Know Their Stories / Church Plants / Redeeming Grace Church of Nazareth, Pennsylvania

Pastor Matt Fortunato

I had been listening to and learning from Anchored in Truth’s broadcasts and resources since 2007. In 2014 I was able to attend the True Church Conference on “The Spirit-Empowered Church.” About a month later I requested information about Anchored in Truth’s church planting process via the web page and they took it from there. Pastor Steve McAlister set up a phone conference with me within a month and set the course for building a relationship that would lead to a church plant.

We had been praying for years to be a part of a healthy, biblical ministry and under the leadership of healthy, biblical eldership. God answered these prayers by bringing us into partnership with Grace Life Church of the Shoals. We were commissioned at the 2015 True Church Conference and began the work in August that year. We began with a Sunday night Bible study in our home. Our focus was on the fact that a biblical church must be a church deeply and consistently devoted to obeying the Great Commission.

Entering 2016 we have seen God’s hand of providence in the ministry. He has given us a small but unified and servant-hearted core team to continue to move forward for the Gospel. Redeeming Grace Church of Nazareth is in seed form, but we have the Spirit, and life, and truth. And we are resting in God to bear fruit.
