Be Open and Honest Before God
"...for the Lord searches all hearts and understands all the intent of the thoughts..."
1 Chronicles 28:9
Welcome to the official website of the Mt. Ephraim Baptist Church, the first and oldest church in Mt. Ephraim, New Jersey. We are a fellowship of Christians who humbly seek to serve the Lord Jesus Christ, biblically centered, friendly, compassionate with a non-judgmental congregation. Our outreach includes Mt. Ephraim and neighboring communities as well as a global involvement through many local and foreign missionaries whom we support. If you are searching for a church we invite you to worship with us.
