3:10; Matthew 23:23; Hebrews 7:8)
