Where we started, where we are going. Hunterdale Baptist, past, present and future.

     On July 6, 1975, Hunterdale Baptist Church was founded by Pastor Howard L. Vinson Jr., and held its first meeting in what was known as the old Hunterdale Bowling Alley. There were twelve people present for the morning service and sixteen people present for the evening service.
     The church was part of the Bob Jones University Church Planting Program. Calvary Baptist Church in Alexandria, Virginia and Southside Baptist Church in Greenville, South Carolina, along with Bob Jones University, aided the church financially for a short period of time to help the church become established.
     The church was formally organized on Sunday, December 28, 1975, in a special service. There were 23 charter members.
     A 3.8 acre parcel of land was purchased in February 1976, which is the present site of the church. Groundbreaking was held in March 1977 to begin our first building program. Our new church building was dedicated on October 9, 1977. An addition to the church was built in 1981. It has Sunday school rooms, offices and a fellowship hall.
     The church currently supports over 32 missionaries around the world with our Faith Promise missions program.
     The existence of this church is a testimony to the greatness of God and how God has provided for all of its needs through the years. We look forward to seeing God do even better things in the future.
