Welcome to Moore's Mountain Church

Bible-Believing Independent Baptist

About Us


 Biblical Christianity is more than religion. It's about a relationship  between a person and God through faith in Jesus Christ.  Our aim is to  proclaim and practice Biblical Christianity, to love God and love  others, and to learn and live God's truth together.  It is our desire  that as we walk with God, others may come to a saving knowledge of Jesus  Christ through our example and witness of the Gospel.

In addition to Orthodox Christian beliefs, we hold to the following:

Believer's baptism by immersion

A regenerate church membership

The separation between church and state

The eternal security of the believer and the perseverance and preservation of the Saints

The two church offices are Pastors and Deacons

The two ordinances of the church are Baptism and the Lord's Supper

The Pre-tribulation rapture of the church

The Millennial Reign of Christ on earth after His Advent

While  the church is one body comprised of Jew and Gentile, God still has a  special plan for Israel which includes Israel's future restoration

Our Pastor

Gavin Whitcomb, Sr. is native to Central PA and has been the Pastor of  Moore's Mountain Church since 1989.  He earned a BS in Pastoral Theology  from Hyles-Anderson College in Crown Point, IN.  His expository Bible  preaching and teaching emphasize sound doctrine with application of  scriptural principles to daily life, as well as Christian apologetics.   As a musician and songwriter, he leads the church's music and blended  worship.  He and his wife, Christi, reside nearby in Etters. 

What We Believe

We believe in Biblical Christianity, which means we hold to the Bible as  the final authority on all matters of faith and practice.  We consider  the following three doctrines to be essential pillars of the true,  biblical, historic Christian faith:

1. The Bible as the infallible Word of God

2. The Deity of Jesus Christ, and its companion doctrine, the Trinity

3.  That salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, and not by works

We are an Independent Baptist church. 

We believe that independent autonomous congregations are the biblical model.  We also consider ourselves Baptists, because we believe that the Baptist doctrines we hold are the closest and most faithful to the  teachings of the Bible.
