Who We Are
Calvary Bible Fellowship of Mercer County is a bible-based gathering of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Our supreme desire is to know Christ and be conformed to His image by the power of the Holy Spirit through the Word of God. Our style of teaching and worship are heavily influenced by Calvary Chapel. We are a non-denominational fellowship. We are not opposed to denominations as such, only their over-emphasis of the doctrinal differences that have led to the division of the Body of Christ.
TRANSFORMED BY THE WORD
Meet the Padillas
Gabe and Jess Padilla attended Calvary Chapel Philly throughout their courtship, early years of marriage and parenthood. Gabe was on staff as a janitor and substitute bible teacher and Jess was a teacher in their high school academy. They grew under the guidance of the CC Philly pastors and staff until God called them out to the mission field as house-parents to orphaned children. Their Journey from there lead them to Hershey Pa, Southern California, Bucks County Pa and eventually to Western Pennsylvania where they now minister to the Mercer County population. Gabe and Jess have a heart to partner with the local churches in Mercer County to stand against the increasing hopelessness and brokenness. They have a high regard for the local ministers in the region, even adopting one, Pastor Kent Bell of Bethel Life, as their mentor. Their hope is to see the Body of Christ in Mercer County unified in the message of the Gospel and standing together, shining light into this present darkness in the name of Jesus Christ.
