The Purpose

Why Come To The Altar

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 NIV

We are the Church!

As the Church we are God’s house. The Spirit of God graciously filled his temple at Pentecost to live among us and lead us. This Pentecost Christ-followers from across the Tri-State Area are gathering in Philadelphia to ask for a mighty move of God right now!

When the diverse Body of Christ comes together in love and prayer we are able to learn and experience more of Jesus together, and we tend to see God respond with amazing answers to our prayers. Let’s Come to the Altar together this Pentecost Sunday: “Holy Spirit move in our hearts and produce your fruit in our lives!”

What is Pentecost?

Just before Jesus ascended to heaven, He instructed his disciples to wait in Jerusalem until they received the power of the Holy Spirit.  For ten days, a diverse group of 120 gathered at the altar of the Lord in the Upper Room.  There, they laid down their differences, agendas, failures and grievances until they came into one accord.  When the day of Pentecost had fully come, fire fell upon those assembled at this altar as the Holy Spirit filled the living sacrifices.  Those who had previously denied Jesus became bold witnesses to Him, and unification lead to multiplication as 3,000 were added to the Church.


Jesus’ invitation to the altar of the Upper Room extends to us today.  If we will humble ourselves, and lean into His Spirit, He will unify us, and give us power to be His witnesses that turn our communities upside down.  Join believers from all over the Tri-State area in Philadelphia on Pentecost Sunday as together, we respond to this call to seek an outpouring of His Spirit through prayer and repentance at the altar. 


Pentecost is the moment when God’s glory filled his temple, the Church. The Spirit came to live among us and lead us. We are gathering in Philadelphia to ask for a mighty move of God right now!

What are we praying for? 

In a time of cultural division, unrest, and confusion, it is vital that the Church comes together with unified hearts to seek the Lord in prayer. We are coming to ask the Holy Spirit to bring us to repentance, to bring us to a place of unity, and to bring about a great move of revival in the Church and gospel awakening in our region.

What should I expect? 

This will not largely be about prayer from the stage. This will be a day for prayer from the chairs. There will be individual times of quiet reflection and personal prayer, prayer huddles, prayers in groups, and corporate prayer altogether. Worship and scripture will frame our times of prayer throughout the evening.”

Why the Altar?

There was an old testament altar. For us as New Testament People of God there is also an altar. It is the cross of Jesus. We come together at that altar confessing our brokenness, praising God for his mercy, and asking for the power of the Gospel to break out among us bringing healing to relationships, unity to God’s people, and homecoming to the lost and wandering. 

”Send me Your light and Your faithful care, let them lead me;
let them bring me to Your holy mountain, to the place where You dwell. Then I will go to the altar of God, to God, my joy and my delight.“

Psalm 43:3-4
