We are so excited to be able to host the New York Baptist Church Planter’s meeting on June 6th at Community Baptist Church (5267 Sound Ave, Riverhead, NY 11901). We are going to start with a light lunch at 12:00pm, followed by a service at 12:30. After the service we will be door-knocking in the next town over. Inside of the door hanger bags will be invitations to our evangelistic concert with the HBBC music group (the next week, June 16th). We will plan to meet back at the church by 2:30 so everyone can avoid the worst of rush hour traffic. If anyone would like to come down early and spend Monday night at Open Door Bible Baptist Church in New York City, they have classrooms and air mattresses available. If you would like to stay you need to call Pastor Pete Montoro as soon as possible. If you are attending please contact Pastor Andrew (347-443-6357 / firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible so we can make sure we have adequate food.
If you need a ride call Buckley Road Baptist Dan Smith 315 247 2744. We will leave about 6:00 AM and return after the meeting.
Looking forward to what God is going to do!
Pastor Andrew Montoro, Community Baptist Church – 5267 Sound Ave Riverhead, NY 11901: Cell: 347-443-6357
What is NYSCP?
We are a loose knit group of King James Bible believing independent Baptist churches and Pastors that seek to help build, rebuild, and sustain other Baptist churches of like faith and practice within our God given field of New York state. We don’t need to be all in same “camp,” but in the same base doctrines of the faith. We recognize that the Great Commission given by God to “go into all the world” also includes the state of New York. So it is our purpose to preach the Word of God so that souls can be saved, Christians challenged to grow in the Lord, new churches established, existing churches built up, and men of God encouraged to know they are not alone in the work of the ministry here in New York.
“And so were the churches established in the faith, and increased in number daily.” Acts 16:5
How Do We Work?
Local Baptist Church Only
We work only with church plants that are based out of a local baptist church, often known as the “birthing” or Jerusalem church. This church is the authority that each visiting pastor supports by his labor. We will not work in any other way.
Often pastors gather together for needed fellowship and encouragement, but, the NY State Church Planters have chosen to use these “fellowship” times to not only encourage each other but also to try to build other local Baptist churches in New York.
A Suggested Schedule For a Meeting
Most meetings usually begin around 9:30 with a time of preaching the Word of the God by one of the pastors. This preaching time is followed by a time of door to door evangelism within an area designed by the church planting pastor. This evangelism seeks to distribute literature, such as John and Romans, provided by the church plant or its “birthing” church. This soul winning time is what makes NYSCP meetings unique from most pastor’s “fellowship times.” The day usually ends with time together around a noon meal to share contacts and converts with the new church and its pastor. The meal is often at a local restaurant with each visiting pastor paying for his meal, so as not to burden the church plant. Often more homes are visited in one day than a church planting pastor and his family can visit in many months. Sometimes over 500 homes are visited in a single day.
