We meet twice a week to visit the communities surrounding Bible Baptist Church.
We meet at 6:30pm on Tuesday nights to visit in the homes of the guests that have attended our church services.
We try to encourage our guests by praying with them and answering questions they may have about Spiritual Matters.
Many of our current members were first reached during this time of visitation.
We meet at 10:00am on Saturday mornings to preach the Gospel and distribute Gospel literature door-to-door in the neighborhoods and surrounding communities. There is no more fulfilling ministry than preaching the Gospel one-on-one and explaining the Love of Jesus Christ to someone who desires to hear how they can be made right with God through repentance and faith.
There are many other special outreach opportunities that our church members have opportunity to engage in throughout the year. We have many wonderful opportunities to be involved in our community.
Some of the outreach opportunites are:
Every Wednesday night we get together and pray for one another, including our friends, family, church, and country. After the time of prayer we have a Bible study. We usually go through the passages in an entire book of the Bible and we learn how to apply these truths to our lives. This hour allows us to learn the clear message of each of the books of the Bible, but also apply those messages to our lives. The Wednesday night Bible study starts at 7:00pm.
Each Thursday night we have a Bible study. We get together at one of our member's home and eat a meal. Then we study a passage of scripture. This Bible study is an open forum where questions are asked and discussed. The meeting really helps our members to fellowship together and grow in the Lord. These Meetings are at changing times and places each week, so please ask about where and when this Bible is meeting and you can be placed on the list of contacts that receive notification.
Jesus used the discipleship model for training His followers. We believe that His method is the best method. We take time to teach new converts or young Christians about the doctrine of the Bible in this Biblical way. If you are interested in one on one discipleship then please email or call Pastor Cuozzo. The Scheduling is flexible.
The B.I.B.L.E. class or the "Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth" class is for adults young and old. It is taught by Jim Lyons, who has been a faithful member at Bible Baptist for over 40 years. This class has an emphasis on taking the truth of scripture into our daily walk with the Lord. This approach helps us live the Christian life as it is taught in the Word of God. If you are interested in learning more about how to live the Christian life then please come join us!
The foundations class is taught by Tom & Carol Boyd. They have enjoyed teaching this class together since 2010. They started with only one class member and have seen much growth. There are discussions each week concerning the many issues that are faced when trying to live a faithful Christian life in today's world. Examples Include: "Being a First Century Church in the 21st Century," "The Joy of Church Membership in a Non-Commital Society," and "God's plan for Gospel Preaching to a crowd of Don't-Judge-Me Sinners." This class has an open forum where questions are encouraged. We find the answers to our questions about life and faith in the Scriptures. If you have some questions and would like some answers, then please join the Foundations class!
The class focuses on helping the young people. Youth are an important part of the membership at Bible Baptist and the decisions that they are making now, will effect the rest of their lives. This class is taught by Mark Bullock. He is a gifted teacher who strives to sound a clear warning about the dangers of sin and the joy and fulfillment that comes from loving and living for God in your youth. If you have a godly passion for heading into adulthood with purpose and grace then please join the Young Ambassadors class.
This class is for children in fourth grade through the sixth grade. The class is taught by Shirley Barkelow & Andrea Boyd. They help our children understand the stories of the Bible and how God gave us the stories of the lives of people in past generations for us to learn and apply to our lives today. The children will learn to follow the Lord, and to ask the Lord for His guidance each day. If you are a child that loves to learn, then please join the Junior Faith Detectives class.
The Sonbeamers class is taught by Uni Sochia & Ellen Eavner. The class focuses on teaching children about the great stories of the Bible. Your child will learn the Bible stories from Genesis to Revelation and get to meet other children their age. Please join this class to gain a solid foundation for growing in a life of godliness.
We love to study God’s Word, and we have classes for Adults and Children on Sunday Morning at 9:15am. In this ministry teachers take the time to teach our children the content of Scripture. The Lessons will teach all the Bible stories and the chronology of the Bible, By the time a child leaves this program, he will learn: the books of the Bible, how to find all sixty-six books, and all the main stories of the Bible.
This program meets at 6:30 pm on Wednesday Nights and teaches the children the core doctrine of our faith. The materials the children go through will help them memorize the Word of God, do their daily devotions, and learn Biblical doctrine. By the time a child leaves this program, he will have learned: all the verses that are important to have memorized and all the doctrine that defines our faith.
