Rejoice In the Holy Spirit Of Jesus Christ

Experience the power of prayer when you visit New St. John Baptist Church in Ocala, Florida. We accept and believe the Bible to be the true, living, inspired Word of God. Our congregation is primarily African American, however, we accept all ethnicities. Our passion for our Lord and Savior rings true in each and every one of our sermons.


Church People

Forever Learning From His Words

We believe in the Holy Spirit, who is the Spirit of God among us, and the Spirit of Christ within us. No matter if you have strayed from God's path or stayed devout in all of His teachings, we accept you into our Church with open arms and great love. We believe in Salvation and that even in our sin, God so loved us that He sent His only begotten son, Jesus, to die for us. By making an open confession and believing in Christ rising from the dead, we are saved.

Christenings Are an Ordinance of Our Savior

It has been our great honor to baptize newborns, children, and adults into the loving grace of God, and we invite you to take part in this symbolic death, burial, and resurrection as you seek a closer walk with the Lord.
