We are affiliated with the American Baptist Churches, USA, whose headquarters are in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. As per Baptist tradition, our church is very much an independent congregation, responsible for its own programs of worship, music, education, fellowship, and outreach to the community and world. Since we ordain and hire our own ministers, they are closely aligned with and serve the distinct needs of our congregation. And we are responsible for our own stewardship, budgeting, and fiscal stability.
And yet, we call ourselves American Baptists. We maintain strong ties with the American Baptist Churches, USA (ABC/USA) and with ABCNJ, their regional organization within New Jersey. We participate in their programs for national and international ministry and mission. To learn more about the work of American Baptists, please visit the web sites listed below:
