Deliverance Baptist Church

812 Swissvale Ave., on the corner with Ross Ave.

A Deliverance Baptist Church Facebook page quotes a defintion of peacemaker, “Marking a moment in your life where you’ve felt the unexplainable peace of God that makes you feel complete and whole” and offers this suggestion, “God gives us peace markers for our situations. Hold on to those moments. Write them down. Keep them close to your heart. Peace from God is unlike anything else.”

The church building is close to being a miracle. The Ross Avenue United Methodist Episcopal Church first met at the new building with the beautiful stained glass windows in 1906. It was constructed very close to Swissvale Avenue. With the widening of Swissvale Avenue in 1927, the building could no longer be at that location. The church was moved in from Swissvale. To hold together over the moving is an indication of how well the church was built.
