Pastoral Message


Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. My name is Kent D. Carpenter; I am the pastor of the St. John Baptist Church of Pennsauken.

I want to thank you for logging on to our website. SJBC-Pennsauken is a Bible-based, Christ centered church. We provide an atmosphere of worship that is loving, warm and friendly. We endeavor to meet people where they are in life and lead them to where the Lord desires for them to be.

We believe the best way to serve the Lord Jesus Christ is by living a godly life and by serving our fellow man. Jesus said, “Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” (Matt. 25:40) 

I hope that you will continue to peruse our website, to get a better understanding of our vision and mission. Check out our services, Bible studies, prayer meeting and ministries at the church. I hope that our website is a blessing to you and that it might lead you to visit our Church. We are conveniently located at 2323 Merchantville Avenue, between Westfield Avenue and Route 130.

Most of all, I want you to know that God loves you, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16); and we love you too!


Yours in Christ’s Service,
Rev. Kent D. Carpenter, Pastor
