DSC04650A church is not a building, but a group of people who have one main thing in common; they believe in the saving power of the resurrected Jesus Christ. This is a traditional definition, as there are modern churches that do not believe that Jesus was crucified or rose from the dead, but we at Mt. Nebo believe in the historical, biographical and evidential accounts of the living God in Holy Scripture.

We are not perfect. We do not have all the answers. But, we are striving to become better people; more loving, more joyous, and more involved in helping those in need. We are United Methodist which means that many of our beliefs about God are deeply rooted in John Wesley and his “Methodists” of the 18th Century. Talk about a Revolutionary, Radical group of people! We do have diversity of beliefs, meaning that some of us may not hold so “tightly” to John Wesley and his specific thoughts about God and Scripture. We are open to dialogue, but we understand God requires Holy living. We need the Power of the Holy Spirit to carry out such living. We are called to treat all people, of all faiths with dignity.

We welcome you to come learn about God the Father, God’s son Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, about us, or even about John Wesley. We are not pushy, but simply try to treat others the way we’d like to be treated- with warmth, hospitality, dignity, and love. We learn from each other, and we expect to learn from you and also share with you the countless blessings we have received in the Risen Christ. The greatest of these blessings are forgiveness of sins, and a new abundant eternal life, which begins the moment of our repentance! Our prayer is that you would know the abundance of love that God has for you, and that you would trust Jesus to bring you new life- one of adventure, holiness, peace, and eternal joy! We strive to be a praying, Bible reading, intelligent AND faithful, believing church, and we can not do it alone. We need God and we need each other! So come, be blessed, and be a blessing to others.

Mount Nebo is part of the Southwest District of the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference of the United Methodist Church.
