PLANNING A VISIT
WHAT TO WEAR
Welcome to Philadelphia City of Praise Baptist Church in the historic Germantown section of North Philadelphia where our pastor is Rev. Dr. A. Carl Prince.
Worship at One
Our hour of worship is 1:00 p.m. each Sunday and we worship in a massive, modern mega church.
Worship begins with a time of worshipers connecting with God through a blend of traditional and contemporary praise and worship where worshipers are welcome to praise and worship God in their own way.
There is traditionally an opening period of scripture, prayer and praise to God and a 20-30-minute contemporary preaching sermon followed by congregational prayer and the benediction.
There is no special dress code for our church worship services. All are welcome to come as you are.
Philadelphia City of Praise offers the convenience of gated church parking at 1:00 p.m.
