Baptist Convention of Pennsylvania-South Jersey


Why Plant a Church in Our Soil?

  • Out of 16 million people living in Pennsylvania and South Jersey, there are nearly 12 million that do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ!
  • At present, this total area has an estimated 3% evangelical population.
  • There are 6 million households in PA/SJ that need to hear the gospel.
  • It is possible that 40% or more of the communities across our convention have no evangelical presence in them whatsoever
  • This dilemma reveals that it will take approximately 120,000 new evangelical churches to reach these people who do not know Jesus Christ.
  • Every 5 minutes someone in PA/SJ dies without a relationship with Jesus Christ; That's 12 people every hour that will spend an eternity in hell, an eternity separated from God.
