OUR vision

House on the Rock Family church was founded in 1989 by Senior Pastor James Petrow. Our mission is to present character changing truths from God’s Word enabling us to live in God’s blessing and attract others to Jesus Christ. The vision of House on the Rock Family Church is to Win the lost, Establish the believer and Demonstrate the love of God and the power of the Holy Spirit.  Everything we do is centered around these goals.


Celebrating 30 years

In May of 2019 House on the Rock celebrated  years of ministry in LeHeigh Valley!  We are committed to another 30 years serving the people of Wind Gap and the surrounding area with an unwavering loyalty to the Word of God and excellence.

What We Believe

The Bible:

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, and that none may add or take away from it.

The Trinity:

We believe that the Godhead eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit and these three are one God.

+ + +

The Church:

We believe that the Church consists of all persons who have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and made new people in Christ Jesus.

+ + +

The Savior:

We believe that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that through the death and risen power of Christ, all who believe and confess Jesus as Lord can be saved from the penalty and power of sin.

+ + +

The Healer:

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the healer and that healing is provided for in the atonement and through the power of the Holy Spirit.

The Coming King:

We believe in the personal return of our Lord Jesus Christ to receive to Himself all born again believers.

Water baptism by immersion is a public witness, in obedience to Christ's commands. Baptism of the Holy Spirit empowers the believer for life and service.

To commemorate His death until He returns.

Greetings from Pastor Jim and Judy!

Since our founding on May 19, 1989 we have seen over 8000 people either dedicate or re-dedicate their lives to Jesus Christ. Many more have been healed physically, mentally and spiritually. The radically changed lives of those who have attended our church is the true measure of our success. My wife Judy and I would like to invite you to join us in one of our life changing services.  Come experience the love, power and presence of God and the love and acceptance of the many families who call House on the Rock their home. God’s richest blessings to you and your family.
