Challenge Press/Book Heaven

Book Heaven and Challenge Press are vital ministries of our church. In the early ’80s, Book Heaven was begun to provide resources for our members. From a small table in the back of the old auditorium, to a full-fledged retail store, Book Heaven has grown to provide books, music, Bibles, and Bible Study tools to pastors, laymen, and missionaries around the world who do not otherwise have access to these resources. One of our most purchased books is “The Trail of Blood.” Our store in Emmaus is open Monday through Friday from 9AM until 5PM, and also after Wednesday and Sunday Services.

Challenge Press was acquired in 1998 and publishes, reprints, and distributes over 150 titles of distinctively Baptist publications worldwide. Click here for a list of the materials specifically published by Challenge Press. In 2008, Challenge Press and Book Heaven merged into one publishing and retail ministry while retaining the Challenge Press name.

Children & Youth Ministry

Children are an important part of our ministry here at Lehigh Valley Baptist Church and we desire to meet the needs of every age group. From newborn to two years old, we have a clean nursery staffed with competent ladies to take care of your baby. Junior church for the two and three year olds is provided during each service. For the 4’s & 5’s, we have Junior church on Sunday mornings and King’s Kubs on Wednesday nights.

There are graded Sunday School classes for all ages and Master Club programs on Wednesday nights for those in 1st – 6th grades. In addition, Vacation Bible School is a highlight of every summer!

Not to be left out, the teenagers of LVBC enjoy many activities on a regular basis. They also participate in summer and winter youth camps as well as missions’ trips – both at home and abroad. You can view their continuously updated blog by clicking the button below.

Lehigh Valley Baptist Bible Institute

Lehigh Valley Baptist Bible Institute is dedicated to the principle that the local church is God’s organization for the equipping of the preacher and the layman alike for the work of the ministry. Here at LVBBI we are prepared to offer Biblical academic instruction for the man preparing for the pastoral ministry, church-planting ministry, or missionary work; or for the lady who desires to prepare herself for appropriate ministry, or simply further her education. Our programs offer a convenient schedule of comprehensive Bible courses coupled with opportunities for practical involvement in various church ministries. It is ideal for men or women preparing for the ministry. For others who simply want to further their Bible knowledge for the purpose of service in the local church, we offer a less demanding laymen’s program.

Lehigh Valley Baptist Bible Institute is distinctively Baptist in theology and practice. We believe the Bible is able to fully meet the needs of every individual. We do not apologize for the “faith once delivered to the saints.” If you desire to be trained to better serve the Lord as a layman or to prepare for a full-time ministry, you should consider Lehigh Valley Baptist Bible Institute.

An individualized, instructional program called Accelerated Christian Education is used at EBA and is supplemented with Saxon math classes, as well as high school Bible and science classes.

Our desire is to assist parents in their God-given responsibility to train their children to be conformed to the image of Christ.

Missions

Here at Lehigh Valley Baptist Church, we believe that one of our primary responsibilities is to share with people around the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In addition to several families that are sent out from our church, we also support a number of other like-minded missionaries sent from local, New Testament Baptist churches.

Grace & Honor

Grace & Honor was designed to promote Biblical living for today’s Christian Woman. Our desire for this publication is two-fold: (1) that ladies would be encouraged and edified in their daily walk with the Lord and (2) they would be strengthened in their God-given roles as wives, mothers, daughters, and servants of the Lord Jesus Christ.
