Welcome to New Disciples Baptist
New Disciples Baptist Church started as My Radical Church, an outreach ministry- a ministry with the intention of spreading the love of Jesus Christ and reaching the homeless population of Rock Hill, South Carolina. March of 2020, the ministry became New Disciples Baptist Church a new church plant still local to Rock Hill, South Carolina, located on, 742 North Anderson Road.
The Mission Field
The location of New Disciples is extremely important. We are right next door to the new Carolina Panthers practice facility in Rock Hill. This will rapidly become the fastest growing area in South Carolina. It will have the tallest building in the state. New apartment complexes are sprouting up all around and we are certain that many other new residential developments will soon begin to appear. People will be moving into the area from all over the world. New Disciples is the only Baptist church in the center of this exciting mission field and you can be part of God's work to reach it with the gospel.
The Family of God
As a church, we come together with one objective- to reach the community, build relationships, and save the lost. As a family, we are connected together with Christ as the focus of our studies, doing His will for His purpose. Surely the Lord deserves all of our praise and glory- 1 John 4:19
Being a newly planted church, we are seeking families and individuals who are on fire for Christ and eager to learn and share The Good News of The Gospel. As we grow, we are also looking for people to become involved with leadership, as well as those who would like to direct worship services and Sunday school for adult and children ministries. People with an overall a passion to jump in and grow our church, and community family.
"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even until the end of the world. Amen"- Matthew 28:19-20
Every Thursday evening dozens of people pass through our parking lot at 742 N Anderson Rd. to shop at the food trucks parked on the four corners and at other booths in between. Our volunteers tend to our prayer booth to meet shoppers and pray with those who request it. We are always ready to share the gospel with anyone who will listen.
To attract visitors to the booth, we offer free popcorn and bottled water. We also offer each visitor a free Bible, a variety of Bible tracts and an invitation to visit our church.
Pictured above are the pastor's wife, Barbara Roth, on the left, and Shieterrick Melton on the right. It is fun to always meet new people every week. The booth has also become very popular with the children, so Barbara has begun handing out free candy also.
Boxes of Love Delivered to Nursing Home
On December 24, 2020, the car was loaded with over 60 boxes full of gifts that were donated to New Disciples Baptist by many caring friends.
The Boxes of Love project was organized by Shieterrick Melton, who utilized her skills to promote it on the internet, including Facebook. The response was overwhelming and she had plenty of small gifts for each resident of the Agape nursing facility.
Pictured to the left is Shieterrick with some of the gifts around the tree in the nursing home. The residents there were so excited to see her. Being quarantined and not able to spend time with their loved ones has been very difficult for those senior citizens. Shieterrick has also spent many days in the hospital and therefore has a very special place in her heart and understanding for what our seniors are going through.
Thanks go out to Shieterrick and all of those who helped make this project successful. May God richly bless you all!
