About Us

We are a group of people from all walks of life striving to work together in unity (Eph 4:3) as we fulfill the Great Commission of Christ (Matt 28:18-20). Our church is filled with people from all walks of life. Join us as we strive to impact the world by loving God, one another and all the people around us.


What to expect on Sundays

We start off by singing, take communion, and offer a bible-centered message. We also offer opportunities to give financially.


What to wear

Many of our people like to dress up but just as many prefer to dress down either way you’ll be in company.




Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. – Psalm 127:1

To  build a church that reflects the Love of Christ (Jn 13:34-35) in Delaware and the surrounding areas. We are asking questions about what really works in connecting people with God and trying new ideas. We are building a church that we do not have to suffer through but that truly makes us come alive!


The Mercado’s moved to Delaware in November of 2012 to lead and help the Delaware church grow into a dynamic and healthy church. For decades they have both successfully served in the full-time ministry leading growing churches in NYC, Philadelphia in addition to overseeing missionary work in the Caribbean and across the U.S. Because they are bi-lingual the Mercado’s have also impacted thousands of people in both English and Spanish.


Marcos has devoted his life to the full-time ministry since 1992 and Amarillis since 1996. Answering the call to serve they moved from NYC to Philadelphia in 2007 and after serving for 5 years in Philadelphia they felt called by God to move to Delaware. They are the 1st full-time ministry couple to lead the Delaware church. The church has already witnessed amazing change and growth under their leadership.


The Mercados have been married for over 18 years and are the proud parents of two beautiful children Lillian (15) and Matthew (12). You can currently hear Marcos use his seasoned experience and his passion for people on the airwaves as he hosts the popular Radio One program “Marriage Beyond the Vows”, broadcasted on 103.9FM (Philadelphia, Delaware and Southern NJ). www.praisephilly.com












Our teen ministry is made up of teens from New Castle, Cecil and Chester counties in Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania.  We hold Friday night or Saturday afternoon devotionals to strengthen our relationships with God and one another.  It is our goal to develop our own relationships and convictions, separate from our parents, as we become young adults.