While the main worship service is going on upstairs, the children’s ministry director is teaching the children in what we call “Junior Church.” They have their very own service with songs, preaching, ushers and everything, but it is all done by the children and on their level. The children are taught how to walk with God and how to be a Godly person. By actively worshipping and serving in their own services, the children are learning and preparing to come into the main service. The Bible Lessons will teach children to have the character of Christ and attempt to illustrate these traits through the lives of Godly men, women and children who lived in Bible times and Modern Times. By the time a child leaves this program, he will have learned: all the Godly character traits and fruit of the Spirit taught in Scripture. In essence, they will have learned how to serve and worship God in spirit and in truth; in addition they will also learn how to lead a church service.
This program will teach our children the reasons we believe, what we believe. The material the children will go through will help them combat the lies that they will face when they stand for the truth. By the time a child leaves this program, he will have learned: the evidence that supports their faith and the weakness of the lies.
Rev. Wallace B. Johnson was considering 3 places to start a church. Atlantic City, Tom's River and New Egypt. He came to New Egypt for ice cream and saw a building on Main Street for rent. Encouraged by his wife, Pastor Johnson decided to rent the building. On Mother's Day of May of 1966, New Egypt Chapel was started. Located at 3 Main Street, New Egypt.
In the early 1970's a building was purchased at 8 Magnolia Ave. Renovations needed to be done, which took several years. The new building was dedicated on October 9, 1977.
Pastor Johnson suffered an aneurysm in 1975 but continued to pastor the church. He passed away in 1979.
Pastor John Swearinger was called as Pastor in April of 1981. During his ministry, the church changed its name to Bible Baptist Church. Additional property (8 acres) was also purchased on Lakewood Road.
Pastor Stephen Beverly was called to the church in 1999 and during his ministry, a parsonage was constructed on the property on Lakewood Road and many more improvements were made. In addition, Pastor Beverly and his wife Denise, along with their children: Karrie, Joshua, Sarah, and Katelynn, tirelessly and faithfully served the members of Bible Baptist Church, the community of New Egypt, and surrounding townships for over 11 years, leading countless souls to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.Pastor Dominick Cuozzo was called as Pastor on February 21st, 2010 and officially began ministering as of March 1st, 2010. The Church Family and the Cuozzo Family are both very excited about what the Lord has begun to do and what He will continue to do as we follow Him. TIMELINE

We are blessed to have folks from all over Central New Jersey studying the Bible with us! We have had folks from New Egypt, Cookstown, Wrightstown, Juliustown, Jacobstown, North Hanover Township, Springfield, Columbus, Mansfield, Chesterfield, Westampton, Eastampton, Hainesport, Mt Holly, Jobstown, Pemberton, Pemberton Township, Plumsted, Plumsted Township, Cream Ridge, Upper Freehold, Freehold, Polhemustown, Allentown, Imlaystown, Cassville, Jackson, Lakehurst, Manchester, Manchester Township, Whiting, Browns Mills, Fort Dix, McGuire AFB, Joint Base MDL, Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst.
We believe the Bible, consisting of the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments to be verbally inspired, inerrant, and the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. We believe God gave the words of Holy Scripture by inspiration and without error. God promised that He would preserve His Word; Jesus said, “But my words shall not pass away”–Matthew 24:35. We believe that God has kept that promise by preserving His infallible Word to every generation. We teach, preach, study, memorize and meditate on God’s Word. We use the King James Bible as our translation of the Word of God and believe it to be the Word of God for the English speaking people. It shall be the official and only translation used by the church. We use it with confidence, believing that it accurately shows forth the inspired and infallible words of God that were given in the Hebrew and Greek languages. We believe the Bible is the sole and final authority for faith and life. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:20-21, Matthew 5:18; 24:35, Psalm 12: 6-7)
We believe in one Triune God, as revealed in the Bible, eternally existing in three persons–Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are identical in nature (one in essence), but distinct in person and function. They have the same attributes and perfections. (Deuteronomy 6:4; II Corinthians 13:14, Genesis 1:26, Isaiah 6:8; 48:16-17, Matthew 3:16-17, John 14:16-17)
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men (John 1:1-2, 14; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 9:6; 7:14; Philippians 2:5-8; Galatians 4:4-5).
