Our New Campus


Frederica Baptist continues developing a beautiful 13-acre campus on Marsh’s Edge Lane that will serve as an effective, multi-generational ministry and discipling tool on northern St. Simons Island, where the Word of God is preached. God has blessed our congregation with this land which fulfills the original desire in the hearts of this church family for a Baptist presence on the north end of the island.

Through the generous giving of members and friends of Frederica, funds from the Built Together Capital Campaign (2016 – early 2019) provided for the clearing of land and the adding of fill dirt to prepare the site for the new building. Architects have designed plans for the first phase of the campus and construction has begun.

Forward in Faith, a second capital campaign, was launched in March 2019. Now that the land has been prepared, the architectural drawings  completed, and construction on the building has begun, we wait with anticipation to see how God works through His people to provide the remaining funds needed for our project.

These are exciting times for Frederica Baptist and our surrounding community. We invite you to join with us. Our new location will provide an excellent tool from which we can reach people with the life-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ. If you would like more information, please click here.

History of Frederica Baptist

Before Frederica Baptist Church was an organized church, 39 individuals came together in 2002 with a unified and committed desire to start a new Baptist church on the north end of St. Simons Island. After many planning meetings, and discussions and much prayer, the group, plus many others, celebrated their first worship service together at Lovely Lane Chapel (Epworth By the Sea) on July 14, 2002. Two months later at a “Membership Sunday” service, 75 people indicated their desire to be a vital part of this new body of Christ on St. Simons Island.

After meeting in temporary spaces at Epworth By the Sea and at Oglethorpe Point Elementary School, Frederica Baptist purchased the currently facility at 1700 Frederica Road in 2003 as a home for the church ministries until the vision for a north St. Simons facility is realized. The 1700 Frederica Road space provides areas for worship, fellowship, small group Bible studies, children’s programs, youth programs, adult programs, music programs, and much more. Still, the heart of Frederica Baptist members is to build a more effective tool for reaching our community with the Gospel and teaching them as they grow in their relationship with Jesus, our Savior.

In addition to reaching our local community, the Frederica family is especially full of love and devotion for those across the world. A strong missions emphasis has been at the core of Frederica Baptist since the early days.

After praying and searching for the new, permanent site, the church members were graciously given 13 acres on Marshes Edge Lane. What an amazing blessing from our great God and we thank Him for His answer to our prayers.

During the difficult economic times between 2007 and 2012, Frederica Baptist successfully continued its ministries and programs at the 1700 Frederica Road building. The church family was united in its belief that God was telling them to wait on pursuing a new building.

As the national economy began to strengthen in 2013, a long-range planning committee of Frederica Baptist, began to diligently focus its efforts for the relocation of the church to the property God had provided. To raise needed funds for the new church campus, two capital campaigns were initiated. The first, “Built Together,” began in 2016. The second and current campaign, “Forward in Faith,” encourages sacrificial giving so that the Frederica Baptist family will increase its ability to minister to the people of Glynn County and across the globe.
