Hello and thank you for considering a visit to Allentown Bible Church! Our church exists to follow Christ together in grace and truth. We would love for you to join us and see for yourself exactly what it means to Follow Christ Together.
We’re currently wearing masks to and from our seats. Once you’re at your seat, you’re welcome to remove your mask or leave it on – the choice is yours.
Our gatherings are times to worship through song, to share what God is doing through our body life, & to hear God’s Word through preaching.
Where are you currently meeting?
ABC is meeting at the East-Side Youth Center Social Hall, 1140 East Clair Street, Allentown, PA 18109. The parking lot and entrance is located across Maxwell Street from the Planet Fitness shopping center just south of the intersection with Hanover Avenue. We have a fellowship time at 9:30am followed by a worship service at 10:00am.
Is there something for my kids?
We currently have a nursery time for non-school-age children. Until COVID passes, we will only have a periodic children’s church time for school-age kids.
What makes you different than other churches?
We do not believe that we are the only church out there doing a good job with the Gospel, and we applaud churches that are concentrated on living out the Great Commission and elevating God’s Word above man’s opinion. A focus of our church that may be different than other churches is our focus on relationships. We believe that God’s design for the church is a relational community that grows together in the truth of His Word.
What is your leadership style?
We believe that Scripture sets forth a pattern of leadership where multiple men are involved in the spiritual decisions of the church, while still having a “first among equals” within that group. This “first among equals,” who for us is the lead pastor, meets with these men to discuss and decide on the spiritual direction of the church. We do not believe in domineering leadership, nor do we believe in lethargic leadership.
What version of the Bible do you utilize?
Feel free to bring whatever version you are comfortable with. The ESV, NIV, CSB, & NASB are all utilized in the preaching and teaching ministries of our church.
