In 1867 First Baptist Church gathered for the first time. A small group of people met at a member's home, and now over 150 years later, we are still meeting together to worship God, live in community, be discipled, connect the unconnected, and raise up the next generation.
As we continue to seek to advance God's Kingdom in Toms River we recognize that there is a need for change in both our church body and in the community. There is a desperate need for the resurrected life given to us through Christ to flow in and through us, this is reflected in our name change: New Life Church.
New Life Church is deeply rooted in Evangelicalism, belonging to the Conservative Baptist Association. We hold Scripture as our authority, the Father as Creator, the Son as Savior and the Holy Spirit as Indwelling Guide.
