We are ordinary people made by an extraordinary God--just like you!
It's about HIM, not us! We want love, acceptance, forgiveness, and peace with God. We need compassion, mercy, grace, and renewal. In short, we need salvation. This we have found in Christ! No one here is pefect. We have our faults, shortcomings, failures, and mistakes. But God is working on us.
God is busy restoring run away people back to Himself in Christ (2 Cointhians 5:19) ... and He has enlisted the restored to get the message out that we can come back to God without fear of punishment.
We are a 300 year old congregation. It's true! As part of the original Mennonite Church, this congregation was first established back in 1703 in what is now known as Lower Skippack Mennonite Church. But in 1848 the denomination split into two: the Mennonite Church [MC] and the General Conference Mennonite Church [GCMC]. The group that stayed with the original denomination (MC) moved to the present location and started Upper Skippack Mennonite Church--now known as Wellspring Church of Skippack. It's interesting to note that the two denominations have recently (in the past few years) become one again. The denomination is now The Mennonite Church U.S.A. Lower Skippack Mennonite Church has chosen to remain as an independent church not affiliated with any particular Mennonite Denomination.
NO! You do NOT have to be born into the Mennonite Church to be a member or an active pariticipant in our church. If you are a believer and are committed to following Christ as your Lord and Savior, you are one of us! Or, we can say, we are one of you. Christ is the Head of the church, this church, the church down the street, all churches who are founded on Him, built by His Spirit, and established by His Word of Truth. Though denominationalism is a fact of Christian life, it is not the defining factor of Christianity. Christ is the defining factor of Christianity. It is about Him and His followers. When we get to heaven He is not going to ask, what denomination did we belong to; rather He is going to consider what kind of relationship we developed with Him. Did we accept and connect with Him? Did we believe in Him and follow Him. Did we bow to Him and confess Him to be Lord of Lords and King of Kings, Savior of the world, all deserving of our praise, adoration, and worship?
