BGA Church began as a church plant of Spirit & Truth Fellowship, a Christian Reformed Church in the Hunting Park section of Philadelphia, in November of 2004. It started as a bible study reaching out to young people in high school and college. In May 2005, BGA Church started meeting in a building in the Frankford area of Philadelphia at 4730 Oxford Avenue. In 2010 Pastor Gabriel and his family moved into the Frankford area to live and serve there.
In 2015 the congregation of BGA began leasing the “Social Hall” of the Frankford Memorial United Methodist Church on 1300 Dyre Street. And in 2022 they began using the sanctuary upstairs as they began to grow and reach their community.
Through the power of Jesus Christ, BGA Church transforms lives by loving and serving our Frankford and Northwood neighbors. We are a diverse community that values the talents and creativity of every person.
Our vision is to be a welcoming church that helps people become rooted in Christ, fruitful disciples, and future leaders. We are a safe haven for the broken to be transformed through the joy of knowing and following Jesus. As we show Christ’s love, families will be restored and our community will experience renewal.
