Local Outreach


To create a culture of evangelism in our local church by equipping our members through biblical teaching and modeling of evangelism & discipleship, providing opportunities to serve in the Lehigh Valley.


To fulfill the “local” expression of the Cedar Crest BFC mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ, seeing the church faithfully share and live out the gospel in every aspect of our daily lives.  Our vision for local outreach is to present the message of eternal life through faith in Christ and to serve the needs of the Lehigh Valley community.
