City Baptist Church is an Independent Baptist Church in Hoboken, New Jersey with a heart for the entire New York City Area. City Baptist stands as a solid Bible Church where the Scriptures are taught each week through the clear and relevant expository Bible preaching of our Pastor, Philip Rizzo. Not only will we offering regular worship services in Hoboken, but City Baptist Church is a church that is offering Hoboken and neighboring town residents free Marriage Counseling, Family Counseling, Spiritual Counseling and Financial Counseling.
City Baptist Church will be meeting in Hoboken at a place that will be conveniently located within the city limits. With so many churches in Hoboken, finding the right one can seem impossible. At City Baptist Church we hold to a high view of Scripture and preach or teach it in every service.
City Baptist will be strategically located due to the transportation offered at Hoboken Terminal. With a short commute from Guttenberg, West New York, Weehawken, Union City, Jersey City, Bayonne and New York City we desire to minister to those along the Hudson River with the message of Jesus Christ.
We believe that the cornerstone of the Christian life is Jesus Christ, and the building that God is erecting on that Cornerstone is His Church. We believe that a person is saved by the grace of God, and eternally secure by God's grace. We believe a person is kept in fellowship with God by his grace, and we can serve God only by his Grace.
City Baptist Church is a dynamic Christian Church that has a desire to start Baptist Churches in Northern New Jersey. It is our supreme desire to spread the gospel message to the residents of this city and plant more Baptist Christian Churches specifically in Hudson, Essex and Morris Counties.
City Baptist Church is the only church in Hoboken that is Independent, Fundamental and holds the Baptist Distinctives. We still use the King James Version of the Bible, and believe every verse for what it says. John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Hoboken Churches seem to be diminishing over time to Evangelical Free or Community Churches. We are unapologetically an Independent Fundamental Baptist Church that still sings the old hymns and uses the King James Bible.
If you’re looking for a church with a passion for expository Bible preaching in the Hoboken area, or an educational and fun children’s ministry environment, or just a place where you can get involved in community service in Hoboken, then City Baptist Church may be just the right church for you.
