Is a fellowship of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Our Greatest desire is to know Christ and be conformed to His image by the power of the Holy Spirit. We are not a denominational church, nor are we opposed to denominations, as such. We are opposed only to the emphasis of non-biblical teachings that divide the Body of Christ. We believe the true basis of Christian fellowship is God’s love, which is greater than our differences. Without His love we have no right to say that we are Christians.

73:1 Truly God is good to Israel,
to those who are pure in heart.
2 But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled,
my steps had nearly slipped.
3 For I was envious of the arrogant
when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
4 For they have no pangs until death;
their bodies are fat and sleek.
5 They are not in trouble as others are;
they are not stricken like the rest of mankind.
6 Therefore pride is their necklace;
violence covers them as a garment.
7 Their eyes swell out through fatness;
their hearts overflow with follies.
8 They scoff and speak with malice;
loftily they threaten oppression.
9 They set their mouths against the heavens,
and their tongue struts through the earth.
10 Therefore his people turn back to them,
and find no fault in them.
11 And they say, “How can God know?
Is there knowledge in the Most High?”
12 Behold, these are the wicked;
always at ease, they increase in riches.
13 All in vain have I kept my heart clean
and washed my hands in innocence.
14 For all the day long I have been stricken
and rebuked every morning.
15 If I had said, “I will speak thus,”
I would have betrayed the generation of your children.
16 But when I thought how to understand this,
it seemed to me a wearisome task,
17 until I went into the sanctuary of God;
then I discerned their end.
18 Truly you set them in slippery places;
you make them fall to ruin.
19 How they are destroyed in a moment,
swept away utterly by terrors!
20 Like a dream when one awakes,
O Lord, when you rouse yourself, you despise them as phantoms.
21 When my soul was embittered,
when I was pricked in heart,
22 I was brutish and ignorant;
I was like a beast toward you.
23 Nevertheless, I am continually with you;
you hold my right hand.
24 You guide me with your counsel,
and afterward you will receive me to glory.
25 Whom have I in heaven but you?
And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you.
26 My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
27 For behold, those who are far from you shall perish;
you put an end to everyone who is unfaithful to you.
28 But for me it is good to be near God;
I have made the Lord God my refuge,
that I may tell of all your works. (ESV)
Though a bookstore might be considered a novelty, we want you to know we consider this a ministry: For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Ephesians 4:12. Our aim is to equip.
Like any other ministry, you will have the privilege of watching this one grow. But your help is needed: Prayer. Please pray that we would be able to provide the best of equipping resources: From children’s books to doctrine, to practical Christian living, to Apologetics (defending the faith), to Jewish Studies; also, counseling, marriage, parenting, and more.
We, your servants, will be glad to help you in any way we can. If you have any suggestions, please don’t hesitate to let us know.

Yes! By God's grace and leading, this is true. We are seeking to lead the Tlingit native (pronounced "Klink-it") community of Angoon to more economic self-sufficiency by implementing four modules. And as we are elated to announce this, we must note that there will now be two branches to our labor of love in Southeast Alaska: "Antioch in Angoon," our overall effort in proclaiming the Gospel, via missions trips, one-on-one discipling, and community outreaches and Bible studies; and the "Angoon Alive Project," a separate non-profit corporation seeking to lead Angoon to more economic self-sufficiency."
R.A.I.V.E desires to see Christian college students and early career age Christians in the greater Philadelphia area recognizing the beauty, the ease, and the power of coming together. We strive to pool talents, resources, and prayers to equip each other to return to our campuses and flourish. Further, we desire to see Christian leaders and groups rise up on campuses where there are none.
R.A.I.V.E meets on the last Friday of every month, to worship, pray, and fellowship together in glory to our Lord and Savior. We have various churches, campuses, bands, and Pastors involved in our ministry to stress the unity of the body of Christ.
