"Till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ." (Ephesians 4:13)
These groups meet during our Sunday morning Bible study session. Pastor and other gifted teachers in the church provide clear, practical teaching from the Word of God. After each lesson, men and women break out into discussion groups to answer questions, pray together, and apply to their lives what they have learned. Group members stay in touch with each other throughout the week to encourage one another, meet one another's needs, and build Christ-centered friendships.

Days of Prayer
We gather for extended periods of prayer and fasting multiple times a year. These events usually occur on Saturdays and include members of all ages (including children). Together we confess our need, worship our God, refocus on our mission, and intercede for the needs of our church, other churches, foreign missionaries, the persecuted church, government officials, and our community. To join us for our next day of prayer, click here to contact us.
We encourage one another to be faithful witnesses for the gospel in daily life through Christlike behavior and compassionate conversations about Jesus. We hold weekly gospel outreaches every Saturday in various neighborhoods around Queens from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. We also conduct special church outreach events with a gospel emphasis throughout the year. These include: street fair outreach booths, Mother's Day and Christmas banquets, gospel-focused Easter and Christmas services, open-air conversations at nearby locations, and in-home evangelistic Bible studies.
Through the service of our deacons and the generosity and help of our members, we provide compassionate care to members in need in the following ways and more: a prayer request hotline, shuttle service, in-home visits to the elderly and shut-ins, hospital calls, an annual Thanksgiving offering, and financial aid in times of crisis.
Bible Study Fellowships
Beyond Sunday, members gather together for Bible study and prayer in various ways every month, including Bible study breakfasts and in-home study groups. The ladies of our church meet together on the second Saturday of every month from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. Men meet for Bible study every other month on the last Saturday. These Bible studies will take place either at the church or in members' homes. For more information about current Bible study opportunities, click here to contact us.
Our college and career singles gather monthly to build uplifting friendships, visit elderly members, undertake new adventures, and study the Word of God. Singles from other likeminded churches also participate. For more information about upcoming singles events, click here to contact us.
Our pastor provides free premarital counseling to members of our church who are preparing for marriage. This counseling features a premarital inventory, six Bible study sessions, reading assignments, and helpful guidance for wedding preparations. To preview the resources for this ministry, click here.
In addition to premarital and marriage counseling for members, we also provide regular couples events - dinners, topical talks, and our annual couples retreat. These events are designed to strengthen our marriages for Christ.
We host an annual two-day couples retreat in October at Tri-State Bible Camp. Married couples from Faith Baptist Church join with couples from likeminded churches in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York to receive concentrated Bible teaching about marriage.
