Who we are
We are a group of Christians who come from a number of different backgrounds. Our common denominator is a desire to know, love, and follow the living Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. His love has captured us, and in such a love we meet together with a church life according to the New Testament revelation.
We are families and singles. We are young and old. We are workers at a variety of jobs along with college students. We come from many countries and cherish all races. But with this variety there is a marvelous oneness of the Spirit that we strive to keep.
Concerning our name, we consider all believers in Pittsburgh to be the church. To help keep the oneness among all the believers, we hold no special name, but simply call ourselves the church in Pittsburgh, which is what the early believers did. For example, when the apostle John wrote the book of Revelation, he referred to seven churches in seven cities, one of which was the church in Philadelphia.
Our Beliefs… let’s keep it simple…The Bible
We believe that the Bible is the authoritative, inerrant, complete (66 books), divinely inspired Word of God which defines the complete divine truth and reveals God’s way of salvation.
We believe that God is one triune God—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, three distinct but not separate Persons who coexist equally from eternity to eternity.
The person and work of Jesus Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, became incarnated to be a sinless man, born of the Virgin Mary, that he might be our redeemer and Savior. The Lord Jesus died for our sins on the cross and then rose from the dead on the third day both spiritually and physically. He then ascended to heaven to be the Lord of all and is coming again in the future.
