Our History

It's been said, "It's not important where you've been...or what you've done.  The important thing is where you're going!"  

 

 

We are on a spiritual journey serving the Lord Jesus Christ, here on Earth.  Here is a sample of our outreach:

  • We hold weekly Sunday Worship Services,
  • We conduct Sunday School (September - June) beginning at 10:15 am;
  • Volunteer in our local food pantry;
  • We have weekly men's and ladies bible studies in homes;
  • We co-coodinate the annual Greenfield Garage Sale  
  • We support missionary families serving in Belize, Columbia, and Indonesia as well as a number of local mnistries. 
  • We hold worship services at the Saratoga Nursing and Rehab Center in Ballston Spa to encourage our older brothers and sisters quarterly throughout the year.  
  • We encourage our church body and support them through the various seasons of life. 

As a healthy small congregation of believers, we invite you to join us for true friendship and to find answers to life's hardest questions. 

 

 

Our History:  The Greenfield Center Baptist Church was founded in 1791. One of the chief organizers was General Samuel Bailey who had been on the staff of General George Washington during the American Revolution. The first pastor of the church was Reverend Joseph Craw. During that time, worship meetings were held in houses, schoolhouses and barns.

 

In 1816, the first church building was erected and later replaced in 1892 with the present building at a cost of $2,500 under the leadership of Rev. Rodney D. Andrews. Reverend Andrews served at the church from 1884 until 1925.

 

In 2021, the church will celebrate our 230th anniversary. 

 

However, despite our rich history, we truly believe that the best is yet to come!  God is still working mightily in Greenfield Center, in New York, America, and the World!

There are a number of special events coming up at GCBC!  But, let's take a look at what we've participated in the past few months!< New tex

 

Greenfield Town Wide Garage Sale:

 

As in the past several years, GCBC worked with the Lions Club of Greenfield Center to host the 26th Town wide Garage Sale.  All monies raised by GCBC went to the Town Food Pantry. 

 

Greenfield Town Halloween Outreach:

 

We participated in the Town of Greenfield Halloween sponsored Halloween Fun Day!  In a little more than an hour, we distributed 250 bags of candy and tracts to cleverly dressed children!  It was a wonderful day and a great opportunity to meet and visit with many of the folks in the county.
