Our vision is to see Philadelphia saturated with Gospel-centered churches so that many people come to Christ and together communities are transformed.
We will bond together as Philadelphia PCA churches to plant and support the development of Gospel-centered churches that will reproduce themselves, engage in a ministry of word and deed for the transformation of their particular communities, and participate in cooperative ministries, all to accomplish what can only happen in connection with others.
