Who We Are

We are a friendly, multigenerational congregation which averages 560 on a Sunday morning with two services. We stand on the primacy of the Scriptures and the New Birth. We desire and pray for both conversion and transformation in our midst. We are evangelical, reformed, and baptistic. Our worship contains a variety of music styles and congregational participation. Our favorite phrase is “People Matter To God.”

We are part of the Bible Fellowship Church, a denomination of over sixty churches located throughout the northeastern United States.

Our Services

What are services like?
Our worship services last approximately 1 hour and 5 minutes. You’ll worship with a blend of music varying from choir anthems to hymns to contemporary music, prayer, scripture reading, offering, and sermon. A sermon guide is normally available for note-taking. There are Assisted Listening Devices available. Recordings of the sermons are available through our website. As a visitor, we invite you to just let the offering plate pass you by. A “welcome pad” will be passed down the row so that we can record your attendance with us. If you need a copy of the Bible, feel free to take one of our pew Bibles before you leave. There are Sunday School programs for children, youth, college students and adults.

What is the community like?
People of all ages and backgrounds attend Ebenezer Bible Fellowship Church: couples, families, singles, students, etc. The Pastors and others up front dress conservatively, but you’ll see all kinds of attire in the congregation (from jeans to business suits). Our greeters will welcome you at the front door on a Sunday morning and give you a bulletin. They also have a welcome packet for first-time visitors that contains a small gift and a little more information about Ebenezer. The greeters (who also staff the “Information Counter” in the lobby) are available to answer questions or give directions.

Leadership

Tim Gibson

Tim Gibson

Tim Gibson was raised in a Christian home in Guymon, Oklahoma where he was saved at the age of 9. His early years were greatly impacted by many godly men who encouraged him to be an intern both in his high school and college years. It was at the University of Oklahoma where Tim’s spiritual growth matured as he served as a Discipleship/Bible study leader in the men’s dorms for five consecutive years while getting his Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry in 1992. Tim went on to get a Master of Environmental Science from the University of Oklahoma in 1994. Tim always hoped that the Lord would call him into ministry. Until that call came, he served as an Industrial Hygienist for an environmental consulting firm in Shreveport, La. It was at his local church, Springs of Grace Baptist Church under his former pastor Rex Blankenship that Tim’s call to full time ministry came. Springs of Grace asked Tim to pray about being the youth pastor to which he accepted, sensing the Lord’s leading and the Church’s confirmation of his gifting. Tim served as full time youth pastor for two years and was ordained in August of 1998. Tim went to Dallas Seminary and received a Master of Theology in 2002. At the same time, he accepted a call to be the Senior Pastor of Heritage Baptist Church in Waxahachie, Tx, where he served for 11 years. The Lord was faithful in those years growing the Church, saving the lost, and developing Tim’s passion for preaching and a commitment to sound doctrine. Tim went to The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky to develop his skills in expository preaching graduating in December 2011 with his Doctor of Ministry degree. Tim has been married to his best friend Julie since 1993. The Lord has blessed their family with four incredible children: Hannah, Abram, Callie and Hudson. Tim and his family moved from Texas to Pennsylvania in July 2012 to be the Senior Pastor of Ebenezer Bible Fellowship Church. Tim is excited and trusting the Lord for His grace to lead Ebenezer Bible to be a place of biblical truth, a place of genuine love and a place where broken sinners can come and experience the love and saving power of Jesus Christ!