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His finished work on the cross as a representative, vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice; and that our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead (Romans 3:24-25; I Peter 2:24; Ephesians 1:7; I Peter 1:3-5).
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven, and is now exalted at the right hand of God, where, as our High Priest, He fulfills the ministry of Representative, Intercessor, and Advocate (Acts 1:9-10; Hebrews 9:24, 7:25; Romans 8:34; I John 2:1-2).
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a Person who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; and that He is the Supernatural Agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption (John 16:8-11; II Corinthians 3:6; I Corinthians 12:12-14; Romans 8:9; Ephesians 1:13-14).
We believe that He is the Divine Teacher who assists believers to understand and appropriate the Scriptures and that it is the privilege and duty of all saved to be filled with the Spirit. (1 Corinthians 2:9-16; Ephesians 1:17-18, 5:18; 1 John 2:20, 27).
We believe that God is sovereign in the bestowal of spiritual gifts to every believer. God uniquely uses evangelists, pastors, and teachers to equip believers in the assembly in order that they can do the work of the ministry. (Romans 12:3-8; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11, 28; Ephesians 4:7-12)
We believe that the sign gifts of the Holy Spirit, such as speaking spontaneously in other languages to preach the gospel(tongues) and the gift of healing, were temporary. These sign gifts ceased when the New Testament was completed (1 Corinthians 13). They were foundational in nature, temporary in time, and were given to authenticate the message and men of God during the introduction of the New Covenant to the Jewish people. (I Corinthians 1:22, 13:8; 14:21-22).
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but the spiritual death which is separation from God, and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature and are now sinners by choice, and therefore, under just condemnation to eternal ruin without defense or excuse. Man is totally depraved and, of himself, utterly unable to remedy his lost condition. (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 1:20; 3:22-23, 5:12-21; 1 Corinthians 2:14: Ephesians 2:1-3, 12, 4:17- 19).
We believe that salvation is a gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in Jesus Christ, not earned by the works of men, but paid in full by the finished work of Jesus whose precious blood was shed on Calvary’s cross and whose resurrection seals for all who will receive the forgiveness of their sins. We believe that all sins, (except blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, which is the sin of not turning to Christ for salvation through repentance and faith while under the conviction of the Holy Spirit) are forgivable (Ephesians 2:8-10; John 1:12; I Peter 1:18-19, Matthew 12:31-32).
We believe that eternal life is a present possession for all those who claim the promises of Christ. We believe that all the redeemed are kept by God’s power and are secure in Christ forever. We believe it is a privilege of the believer to rejoice in the assurance of their salvation through the testimony of God’s Word, which forbids the use of Christian liberty as an occasion to the flesh. (John 6:37-40, 10:27-30; Romans 8:1, 38-39; I Corinthians 1:4-8; I Peter 1:4-5; Jude 1, 2).
We believe that the Scriptures interpreted in their natural, literal sense reveal divinely determined dispensations or rules of life which define man’s responsibilities in successive ages. These dispensations are not ways of salvation, but rather are divinely ordered stewardships by which God directs man according to His purpose. Three of these dispensations—the law, the church, and the kingdom—are the subjects of detailed revelation in Scripture. (Genesis 1:28; 1 Corinthians 9:17; 2 Corinthians 3:9-18; Galatians 3:13-25; Ephesians 1:10; 3:2-10; Colossians 1:24-25, 27; Revelation 20:2-6).
We believe that the local Church, which is the body and the espoused bride of Christ, is solely made up of born-again, baptized by immersion persons , that have voluntarily joined themselves together for the purposes of worship, work, fellowship, observance of the ordinances, and the spread of the Gospel to all the world; and having two offices: pastor and deacon. (1 Corinthians 12:12-14; 2 Corinthians 11:2; Ephesians 1:22-23; 5:25-27; Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8, 2:41-42, 10:47-48; Philippians 1:1; 1 Timothy 2:12, 3:1-13; Hebrews 10:25).
We believe that the establishment and continuance of local churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures. (Acts 14:27, 20:17, 28-32; Titus 1:5-11).
