Community Baptist Church is a vibrant, cohesive community of faith, where the Gospel lives at the core of church life. Since June 10, 1945 this church has been an integral part of the Newhallville area of New Haven. The congregation continues to serve the larger New Haven community as a beacon of light, a catalyst for change, a resource for the struggling, a haven for youth, and a center for the teaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
