About the Ministry

Learn about our work

Eglise Evangelique De La Renaissance - Christian Counseling Ministries is more than a church.  It's a place of healing.

A Brief Overview

Eglise Evangelique De La Renaissance - Christian Counseling Ministries, Inc. is the Haitian non-denominational church of the Poconos located in Swiftwater, Pennsylvania. The ministry was founded in 2006 by Senior Pastor Serge Jean-Pierre. After watching the Lord work in a few years, the Swiftwater property was acquired.

The mission of the ministry is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ without compromise in our community and to lend a helping hand to all those who are in need. In 2009, the ministry received 501(c) non-profit status from the Internal Revenue Service. This strategic move has allowed us to move forward to achieve our vision effectively. Through our ministries, including the Swiftwater Food Pantry, we are fulfilling our mission.

As the Lord continues to give life and strength to this ministry, we will continue to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ without compromise and lend a helping hand to all who are in need of help. 

What We Believe

In The Triune God (The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit). and In the Deity Of Jesus Christ...In the Divine Person Of The Holy Spirit, who convinces the world of righteousness, sins, judgment.

He automatically baptizes all true Christians into the body of Christ at the very moment of conversion; seals them until the day of redemption...In Creation (of everybody and of all that exist) by God.

In the verbal, plenary Inspiration of the Bible: The Word Of God. That All Men Are Sinners (by birth, nature, choice...) and need to be saved by Jesus Christ. In Salvation By Grace; that is through faith in Jesus Christ only.

In The Eternal Security (of Salvation) of every true Christian In Two Special Ordinances: Water Baptism and The Lord Supper. In Water Baptism By Immersion In The Name Of The Father, and The Son, and The Holy Spirit that must follow confession of faith of the repentant sinner in Jesus as God-Savior. In The Great Commission as a priority. In Marriage as a legal union of one (1) man and one (1) woman, for as long as both shall live.

That Men And Woman Are Equal In Christ, yet with different roles at home and at the local church. That Only Jesus Gives The Power To Become Children Of God, and only to those who believe in Him and receive Him as their savior; even though we are all God's creatures that are the object of His universal love.

In The Return Of Jesus that is imminent, pre-tribulational, literal, pre-millennial for the rapture of His redeemed ones. That Hell Is A God-Prepared, Literal, Unquenchable Lake Of Fire for the eternal destiny of the devil, his angels, and all those who die without Jesus. That Heaven Is A God-Prepared, literal Place where all (living or already dead) Christians will go to live with Jesus at the rapture.
