The CHURCH of PHILADELPHIA
Joyce D'Amato Caporale
Elder & Lead Worshipper
In the late 1990’s, I was seeking a Bible-teaching church. The moment I walked into The Church Of Philadelphia, Pastor Carmine DiBiase greeted me with; “ Welcome, this is your Father’s house.” I knew I was home. From the very beginning, Pastor DiBiase’s sermons came right from the Word of God and I hungered for more. Soon after, our worship leader was moving outside the area and the church was in need of someone to replace her. Being a singer and knowing the current worship leader, made it easy for her to suggest that I may be a possible replacement. As I slowly moved into the position, with the guidance of Pastor DiBiase, I realized that God had prepared a place for me. There is nothing more fulfilling than to praise and worship our God in song. Along with our choir and musicians, we have worked together in unity, not to make us perfect, but to worship in Spirit for the glory and honor of God.
Over the past 20 years, under Pastor DiBiase’s teachings, no words can describe how he has changed my life by his commitment to serving The Lord. He never gets tired of doing all things decent and in order for God. As I look into the future, The Church of Philadelphia will remain strong because of the solid foundation that has been made over the years. Through prayer and obedience to the leading of the Holy Spirit, all being in one accord, God’s approval will be upon us. I have been given a gift! A gift of a dedicated Pastor and a multi-cultured church family that truly loves Christ.
