Living with Jesus, Loving like Jesus, and Leading Others to Do the Same
The invitation of Jesus is to become his disciple and follow his way of life. At Hershey Free Church, we define it this way: A disciple is someone who lives with Jesus, loves like Jesus, and leads others to do the same.
We are a community of people learning to love and follow Jesus Christ. We are all on the same journey, but none of our paths look exactly the same. We make mistakes. We grow. We encourage one another. We do life together. Whether you are exploring Christianity or you have been a follower of Christ for years—we hope your faith will be strengthened and your interest in God’s Word will grow through your time at our church. Check out our statement of faith, core values, and staff.
