Unfailing Love is an inclusive Christian ministry and fellowship in Elizabeth, Pennsylvania, affiliated with the United Christian Church in America and Anthem Network. Please note that this website is currently under revision and construction, and a new and improved Unfailing Love website will be up soon.
Our mission is to spread the message of God’s love for all people, administer the sacraments, spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and develop inclusive Christian community.
Our name comes from Psalm 33:5, “The Lord loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love”. Jesus’ primary teaching was about love: love for God and love for one another (Mark 12:28-31, Matthew 22:34-40, Luke 10:25-28). The Bible reveals that God is love (1 John 4:8), that followers of Jesus are known by their love (John 13:34-35), and that love is the fulfillment of the Scriptures (Matthew 7:12, Romans 13:10, Galatians 5:14, James 2:8).
Unfailing Love is a ministry serving all people. We are a community that is welcoming to all, regardless of anyone’s religious background, political party, race, gender, sexual orientation, or age. We are all one in Christ (1 Corinthians 12:12-14, Galatians 3:26-28, Colossians 3:11).
This website also hosts the Unfailing Love blog, which we use to share ministry news, information, and relevant articles.
Unfailing Love has its roots in a Christian youth fellowship that met in a local high school. After several of the youth fellowship’s members had graduated, a calling was felt for a more open, welcoming, and organic Christian church in the area. The name “Unfailing Love” was adopted as a working title for this ministry. Eventually, the original Unfailing Love was disbanded as people moved on to new places and endeavors.
In June 2017, Unfailing Love was born again as a new ministry under Pastor Kevin Daugherty’s leadership with the support of the United Christian Church in America, under which Unfailing Love is chartered as an independent Christian ministry. In addition, in October 2017, Unfailing Love gained the support of the Anthem Network.
From a technical standpoint, Unfailing Love is an unincorporated religious non-profit association, and we will be seeking incorporation when the appropriate time arises.
Unfailing Love has two primary roles: ministry and fellowship.
As a ministry, we exist to spread the message of God’s love for all people, to build up our supporting organizations, to reach out to others, administer the sacraments, educate Christians and seekers, and to organize a new inclusive church plant in the Elizabeth, PA area.
As a fellowship, we meet regularly to worship, pray, and share in the sacramental experience of Christ together. We exist to provide a worshiping Christian community for all, especially for those who have been excluded from traditional churches for one reason or another.
Unfailing Love currently celebrates the Lord’s Supper as a house-church on Saturdays in the late afternoon/early evening. Please contact the pastor for more information.
