Description of Organization
The Baptist Church of Northville is located in Northville, NY. We are an hour north-west of Albany, in the lower region of the Adirondack Mountains. The landscape is beautiful & has many opportunities for hiking, camping, hunting, fishing, skiing & other outdoor activities. The Village of Northville is small with a population of around 1,100 people, but very quaint & located at the northern part of the Great Sacandaga Lake. Many parents find the village is a wonderful place to raise children.
The church itself has been in the village since 1802. By God’s grace & providence, it has held fast to the gospel & maintained a faithful presence in the area as other churches in this region have come & gone. The American North East is one of the most, if not the most, secular part of our country. Despite this, the Baptist Church of Northville has benefited from regular, expository preaching of God’s Word, a faithful pastoral ministry & the many committed members that give of their time and gifts for building up the body. We regularly have over 200 in attendance during our Sunday morning service & an active youth scene that even captivates a secular & unchurched audience. Both of these things are unusual for our region & shows spiritual life & potential for ministry. The Lord has truly been good to us.