We believe in the autonomy of the local church, free of any external authority or control.(Acts 13:1-4, 15:19-31, 20:28; Romans 16:1, 4; I Corinthians 3:9, 16, 5:4-7, 13; I Peter 5:1-4).
We believe in water baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper as the two Scriptural ordinances of obedience for the church. (Matthew. 28:19-20; Acts 2:38, 10: 47-48; Acts 2:41-42; I Corinthians 11:23-26).
We believe that all those that belong to Christ should live a life of holiness. As we come close to Him, He sanctifies us and gives us the desire to live a consecrated life in the abundant joy that His presence supplies. We believe that walking in the Light means living in such a manner as not to bring reproach upon their Savior and Lord. We believe Biblical separation to also include separation from all religious apostasy, all worldly and sinful pleasures, practices and associations and to refrain from all immodest and immoderate appearances, piercings, and bodily markings. (II Timothy 3:1-5; Romans 12:1-2, 14:13; I John 2:15-17; II John 9-11; II Corinthians 6:14-7:1; Leviticus 19:28; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20).
We believe the “Blessed Hope”; the personal, bodily, pretribulational, premillennial and imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for His redeemed ones, Who will rapture His church prior to the seven-year tribulation period; Followed by His return to earth with His saints to establish His Millennial Kingdom. (Matthew 24:44; John 14:1-3; I Thessalonians 1:10, 4:13-18; Titus 2:11-13; Revelation 3:10; Zechariah 14:4-11; Revelation 19:11-16, 20:1-6; Psalm 89:3-4).
We believe that God created an innumerable company of sinless spirit beings. They minister in heaven and on earth. One of these though created holy by God, sinned through pride, thereby becoming Satan, the Devil, the enemy of his Creator, leading a host of angels in rebellion against God. He became the god of this age and the ruler of all the powers of darkness and is destined to the judgment of an eternal punishment in the lake of fire. (Nehemiah 9:6; Matthew 4:11, 2541; Acts 12:7-9, 27:22-24;II Corinthians 4:3-4; Ephesians 2:22; Colossians 1:16, Hebrews 12:22; Revelation 12:7-9; 20:10)
We believe in the direct creation by God of the physical universe, all spirit beings, man, and lower forms of life, without the process of evolution. We believe all of God’s Word, including the early chapters of Genesis as they are literally written and accurate accounts of history. We believe that God created the universe in six literal, 24-hour periods. We reject evolution, the Gap Theory, the Day-Age Theory, and Theistic Evolution as unscriptural theories of origin. (Genesis 1 and 2; Colossians 1:15-17; John 1:3; Ex. 20:11)
We believe that God has ordained and created all authority consisting of three basic institutions: 1) the home, 2) the church, and 3) the state. Every person is subject to these authorities, but all (including the authorities themselves) are answerable to God and governed by His Word. God has given each institution specific Biblical responsibilities and balanced those responsibilities with the understanding that no institution has the right to infringe upon the other. The home, the church, and the state are equal and sovereign in their respective Biblically assigned spheres of responsibility under God. (Romans 13:1-7; Ephesians 5:22-24; Hebrews 13:17; 1 Peter 2:13-14)
We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between one man and one woman. We believe that any form of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, bestiality, incest, fornication, adultery, and pornography are sinful perversions of God’s gift of sex. We believe that God disapproves of and forbids any attempt to alter one’s gender by hormone therapy, surgery or appearance.(Genesis 2:24; Genesis 19:5, 13; Genesis 26:8-9; Leviticus 18:1-30; Romans 1: 26-29; 1 Corinthians 5:1; 6:9; 1 Thessalonians 4:1-8; Hebrews 13:4)
We believe that the only Scriptural marriage is the joining of one man and one woman until death, and thus it is the duty and right of the Pastor to deny the joining in marriage of any unscriptural union, including but not limited to same-sex partners or “Civil Unions.” We believe that a Marriage Ceremony is a worship service of the church and that as the pastor leads in all other worship services, that he lead in the Marriage Ceremony worship service. (Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:5-6; Mark 10:7-8; Romans 7:2; 1 Corinthians 7:10; Ephesians 5:22-23)
We believe that men and women are spiritually equal in position before God, in dignity, in honor, and in worth but that God has ordained distinct and separate spiritual functions for men and women in the home and the church. The husband is to be the leader of the home, and men are to be the leaders of the church. Accordingly, only men are eligible for licensure and ordination by the church. (Galatians 3:28; Colossians 3:18; 1 Timothy 2:8-15; 3:4-5, 12)
