Rev. Wallace B. Johnson was considering 3 places to start a church. Atlantic City, Tom’s River and New Egypt. He came into New Egypt for icecream and saw a building on Main Street for rent. Encouraged by his wife, Pastor Johnson decided to rent the building. On Mother’s Day of May of 1966, New Egypt Chapel was started. Located at 3 Main Street, New Egypt.
In the early 1970′s a building was purchased at 8 Magnolia Ave. Renovations needed to be done, which took several years. The new building was dedicated on October 9, 1977.
Pastor Johnson suffered an aneurysm in 1975 but continued to pastor the church. He passed away in 1979.
Pastor John Swearinger was called as Pastor in April of 1981. During his ministry the church changed it’s name to Bible Baptist Church. Additional property (8 acres) was also purchased on Lakewood Road.
Pastor Stephen Beverly was called to the church in 1999 and during his ministry, a parsonage was constructed on the property on Lakewood Road and many more improvements were made. In addition, Pastor Beverly and his wife Denise, along with their children: Karrie, Joshua, Sarah and Katelynn, tirelessly and faithfully served the members of Bible Baptist Church, the community of New Egypt, and surrounding townships for over 11 years, leading countless souls to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Pastor Dominick Cuozzo was called as Pastor on February 21st 2010 and officially began ministering as of March 1st 2010. The Church Family and the Cuozzo Family are both very excited about what the Lord has begun to do and what He will continue to do as we follow Him.
