At Union Baptist Church we are a historic congregation in New Jersey’s capitol city with over 120 years of unbroken fellowship and worship. While rooted in a rich heritage of the African-American Baptist tradition, the congregation is open and diverse. We are a community-based church whose outstretched arms reflect a commitment to emulating Jesus’ invitation to “whosoever will.” For this reason, we are blessed to count among our congregation persons from all walks of life uniting young singles, growing families, and longstanding pillars of the faith community.

Union has distinguished itself as a site of socially prophetic preaching, sound biblical teaching and spirited Sunday morning worship. As a church we are known for our commitment to social and economic justice. There are a number of community outreach ministries for members to participate in, which include congregational partnerships with public and private entities such as the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Our community development corporation has been instrumental in efforts to build housing, open neighborhood business and institute a range of wellness programs for the community. The congregation embraces and celebrates the best of both contemporary and traditional expressions of praise and worship. We are not afraid to “make a joyful noise” even as we reinforce a commitment to ongoing Christian education and sober spiritual reflection.

This, indeed, is an exciting time in the life of the Union family. The call before us is as broad as God’s grace. We believe there are limitless possibilities for ministry in this eclectic company of women and men spiritually united as “one in Christ, one in heart and one in mission.”
