About Church of the Saviour

Church of the Saviour is a nondenominational Christ-centered church of approximately 1,500 people in the Philadelphia suburb of Wayne, Pennsylvania. We are called by Jesus Christ to penetrate the lives of people in our community (and beyond) to the glory of God. We take the Great Commission and the Great Commandment seriously, and actively support local outreach & global missions. We have personally experienced the Good News of Jesus Christ and now count it both an extreme privilege and responsibility to be ministers of reconciliation to a lost and hurting world. We depend on the Holy Spirit to enable and empower us to fulfill God’s plan for our lives and our church. We are certain that Christ is supreme in all things and know we are most fully alive and fulfilled when most fully glorifying the Lord.
