Who We are
“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden." Matthew 5:14
This church shall exist for the glorifying of God; it shall be accessible to all peoples and shall seek to be efficient in its working. Its purposes shall be to proclaim the total plan of redemption as made manifest in the life and death of Christ for our sins, His burial and glorious resurrection, His ascension to the high priestly office, and the extension of His personality through world missions. (1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Matthew 28:16-20; Hebrews. 9; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18.)
This church shall seek to minister to the spiritual, moral, and material needs of all humankind to an extent consistent with our potential and in accordance with Christian principles. (Ephesians 5:25-27)
As Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the Word, that He might present the church to Himself in glorious splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing – that she might be holy and faultless.”

Bronx Baptist Church. Currently, the Bronx Baptist Church sponsors four church plants – the Kenyan Fellowship Church in New Jersey (Pastor John Ronoh), Power Point Baptist Church also in New Jersey (Pastor Cephas Agbesi), and ByStorm Church here in the Bronx (Pastor Jimi Orekoya). The fourth church plant is a sponsorship of A Better City Movement Church (Pastor Israel Kelly); in which we partnered to establish a Hispanic work in the immediate neighborhood of the church. This partnership began in January 2015 and involves offering services in Spanish, and joint services once per quarter in English and Spanish.
Through our prison ministry, weekly Bible studies are held with young adult and adult males at a local New York City prison.
Early childhood education with a spiritual dimension is provided by a fully licensed Day Care program. Each year a Summer Day Camp and Vacation Bible School, respectively, minister to social and spiritual needs of children in the community children and provides a work site for City Summer Youth workers. Along with other churches in the Bronx and through the active participation of the Founding Pastor in community organizations, Bronx Baptist Church was instrumental in organizing the Twin Parks Association, which provided 3000 units of low income housing, two Day Centers, and a number of amenities. Bronx Baptist Church continues to be a part of the struggle to obtain more and better housing, schools, sanitation, and medical care for the Bronx community residents.
