The church was established in 1805 by Rev. Benjamin Lin, a missionary from Pennsylvania, who also settled several other churches in the area. During the last 200+ years we have been through several buildings, but it has never been about the buildings, it has always been about the people. People that had a vision to reach the community of Lynn Camp for Jesus Christ. That vision hasn’t changed. Our vision statement is, “Taking the Heart of the Cross to the Heart of the Community”
We truly believe that is the love and compassion that Jesus showed for all men were to meet people where they are then all people can be changed. As Jesus said in John 12:32, “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.” No matter where you are today, we will meet you where you are, we will love you and we will show you that same compassion that Jesus showed us when He found us.
In 2020 our challenge is to “Pray for 100” (You can find the sermon on the podcast if you would like to listen). We hope to increase our average attendance and our ability to minister to our community by way of growth. It isn’t just about putting more people into the seats, its about bringing more people into the Kingdom of God. We want to be intentional about what we are doing and that is why our mission as a church will never change. That means living out the Truth of Jesus not just inside the church, but in our everyday lives. We are currently in the midst of praying for a burden for the community and seeking God to bring people in that will help us reach those that need Him.
If you have read to this point, I want to ask you something, where are you at in your walk with Jesus? Are you saved? Have you kept the commitment that you made to Him when you accepted Him? Are you walking with Him as close as you used to? I want you to know that there is a place for you here at Lynn Camp, and there are people that will come along side you and help you walk closer to Him. I welcome you to join us anytime, or you can contact me, Pastor Justin through the prayer request email directly. Know that even if I don’t know your name if you are visit this page there are prayers going out for you and that God knows who you are. In Christ Bro. Justin
