Our History

Our church was established under the leadership of Pastor Barry Rice on February 6,1994 when First Baptist Church of Northfield and Faith Baptist Church of Seaville, NJ came together in beautiful and harmonious merger of the two churches.  First Baptist needed a pastor and Faith Baptist needed a building.  God brought these wonderful groups of believers together calling on the Pastor of Faith Baptist Church, Barry Rice, to be the first pastor in the location of First Baptist Church of Northfield on 1964 Zion Road.  God has blessed with wonderful unity and a family atmosphere over the years as the church grew.  Then on January 1, 2006, God called Pastor Barry Rice to glory after 30 years of church ministry.  On March 5, 2006 the church then voted in his son Jeremy, who was the assistant pastor, and was currently getting Seminary training in PA, to be the Pastor of the church.  The church is flourishing under the leadership of the Pastor and Deacons and a sweet group of committed believers.  We would love to have you visit us very soon.
