Welcome to First Bible Church Although we live amongst the scenic vistas of the Northeast Poconos region, we are not bound by this beauty. Rather, we are bound by an abiding love for our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ who loved us and gave himself for us. We are saved by faith in His name, baptized in His name, pray in His name, gather as a church in His name, preach the gospel in His name, minister the word of God in His name, and bear reproach for His name. We honor our Lord and Saviour by identifying with His name.
Our Purpose is best summed up as this: "...the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ" (Ephesians 4:12). Our primary ministry is to equip both young and old believers with the mind and heart of Jesus Christ, thereby enabling them to be spiritually fruitful (Colossians 1:9-10) and glorify God (Romans 15:6, I Corinthians 6:20).
Our Priority is to hold forth the Word of God as the source of life and all spiritual blessing. God has revealed His mind through the scriptures, and His words have been preserved in all their purity in the King James Bible. We love and trust these words. "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God" (Matthew 4:4).
Our Passion is to magnify the Person and Work of the Lord Jesus Christ through the preaching of the gospel here and throughout the world. We are missionaries to those with whom we live and work. Additionally, we support other missionaries as God provides. We seek not only to reach the lost, but to encourage and support those who have presented their lives for the cause of Christ everywhere (Romans 12:1-2). Our parent work, First Bible Church of Staten Island, allows our church family other opportunities, including mission trips to the Philippines, Haiti, and Mexico. Our families believe they have daily opportunities to declare the gospel of Jesus Christ (Acts1:1-3, Romans 1:16).
