What We Believe

OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible written Word of God.


We believe that there is only One God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.


We believe in the blessed Hope, which is the rapture of the Church of God, which is in Christ, at His return.


We believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious Blood of Jesus Christ.


We believe that regeneration by the Holy Ghost is absolutely essential for personal salvation.


We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing for the human body in answer to believing prayer.


We believe that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it.


We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy and separated life in the present world. Amen  

Our Pastor

Rev. Dr. Daren K. Miller

“And it SHALL BE as GOD has Promised!” 

Born and raised in the Memorial Church of God in Christ and COGIC at large, after serving the church in many different capacities, in January 2014, the Lord saw fit to entrust Pastor Miller with the mantle to serve God’s people as the pastor of the landmark Memorial Church of God in Christ, a church with a long and significant historic past in the COGIC body in the State of Pennsylvania.


Pastor Miller, noted Minister of Music and musician, began his musical journey as a child studying classical piano, and for many years performed for the Philadelphia Music Teachers Association’s Annual Classical Concert Recitals, in addition to auditioning with the world-famous Philadelphia and Pottstown Symphony Orchestras.


For countless years, the Lord has allowed Pastor Miller to serve as Minister of Music, pianist, organist, choir director/trainer, producer, songwriter/arranger, and workshop clinician for many churches of various denominations in the Philadelphia and Tri-State areas; as well he has been blessed to have ministered and recorded with many world-renowned Gospel artists, songwriters, singers, musicians, pastors and evangelists.


A magna cum laude graduate of Temple University’s Esther Boyer College of Music, in November 2017, Pastor Miller was bestowed with an honorary Doctorate of Divinity Degree by the St. Thomas Christian University, Jacksonville, FL, for his work in ministry.


Pastor Miller has a heart for God, for souls, and for God's people.  Following his God-given vision for the church, Memorial continues to experience both spiritual and numerical growth, and has implemented several significant initiatives and projects including:

  • Partnership with the American Red Cross and the establishment of community semi-annual blood drives
  • Partnership with Lunch-and-a-Book summer community reading program for children and youth
  • Partnership with Al Anon – a worldwide fellowship that offers a program of recovery for the families and friends of alcoholics
  • Missions partnerships to feed and clothe the homeless and impoverished
  • Establishment of “The Latter Rain” weekly radio broadcast 

Pastor and First Lady Miller are blessed to be the parents of two children, Alanna S. Miller and Darius J. Miller. 

Our First Lady

Evangelist Tasha T. Miller

Evangelist Tasha Stephens-Miller is a native of Trenton, New Jersey.  She was called to ministry early in her life and accepted the call at the age of 18. Knowing that the call on her life was to the area of Evangelism, she was licensed as a minister in 1991 and was then ordained in 1995 by the late Bishop John D. Brown, the Senior Pastor of the Deeper Life Family Worship Center. There, she served faithfully on the ministerial staff, as head of the music department, and conference planning committee member.  From the time that she accepted the call to ministry, the Lord began to open doors for her to travel, ministering to many congregations and leadership.


In 2005, the Lord used Evangelist Miller to birth “Rapture Ready Ministries”.  This ministry uses practical straight forward teaching that causes the believer to mature, ministering to the total man, and to make solid life choices that will determine where he or she will spend eternity.  Understanding her purpose within the body, she is committed to preaching an uncompromised word of deliverance, in order that those whose lives have been transformed by the Power of God may be presented in the day of judgment, as Ephesians 5:27 states, “….[as] a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing but that it should be holy and without blemish”.


Evangelist Miller serves faithfully with her husband, Pastor Daren Miller, in leadership at the Memorial COGIC. Along with serving in multiple ministry capacities at Memorial, one of her greatest joys is being the mother to two beautiful children, Ms. Alanna S. Miller and Master Darius J. Miller.