We believe that God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. The husband is to love his wife as Christ loves the church. The wife is to submit herself to the Scriptural leadership of her husband as the church submits to the headship of Christ. Children are an heritage from the Lord. Parents are responsible for teaching their children spiritual and moral values and leading them, through consistent lifestyle example and appropriate discipline, including Scriptural corporal correction. (Genesis 1:26-28; Exodus 20:12; Deuteronomy 6:4-9; Psalms 127:3-5; Proverbs 19:18; 22:15; 23:13-14; Mark. 10:6-12; 1 Corinthians 7:1-16; Eph. 5:21-33; 6:1-4, Colossians 3:18-21; Hebrews 13:4; 1 Peter 3:1-7)
We believe that God disapproves of and forbids divorce and intends marriage to last until one of the spouses dies. Divorce and remarriage is regarded as adultery except on the grounds of fornication. Although divorced and remarried persons or divorced persons may hold positions of service in the church and be greatly used of God for Christian service, they may not be considered for the offices of pastor or deacon. (Malachi 2:14-17; Matthew 19:3-12; Romans 7:1-3; 1 Timothy 3:2, 12; Titus 1:6)
We believe that human life begins at conception and that the unborn child is a living human being. Abortion constitutes the unjustified, unexcused taking of unborn human life. Abortion is murder. We reject any teaching that abortions of pregnancies due to rape, incest, birth defects, gender selection, birth or population control, or the physical or mental well being of the mother are acceptable. (Job 3:16; Psalms 51:5; 139:14-16; Isaiah 44:24; 49:1, 5; Jereriah 1:5; 20:15-18; Luke 1:44)
We believe that the direct taking of an innocent human life is a moral evil, regardless of the intention. Life is a gift of God and must be respected from conception until natural death. Thus we believe that an act or omission which, of itself or by intention, causes death in order to eliminate suffering constitutes a murder contrary to the will of God. Discontinuing medical procedures that are extraordinary or disproportionate to the expected outcome can be a legitimate refusal of over-zealous treatment. (Exodus 20:13, 23:7; Matthew 5:21; Acts 17:28)
We believe that we should demonstrate love for others, not only toward fellow believers, but also toward both those who are not believers, those who oppose us, and those who engage in sinful actions. We are to deal with those who oppose us graciously, gently, patiently, and humbly. God forbids the stirring up of strife, the taking of revenge, or the threat or the use of violence as a means of resolving personal conflict or obtaining personal justice. Although God commands us to abhor sinful actions, we are to love and pray for any person who engages in such sinful actions. (Leviticus 19:18; Matthew 5:44-48; Luke 6:31; John 13:34-35; Romans 12:9-10; 17-21; 13:8-10; Philippians 2:2-4; 2 Timothy 2:24-26; Titus 3:2; 1 John 3:17-18)
We believe that Christians are prohibited from bringing civil lawsuits against other Christians or the church to resolve personal disputes. We believe the church possesses all the resources necessary to resolve personal disputes between members. We do believe, however, that a Christian may seek compensation for injuries from another Christian’s insurance company as long as the claim is pursued without malice or slander. (1 Cor. 6:1-8; Eph. 4:31-32)
We believe that God has given us a mission in the Great Commission. We are to proclaim the Gospel to all nations. We do this in obedience to Jesus’ clear command and so that there might be a great multitude from every nation, tribe and language group who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. As ambassadors of Christ, we must use all Biblical methods to go to all nations and not wait for them to come to us. It is to this end that we send out mission teams each summer to proclaim the Gospel and help plant churches in both the United States and foreign lands. It is also to this end that we both prayerfully and financially support missionaries and church planters whose to both the United States and Foreign Lands. (Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15; Luke 24:46-48; John 20:21; Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 5:20; Isaiah 6:8)
We believe that every Christian, as a steward of that portion of God’s wealth entrusted to him, is obligated to financially support his local church. We believe that God has established the tithe as a basis for giving, but that every Christian should also give other offerings sacrificially and cheerfully to the support of the church, the relief of those in need, and the spread of the Gospel. We believe that a Christian relinquishes all rights to direct the use of his tithe or offering once the gift has been made. (Genesis 14:20; Proverbs 3:9-10; Acts 4:34-37; 1 Corinthians 16:2; 2 Corinthians 9:6-7; Galatians 6:6; Ephesians 4:28; 1 Timothy 5:17-18; 1 John 3:17)
We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life, and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment (Matthew 25:46; John 5:28, 29, 11:25-26; Revelation 20:5-6, 12-13).
