Who We Are

Multicultural church meeting the needs of a diversified population.

New England Baptist Church is reaching the lost by personal soulwinning and supporting world missions. The first Bible study was held on February 11, 1974 with three visitors. On June 16, 1974 the church was officially formed with thirteen charter signing members. They soon outgrew their small living room meeting place and began renting a church building in Stoneham. Four years later, the church purchased our present building formerly the Mystic Congregational Church (circa 1875) in Medford Square. In September of 1976, New England Christian Academy opened its doors for the first time enrolling seven students. Today, New England Christian Academy continues to provide a Christ centered education for the churches youth.

Dr. Thomas Michael

Growing up on a farm in the hill country of Maryland helped instill in me many important lifetime habits. One of those habits being church attendance. My earliest memories of childhood include Sunday morning services at our local Lutheran parish. There, I was sprinkled, dedicated, and received my First Communion. Singing in the choir, lighting the candles and mowing the grass were avenues in which I contributed to my parent's church. As I grew into adulthood, I began to lose interest in church. To me church was a trial to be endured and relief washed over me each Sunday morning as the service closed. I Dr. Thomas W. Michael always thought of myself as a Christian and hoped if I did my very best I would go to Heaven. Imagine my surprise when my friend Mike a born again Christian insisted he knew he was going to Heaven. "Be careful, Mike, God might strike you dead for being presumptuous." I replied in ignorance. At this time, I was twenty years old and had explored all options of happiness. Cars, money, and girlfriends failed to satisfy me. I was left wondering, "Is this all there is to life?" While attending Mike's church, I heard the pastor preach truths from the Bible that I had never heard before. He shared that we all have sinned and Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty of our sin. Never before, had I been personally confronted with my sinfulness and personal responsibility of either accepting or rejecting Christ's shed blood as the payment for my sin. One Sunday evening following the service, Mike took me by the pastor's home as I had some questions to ask him. The pastor kindly answered each of my questions from the Bible. I then realized that even though I was religious, I was not going to Heaven. Knowing I must make a definite decision to either accept or reject what Jesus Christ had done for me on the cross, I prayed and received Christ as my personal Saviour. This life changing event took place forty-two years ago and I have not regretted it since. Believing that only true peace and fulfillment comes from knowing your sins are paid for and that Heaven is your eternal destiny I have strived to share this good news with others. This has been my goal as pastor of the New England Baptist Church of Medford for the past thirty three years. If you question your eternal destiny or if you desire more information, please contact us. We would love to be of a personal assistance to you.

    Pastor Thomas Michael does not walk with God. He walks alone, spewing apocrypha, and in impiety he claims it as truth. I pray he one day finds himself aligned with God’s teachings and not with ones that he has invented in his own hubris.
  • Open minded
    This guy is an intolerant jerk who thinks he knows what's best for everyone.
  • Medford Resident
    Loser pastor putting pamphlets on cars telling people if they aren’t Christian they’re hell bound and gays are disgusting
  • Anonymous
    Pastor Thomas Michael is a bigoted, hateful man who does not seem to understand the "love thy neighbor" part of God's message. He also seemed to forget Jesus was a Jew before he told our Jewish family that we're going to hell.

    it teaches who to hate
  • Taylor C.
    This pastor is spewing hate, bigotry and ignorance in pamphlets in local parking lots. How beliefs are disgusting and wrong.
  • Kathleen
    This church is not loving or accepting of all people like they say. God loves all his children, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. Spreading hateful speech and condemning others for being who they are is the antithesis of God’s love. I am hurt and saddened by the actions of this church. I pray that God will show Brother Thomas the error of his hate-filled ways.
  • Nancy Ruth Levy
    I adore the small red printed Personal Bibles! Perfect as they are, we doll collectors can stash them in a pocket neatly. So small but NO, such a comfort. As I age gifts are less affordable. Could you send me more? Address Nancy Ruth Levy...373 Lake Ave. Apt. 1, Manchester, NH. 03103. We are commanded to raise our voices praisefully.....God wins with us!
