Who we are

The Upper Room is a new church in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

park-prayerWe do not exist for our own members. Our goal is to be a body of believers dedicated to the growth of the Kingdom of God.

We participate in God’s mission to the world by calling new people into relationship with Jesus Christ, equipping them as disciples for ministry, and sending them into the world in mission.

To live out this purpose, we believe that God has called us to be a cross-cultural, sacramental, and missional community:

Cross-cultural: As a congregation, we seek to be cross-cultural, including people “from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb.” (Rev. 7:9-10) At the heart of being a cross-cultural community is building relationships with people different from ourselves.

Sacramental: We seek to be a community that takes a holistic approach to discipleship, engaging both the mind and the senses, particularly by lifting up the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

Missional: We seek to participate in Christ’s mission of redeeming the world in all facets of our lives.
