Planting Churches, Making Disciples and Restoring Lives.

Please check this website for updates regarding the day and time for our re-opening. Live streaming will begin Sunday, April 12th on our Facebook page. YouTube clips are also available. Just type in, Embracing Truth Ministries. 

Matthew chapter 24:1-13, (KJV) tells us "PANDEMICS" (pestilence) is one of several early warning signs of Jesus Christ's Return. Because we are cognizant of the times in which we live and have a deep love for all mankind, we as Christians plead for all people to seek guidance and direction from God's Word on how to protect themselves from unavoidable traumas like the global Coronavirus.
By engaging in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ we all can find hope and confidence in the fact that no matter what happens God has our best interest at heart (read Isaiah 55:6-7 and Jeremiah 29:11-13).
To engage in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ all you have to do is pray a prayer like this, "Father God  I confess I am a sinner in desperate need for your gift of love, hope and salvation. Forgive me for all the things I did against you and others. Save me! Thank you!
If you have prayed this prayer and want further instructions on how to cope with life and its uncertainties, please email or call us today. or 215.909.1388.

ETM is a non-denominational, Christ-centered ministry located in the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

At the completion of the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, we will hold all of our Sunday worship and Tuesday night services at 3500 Spring Garden street in the Powellton Village section of west Philadelphia, PA 19104.
Service time is 11:15 am and all are welcome.

Septa's 31 & 43 buses stop right outside our door. If you're in need of more personal transportation -van service is available. Just call us at 215.909.1388.

Our mission is to honor God by making disciples and planting new churches.
"Go ye therefore and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit..." Matthew 28:19

For the past 28 years we have actively participated in the maintenance, upstart and facilitation of new ministries within our city's most vulnerable communities.
To date we have planted, re-planted, co-planted and provided meeting space for more than (11) separate ministries.

The Lord has given our pastor the vision to continuously move our personal lives and ministry to "Higher Ground" and we readily accept the challenge.

Thank you for your ongoing prayers and support. 

If you are a student of God's Word, a disciple-maker and possess a missional worldview, we are looking for you.

Our goal at ETM is to actively fulfill our role in the Great Commission of Christ through Evangelism, Education and the Edification of the body of Christ.

If you are unable to physically visit us we solicit your daily prayers. We believe prayer is still the most effective strategy for deliverance and victory over the trials and temptations of life. "...the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much." (James 5:16, NKJV).
