Our Purpose

The Folcroft Union Church has been proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ since 1926. Our doctrine comes directly from the inspired Word of God, the Bible and our main focus is the salvation and hope that is found by God’s grace through faith in Jesus.

This statement with the acronym of the word “BREAD” is a summary of who we are as a church and what we believe God has called us to be.

Bringing people to Jesus lends the idea of telling this world the good news about Jesus. He died for our sins and was raised by God to be a living Savior.


Reaching out in love brings us to explore the many ministries that occur through our congregation. Whether through worship, special interest groups, fun activities, Lighthouse Ministries or community involvement, each ministry is dedicated to fulfill God’s mission for the church to be light in a dark world.

Exalting God has to do with our worship of the living God. Every Sunday morning as we gather for corporate worship. Each week is uniquely designed to involve every participant in uplifting worship, fellowship and interaction with God’s Word, the Bible.

Assembling with His family is the fellowship that we enjoy as a church family. Whether in the various services, or through social activities, events or other ministries, we focus on unity, sharing and friendship.

Discipling His people wraps up the purposes of why the Folcroft Union Church exists. We desire to encourage growth and accountability in our spiritual development. Therefore, small groups are an intricate part of this ministry and they meet regularly and are flexible to changes or adjustments as group needs and interests are identified.
