First Baptist Church Historical Committee

This group’s mission is to preserve the historical artifacts and documents of the church. Also, to highlight the rich history of the church to its members as well as the community.

A major goal has been the preservation of the historic diary kept by the first pastor of the church, The Rev. John Sisty, which is dated from 1817 to 1838. The diary’s restoration is completed and it will be displayed during the church’s 200th Anniversary Year, 2018.

The historical committee and all the congregants of The First Baptist Church of Haddonfield give thanksgiving to The Lord for those who contributed so much in the first 200 years of the church’s ministry. We now look forward to its future with faith and expectation!