We believe that the souls of believers in Christ do at death, immediately pass into His presence. And there remain until the first resurrection of the body at the rapture, when soul and body reunited shall stand before Christ to be judged of their Christian works for the giving of rewards; and they shall then be with Him forever in glory (Luke 23:43; Revelation 20:4-6; II Corinthians 5:8; Philippians 1:23, 3:21; I Thessalonians 4:16-17).
We believe that the souls of unbelievers remain, after death, in conscious agony in hell until the final resurrection at the end of the millennium for judgment; when with soul and body reunited, they shall appear at the Great White Throne Judgment, and shall be cast into the Lake of Fire, not to be annihilated, , but to be punished with everlasting separation from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power forever. (Luke 16:19-26; Matthew 25:41-46; II Thessalonians 1:7-9; Jude 6-7; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 20:11-15).
The Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of our faith. The Bible itself is the sole and final source of all that we believe. We do believe, however, that the foregoing Statement of Faith accurately represents the teaching of the Bible, and therefore, is binding upon all Bible Baptist Church members.
Each week at Bible Baptist Church you’ll find that we gather together for effectual, fervent prayer; solid, passionate preaching; practical, biblical teaching; reverent, inspirational singing; and friendly, loving fellowship.
You’ll also find a printed bulletin for notes on upcoming events that will help you make the most of each week’s fellowship and teaching opportunities. During these Services, small children are well-cared for in a clean, safe nursery and Junior aged kids enjoy a service just for them.
If you are visiting for the first time, we will not embarrass you, have you stand up, or ask you to give money. We know that many people want to check out a church and “be anonymous” for awhile—and that’s fine with us! Come in, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, and see if this is the place that God would have for you.
You’ll find everything from casual clothes to business suits at our Services. Our ministry leaders and church family are encouraged to dress modestly and appropriately with a dignity for the service of our Lord; however, there is not a "dress code" at Bible Baptist Church for members or for guests.
We have a dynamic mid-week service which focuses on Prayer and Bible study.
At Bible Baptist Church our children are a high priority. Our nurseries are clean, safe, and staffed with loving workers. We offer an exciting children's ministry called Truth Trackers as well as a life-changing ministry for students from junior high through college.
There are many ways to get involved. You can begin by attending Pastor Cuozzo's Foundation Class. Bible Study Fellowships are another great way to connect. In each of these, you can build friendships, learn more about the life of our church, and have the opportunity to grow in your knowledge of Scripture and walk with the Lord Jesus.
Our desire is to see you become a fully-devoted follower of Jesus Christ. All of our ministries are designed to offer you the tools necessary to make this happen in your life. From the initial decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, to your involvement in life-changing ministry, we will help you step-by-step. From healing and encouragement to growth and leadership; the journey toward Christian maturity is happening every day. Begin the process and enroll in a Bible Study Fellowship Class Today.
Bible Study Fellowships are an important part of Bible Baptist Church; in fact, you haven’t fully experienced what it means to be a part of our church until you’ve experienced our Bible Study Fellowships. These Groups allow you to meet other members and develop relationships that will spur your relationship with God. As Bible Baptist Church grows, this allows us to “stay small” and connected. We offer Bible Studies for all ages and interests—there’s bound to be one that’s just right for you. Start attending and you will soon know why we love to gather together in this way.
One of the easiest things to do at Bible Baptist Church is to participate in a Bible Study Fellowship. Groups meet throughout the Church Building Facility on Sundays at 9:15am and in homes on Thursday Evenings. They provide the perfect context for Bible study, fellowship, and support.
