  On Sunday, December 29, 2013, two of our American Baptist sister churches in the Pottstown area held a Joint Believers' Baptism service. Parker Ford Baptist Church, who has a baptistry, opened their doors and arms and welcomed New Covenant Baptist Church of Pottstown as they baptized one youth and five adults, which included two couples.


Interim pastor of Parker Ford, Rev. David Enfield, served as the worship leader. New Covenant's Interim Pastor, Rev. Robert Coats, and Rev. Blake Edwards officiated at the baptism. Pastor Bob gave a brief explanation of Believers' Baptism before the baptism, and then he gave the closing message entitled: "A Time To Be Reborn!"

What a special celebration for two of our churches who average 40 - 50 each Sunday to have 94 in attendance on this special Sunday to bring in the new year!

On January 12, as New Covenant celebrates New Year's Communion, twelve new people altogether will join as members. A soup luncheon will follow in their honor.


Praise the Lord for the movement of His Holy Spirit!
