The Two-fold Purpose of Maranatha Ministries
Our purpose is to provide programs that will strengthen and encourage the families and leadership of local churches.
We also want to exhibit a living testimony of our prayer-answering God.
“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves them who are crushed in spirit.” -Psalms 34:18
From early on in the ministry, we have been committed both to remaining debt-free and to allowing God to touch those who should have a part financially in this ministry.
The transformed lives and beautiful facilities speak of the faithful and unchanging God we serve. Just as the Lord has provided in the past for us and others, He will provide in the future. Have you yielded your life to Him? (Romans 5:8 and 6:23)
As our sign says, “To God be the glory” for all He has provided over the last 34 years here at Maranatha!
Maranatha … where you are “served like company and treated like home-folk”
As a biblically based year round retreat center, we seek to strengthen New England churches by providing programs for church leadership and the family. It’s our goal to help you connect with God and each other in a relaxed safe environment. We offer a sanctuary for healing and hope and a rest stop for celebration and fun.
Our Core Values
All of our Christ centered programs proclaim the Gospel and teach a bible-based world view. All staff are born again believers who believe the Bible to be God’s divinely inspired word.
We invite you to join us for a time of renewal, reflection and inspiration.

Statement of Faith
The authoritative, inerrant inspiration of the Scriptures; the Triune God: Father and Son and Holy Spirit; the Personality and Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ; His substitutionary atonement for sin; His bodily resurrection and visible return to earth; the Personality, Deity and Indwelling nature of the Holy Spirit; the necessity of the new birth through faith in Jesus Christ; the security of each believer; the unity of the True Church composed of all who believe in Jesus as Savior; the believer’s life of separation from thought patterns and practices of the world; the supreme mission of proclaiming the Gospel to all the world; the entrance into Heaven upon death for believers, while the souls of the unbelievers remain in misery until the judgment; the reality and personality of Satan.
