Our Beliefs

We believe...

That God is Triune—three Persons, one Being—
God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit

That Jesus is the only begotten Son of the Father,
at once fully human and fully divine

That the Bible is the holy and inspired word of God

That Jesus lived, died and lives again, and now
mediates for us in the presence of the Father

That Jesus’ death on Calvary's Cross
provides divine atonement for Human sin

That whosoever believes in Jesus Christ shall be saved

That Jesus is coming back, at a time not known by humanity,
for the Church of faithful believers

Our Mission

Our Mission is to be a church led by the Spirit of God; proclaiming and teaching to all the word of God; laboring in our community to advance the kingdom of God; living into eternity to the Glory of God.

Our History

It was the year 1885 and the time had come to break away from the First Baptist Church of Asbury Park, NJ (a predominately White church), located on the southwest corner of Main and Bangs Ave. A group of Blacks who had been worshiping at First Baptist decided they wanted their own place of worship. The pastor of First Baptist, Rev. Frank C. Colby, and the officers were duly informed. The pastor, officers, and congregation tendered their blessings and those Blacks of kindred spirit ceased to attend First Baptist and proceeded to organize a mission. The group’s immediate concern was that of a meeting place.
