About Us

new light baptist church


Established in 1771, we are the oldest Baptist church in Wake County, NC. Our current building on New Light Road was built in the 1980's 


We as a church are members of the Southern Baptist Convention and the Baptist State Convention. We are affiliated locally with the Raleigh Baptist Association. We are a small congregation with a membership of about 40-50 people, pastored by Dr. Michael Jones. We have 3 service times per week, as well as a number of other ministries and activities for all ages. 


Our congregation is constantly growing in the area of community missions. We seek to increase our attendance as well. We are consistantly striving to be a light to our community.
