The Book of


In Deuteronomy, Moses addressed the Israelites as they prepared to enter the Promised Land.  It was a call for a renewed commitment to God, and a fresh understanding of the community of God's people.  The lessons of Deuteronomy are still relevant today.  Deuteronomy provides an example for the Kingdom of God in today's world.  It calls us to renew our commitment within the New Covenant.  

Christ has given us a mission to be LIGHT in a world of darkness.

That means we are to:

Evangelize the lost

Bring glory to God

Disciple Christians.

"Pastor Phil,

My name is Jim Quoss and I am the pastor at Freedom Biker Church in York.


Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the communion set your church sent to us. We hope and pray to use it for a church plant in Harrisburg. 


We are so grateful to your church family for partnering with Freedom in our effort to spread the Gospel to unsaved and unchurched bikers.


We will pray for you and please pray for us brother. Thanks again and Be Blessed and Be Free!"

We have completed 5 months of meetings centered on racial reconciliation. Our final topic was Gospel Community. As Christians we are united in Christ.  During our time together friendships have formed.  We look forward to nurturing  these new friendships and working together to build the Kingdom.

Annual Live Nativity 2018

2018 was our 45th Live Nativity!  The weather was beautiful and both nights were well attended.  Many dedicated workers helped to make the Live Nativity a success again this year.  Free refreshments and children's crafts were enjoyed in the Fellowship Hall.  Mr Yeck once again was kind enough to donate the use of the sheep and Conrad the donkey.  Christ was proclaimed!  Plans are already underway for 2019!
