The Philadelphia Church - Bedford Valley

Geographically located in the historical Bedford Valley and scripturally located as pillars in the temple of God in heavenly Jerusalem, The Philadelphia Church - Bedford Valley continues in the Anabaptist Sabbatarian tradition of Pennsylvania's Ephrata Cloister while being committed to delivering Jesus' words of patient endurance to all the world as a witness to all nations, these words being that all who endure to the end shall be saved (Matt 24:13). They will be saved for they will be born of Spirit, born empowered by the Holy Spirit halfway through seven endtime years of tribulation.

This Bedford Valley fellowship is associated with The Philadelphia Church, and has incorporated its Bylaws and Statement of Beliefs into the fellowship's founding documents. The Bedford Valley fellowship began in 2003, but suspended most activities a year later. It is again emerging to publicly proclaim the most hopeful message known. Therefore, an invitation is extended to all Philadelphians to join with the small fellowship in the Bedford Valley to do the greatest work the world has ever seen, a work based upon the faith that causes uncircumcised and circumcised alike to keep the precepts of the law (Rom 2:26-29). A work not of might, but of faith.

There have been Sabbatarian disciples in the Bedford Valley since the middle of the 18th-Century, with these disciples leading circumcised-of-heart Israel's journey from spiritual Babylon to heavenly Jerusalem. Come, join with those disciples who are leaving the world behind.
