The Historical history today of Union Baptist Church is far more than a building. It stands as a beacon of light that reaches from earth to heaven. We hear the voices of praise from our forefathers and mothers. Since the inception in 1936, the Lord God touched the hearts of the people in Passaic to build Him a house of worship. A church built on the foundation of Unity in Jesus Christ for seventy seven years.
Today, at Union Baptist Church our mission statement is "[email protected]" ~ "Building Lives Through Biblical Principles" with the vision "We believe [email protected] is our Christian mandate. We strive in all of our endeavors to Proclaim the Gospel of Christ, Promote the Cross of Christ, and Portray the Love of Christ". EPHESIANS 4:1-16
During September 25th thru Sunday, September 29th 2013, Union held a ReDedication Ceremony marking forty-nine years since the congregation entered the Union Baptist Church at 221 Myrtle Ave. Passaic, NJ and held its first worship service on September 27th, 1964. As we ReDedicate our lives, and the Ministry of the Union Baptist Church to the God of our Salvation, we move forward united in Christ with a Godly Mission and Mandate to serve our Lord and the Community at large.
