Our Leadership

Pastor's Timothy & Lindsay McBride

We first accepted a call to ministry in 2008. God later called us here to serve the community of Essex County in 2022. 

We love discussing the depths of God’s word, have a heart for missions, passionate about music and children, and always enjoy partnering with others to further the kingdom of Christ. 

Because time is so fleeting, we want to do everything we can to build the kingdom of God here on Earth. 

We want to go where no one else goes and to reach the ones that no one else reaches.  The most important thing that we can tell you about ourselves is that we love Christ, and we will love you too. 

We believe in fellowship, and enjoy real meaningful conversations.  We are real people who want to know about you and pray with you.

What We Believe?

  • In the verbal inspiration of the Bible.

  • In one God eternally existing in three persons; namely, the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

  •  That Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Ghost, and born of the Virgin Mary. That Jesus was crucified, buried, and raised from the dead. That He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as the Intercessor.

  •  That all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that repentance is commanded of God for all and necessary for forgiveness of sins.

  •  That justification, regeneration, and the new birth are wrought by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.

  •  In sanctification subsequent to the new birth, through faith in the blood of Christ; through the Word, and by the Holy Ghost.

  •  Holiness to be God's standard of living for His people.

  •  In the baptism with the Holy Ghost subsequent to a clean heart.

  •  In speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and that it is the initial evidence of the baptism of the Holy Ghost.

  •  In water baptism by immersion, and all who repent should be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

  •  Divine healing is provided for all in the atonement.

  •  In the Lord's Supper and washing of the saints' feet.

  •  In the pre-millennial second coming of Jesus. First, to resurrect the righteous dead and to catch away the living saints to Him in the air. Second, to reign on the earth a thousand years.

  •  In the bodily resurrection; eternal life for the righteous, and eternal punishment for the wicked.
