Welcome to the online home of Christ Evangelical Congregational Church in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Christ Church was birthed in 2007 by the merger of Grace Worship Center of Whitehall and Boulevard Evangelical Congregational Church of Allentown. We have "come together to grow together." Now we seek to "grow together to serve together." We welcome you to join us as we uphold a biblically-based ministry that promotes worship, fellowship, Christ-like development, teaching and evangelism opportunities so that we may know Him and make Him known throughout our community and the world.

"So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness." Colossians 2:6-7
