Church Overview

Our mission at North Baptist Church is
Enabling as many people as possible to experience abundant life in Jesus Christ.
We believe that God has placed us in the Northside neighborhood of Corning, NY, so that we can make His name known to those far away from God. Our heart is to show the families living in the blocks surrounding our church that hope and love are real, and that they are found in Jesus Christ.
In 1896 a few families from the Northside of Corning—then known as Knoxville—petitioned for a new Baptist church to be built on their side of the river. This new church, eventually named North Baptist Church, was planted with the specific purpose of ministering to those who could not cross the river.
Since then, North Baptist Church has ministered to the families of the Northside neighborhood. We have been here through the good times and the lean times, and even through The it all, we have sought to build up God’s kingdom in the Southern Tier.
