About Messiah Church of York
Messiah Church of York is a newly independent, evangelical church tracing its roots back to the late 1800s and the York Fifth United Brethren Church. It was under the UB umbrella that the current facility was constructed and opened in 1959. After the formation of the United
Methodist Church in 1968, the name was changed from Fifth to Messiah. In 2023, the church
ended its affiliation with the United Methodist denomination and now operates as an
independent church. The church has seen many generations since it first started and has been a beacon on the hill in North York Borough, York, Pennsylvania for many years. We have over 200 members with about 100-125 regularly participating in weekly services and online. The church is active in the community through relationships with a local elementary school, summer kids camp and more. We have partnered with the borough and other nearby churches for family activities and with the Lebanon Cemetery board of directors to assist in the revitalization of a historic African American cemetery that borders our property. Our current mission statement is “To KNOW Christ, to GROW in Christ and to SHOW Christ ” and we are excited to see God working in the people of the church as we strive to live out this mission. Now as Messiah Church of York, we are praying that God will lead the right candidate to us to shepherd our congregation as we trust Him and step out in faith, keeping our eyes on our Lord and Savior. We look forward to talking with you about this opportunity and to answering any of your questions as you prayerfully consider joining Messiah Church.
