Our Church History
Hebrews 3:4 says, “For every house is builded by some man: but he that built all things is God.”
On June 10, 1973, a group of approximately 40 people, together with their brand new 60 X 30 building, chartered the Dublin Mills Community Church which continues today. Situated on a picturesque spot in the countryside of northern Fulton County, PA, it’s a wonderful place to come apart and meet with God in those times of public worship, as well as to serve God through those opportunities of local outreach.
Some thirty years and four pastors later, the property and ministry have experienced some definite changes. Facilities have been enlarged and improved to meet the demands of a ministry God is blessing and multiplying.
But some things haven’t changed. Our purpose remains firm—to glorify God. Our goals are the same—to introduce a lost world to Jesus Christ who alone can satisfy their deepest need; and to edify true believers who together make up the body of Jesus Christ. And our sole textbook has not changed either—God’s Holy Word, the Bible.
