a word from our pastor

My name is Randy Beals and I am the pastor of New Haven Baptist Church. I received Jesus as my Lord and Savior October 15th 1977 at a Vacation Bible School follow-up program in Trilla, Ill.  I have a beautiful wife named Laurie and 2 sons, Jacob and Jackson. I surrendered to Preach in September 1990 at the age of 19 and then surrendered to the Pastorate in December 1992.  I believe that the Bible is inerrant and infallible in its original autographs.  New Haven Baptist Church invites you to every service and hopes that you will find a place to belong and serve.

From Our women's study

Our women's ministry is Christ-centered.  It's about encouraging women to understand the gospel and apply it to their daily walk. And that growth happens when women engage with God through his Word and prayer. Women need Godly fellowship with other women. Whether a woman is: a new mom who rarely sees other adult women, a retiree who is home alone, or something in between. Women need deep, rich and lasting connections that can challenge you as well. In Paul’s letter to Titus, God gives instructions for women in the church to teach younger women to be Godly. Even for the introvert, the Christian walk of sanctification is meant to be done as a community. This reminds ladies that they are not alone in any situation! Smaller, private settings within our women’s ministry offers a safe place for women to be mentored, bounce ideas and tips, and grow in their spiritual disciplines—right alongside other women. We would love for you to be a part of this special group! We meet Wednesday nights at 7 PM, we hope to see you there!
