About Us

Our Church History

New Bethel Baptist Church (NBBC) was organized in 1902 by seven former members of Salem Baptist Church in Washington, D.C.. The history of NBBC is based on the experiences of the members who worshiped within its walls and reached out to the unsaved in the community. Each chapter describes the church’s trials and successes, joys and sorrows, special occasions and celebrations and, most importantly, the expressions and testimonies of a deep spiritual belief and faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. With the passing of the staff from its first pastor to each successive pastor, the church has evolved with a keen sense of and adjustment to the times in which we live. NBBC has always and will continue to address the needs of its congregation, community, city, and world-at-large as set forth in the Word of God.
