who we are
We are a community of believes of all ages, cultures and backgrounds. We believe that the church should be the most creative place in the universe. That is why we have created a theater church that stages, both ancient and modern day stories that prove that Jesus is alive and healing lives. We show the stories alive on stage, complete with trained actors, lighting, sound effects. God uses our unique and creative approach to captivate, engage and inspire the whole family.
where we come from
Only 5 adults and 6 children showed up for our first worship service in my home on Wyandotte St. in Bethlehem, Pa. We did not feel like much of a church at the time, but the Lord led us into 50 days of prayer and during that time we had 15 people from the community join us. It became challenging to hold services in my home and 4 months later the Lord graciously opened an amazing door of opportunity for us to begin meeting at Touchstone Theater.
We are always looking for new ways to do church. As we continue to grow we are looking for new locations in creative places throughout the city and beyond.
We launched an annual production "JUDGEMENT DAY" that reaches out to the broken to reconcile them to Christ.
where we are going
BALM is a community of people that believes in the power of God given dreams. We believe that Balm is a dream-factory where people get a visions from God and go for it! We want to be a part of the personal dream God has given you, and we invite you to be a part of the corporate dreams God has given us. We look forward to a day when Balm is staging inspiring and uplifting shows every day. We look forward to a day when we are all reaching people in our own sphere of influence. We look forward to a day when we are baptizing people everyday. We look forward to building a state of the art theater church in the Lehigh Valley, Pa. We look forward to having you partner with our dream and letting us partner with you for our dream.
what this means for you
We are better together than we are alone. We invite you to come grow with us, get to know God with us and do life with us. There is more in you than you have discovered. The bible says we have this treasure in earthen vessels. We discover our treasures through coming together, worshiping together, serving together and building together.
