Dr. Jennings was saved at the age of eight where he attended the New True Vine Baptist Church pastored by his father Dr. James Jennings Sr. He continued to grow spiritually as his love for the word of God intensified.
A portion of the mission statement of each New Providence Ministry is to contribute into the lives of the people in the community by providing service and support in an atmosphere of acceptance, dignity and love.
Pastor Everett & Lady Barbara Jennings, Leaders and Members of New Providence Baptist Church welcome you to our church family. To share our lives together is our honor and privilege. We pray that you are showered with the love, joy and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

However you feel most comfortable. We do not have a dress code. Some worship in jeans and sneakers, others worship in suits and leather-soled shoes. We don’t believe that Jesus cares what you wear, and neither do we.
We do not ask visitors to stand. It is important to us that visitors be able to worship intimately and comfortably. However, we hope that you will introduce yourselves to us after the worship service. We love to see new faces.
Yes, we provide the Bible Institute taught by the Pastor each Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. and Thursday at 6:30 p.m. The course of study includes a syllabus, outline and weekly take home study material. At the conclusion of the multiple week session, a certificate of completion is awarded.
Membership involves a couple of steps. The first is the confession of Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. The second requires the completion of a couple of courses that familiarize, or refresh, you with the basic tenets of who we are.
