Our History

In March of 1998, under the leadership of the Lehigh Valley Baptist Church, a group of believers began meeting for Bible Studies on Friday nights in Pottsville. Almost two years later, with the support of Lehigh Valley Baptist Church, Haven Baptist Church held its first services on June 6, 1999. Ever since then there has been a Bible-believing church spreading the light of the Gospel in Schuylkill County.

Our Purpose

Our purpose as a church is to fulfill the great commission that Jesus Christ gave the church just before He returned to heaven: Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsover I have commanded you. (Matthew 28:19-21) In Mark 16:15 the church is commanded to Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Through our various ministries and missions we seek to tell people about the good news of the gospel.

Our Beliefs

Several other important distinctives and beliefs of Haven Baptist Church are listed below:


We are not Calvinists nor Arminian. We believe the Bible teaches that men cannot save themselves but they can, under the convicting power of the Holy Spirit, call upon Jesus Christ to save them.


We belong to no denominational group nor do we associate with the World Council of Churches, the National Council of Churches, the charismatic movement or any other other apostate group. We believe personal separation from worldliness is vital for a truly dedicated Christian walk.


We are not evolutionists. We believe God created the world in six literal days and rested the seventh, as recorded in the Genesis account.


We believe the saved will spend eternity in heaven; a place of everlasting joy, peace, and rest. The lost will spend eternity in hell; a place of everlasting fire, torment and hopelessness.
