Dr. Wesley Pinnock founded the True Light Fellowship Church when he heard the call of God to leave Deliverance Evangelistic Church in 1995 with the objective in mind to do God's will.
He followed God's call, not knowing what to expect and not expecting approximately 300 people from the Deliverance congregation to follow and ask him to be their pastor! In the providence of God, however, Dr. Pinnock received an offer from The New Covenant Church of Philadelphia, which had purchased a larger facility, to acquire their former building at Ardleigh and Johnson Streets in the East Mt. Airy section of the city. Throughout these struggles, Dr. Pinnock emphasized the Lord's leading to leave Deliverance. He was in the will of God and doing what God had called him to do. With regard to resources, True Light has relied upon the fact that if God has called them to do ministry, then He will provide the necessary means - a belief that was amply demonstrated in the provision of a facility! In addition to lessons learned from experience, Dr. Pinnock also stresses the importance of freedom in worship, expressing love for God in relationship with Him. Dr. Pinnock believes in the concept of holistic ministry; that is to say, he believes that discipleship is an important outgrowth of salvation in the development of maturity in Christ. True Light aims to minister to the family, especially nurturing its young people to develop spiritually. Followers practice their discipleship by rehabbing homes for the needy, participating in the feeding program for the homeless ministry, and by providing tutoring programs, employment and various other types of counseling to the community-at-large. Dr. Pinnock is not afraid to acknowledge that a church can easily become a closed society. His primary objective for his church is that it reaches out to the alienated. He believes that Christ can make the difference, and maintains that the main purpose of the church is to impact the community positively. His belief is in line with Christ's words in Luke: "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty all them that are bruised. . . ." Luke 4:18 (KJV) Thus, according to the Lord's teaching, the church needs to make a difference in the community especially among the disenfranchised. Dr. Pinnock's vision is that True Light's mission be to win the lost to Christ; to nurture newfound believers and to help them develop into productive children of God; to help believers grow and walk closer to Christ, and to multiply themselves. The church's ecclesiastical structure is seen as an extension of Christ, with some 45 ministries of the church functioning to meet the spiritual and other needs of all people. Teaching and making disciples are the key components: and church members' gifts are identified and put to use in carrying out the various ministries. The church is governed by a board of teaching and ruling elders and laity under the direction of the pastor. Dr. Pinnock's vision also includes following the New Testament model of church planting through multiplication. The goal is to reproduce congregations in order to impact other neighborhoods in the city and to conduct missions around the world. To that end, church planting is one of the goals of this ministry. True Light is an international congregation comprised of members originally from Africa, the West Indies, India, Indonesia, and England. Dr. Pinnock has a vision to plant churches via multiplication as the church grows and matures. TLFC's FUTURE VISION AND GOAL The congregation has quickly grown and continues to grow at a tremendous rate as a result of the powerful teaching of the Word of God, which affects members in such a positive way that they invite others to come. The church does not actively recruit, nor has Dr. Pinnock ever recruited, anyone to join the church.
