Our Mission is to make disciples of Jesus who become a family together, for the good of Gloucester City and beyond!
Back in 2017 Epiphany Fellowship of Camden, which was itself planted by (Epiphany Fellowship Church in Philadelphia) just five years before that called forward and commissioned the Marlin family and the Lebakken’s to plant a new Church in Gloucester City, NJ. With this team of just two families and not a lot of history in the community Pastor Joe opened up his home every week, having tons of nieghbors over for deserts and a firepit and than began meeting in local bars and resturants for “Theology on Tap” an open discussion on important issues with a good mix of people some who would call themselves Christians and others who wouldn’t.
We invited all our friends to come celebrate with our our first public service in March of 2018 where we still meet in the heart of town on the corner of Monmouth & Sussex. Each year God has been drawing new people, and we’ve really seen our mission become a reality, as a great mix of people coming form different struggles and doubts and even hurts from previous experiences in Church have come together as a family together, learning to follow Jesus again or for the first time.
Just as we were planted from a new Church in Camden, we were so greatful to see Pastor Dylan, trained up, ordained and sent off to plant Five Points Church in Norfolk, VA back in 2022, when our Church was just four years old. Our desire is to continue to plant Churches, and we are praying the next one could be in the South Jersey area.
Epiphany comes from the Greek word epiphainein which means “to manifest, display, show off; come suddenly into view,” and recalls the historic moment the wise men met with the Christ child. (Matthew 2:1-12). We love being relationally connected to this movement of new ‘epiphany’ Churches from LA, Baltimore, Wilmington, to Brooklyn, but most importantly we want you to experience an Epiphany and meet the only one who change everything.
No matter what your history is with Jesus good, bad or indifferent, we are a movement of people that both have epiphanies and are living epiphanies, giving the people around us a new look at who God is by how we live. We truely believe in ministry grounded deeply in God’s word and empowered by His Spirit, and we are a Church that loves to pray and see God move!
