58th ANNIVERSARY SUNDAY
NEW TESTAMENT BAPTIST CHURCH
Our Lord declared: “… upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” (Matt 16:18)
In 1959 Pastor and Nita Joiner came out of Bible College by faith to Tucson, believing it to be God’s perfect will for them to plant a local Baptist Church. An elementary school was leased for three years until the purchase of the present five-acre site on Craycroft Road.
The Church’s outreach in the “Old Pueblo” for almost sixty years has included a Christian school, all-Bible Sunday School for all ages, bus/van ministry, youth ministries, summer camps, vacation Bible schools, AWANA program for children, ladies’ ministry, deaf ministry, senior citizen’s luncheon, care-centers ministry, Reformers Unanimous (addictions program).
In January, the Church completed its 52nd Annual Missions Conference. Over the years nearly thirty-percent of the Church’s total income has gone to Missionaries, mission projects / planting local churches, evangelists, Baptist Colleges, planting over 100 Baptist Churches across America, fellowship/seminar meetings, etc. Over 350 members felt called out of our Church to attend Bible Colleges in preparation for God’s service as preachers, missionaries, school teachers, Church staff, youth leaders, and Church leaders (faithful laymen and laywomen).
Let’s unite together throughout this special day Praising and Honoring our wonderful God who has allowed us on this sacred site the privileged to graciously proclaim the Gospel in Tucson, in Arizona, across America, and around the world (Matt 28:18-20).
ALERT: Traffic & Access Complications
Glenn Street was “messed up” for a month and, now again, probably for another month. Please access our Church at the Craycroft Road & San Francisco Street entrances. Be extremely cautious of any “little ones” in the parking lots.

Visit our Tract Racks
We have various tracts for the unsaved, the saved, the deaf, and the addicted. Please take some tracts to distribute to people you meet, and to friends and relatives. We have tracts in both foyers. Keep some tracts in your pocket or purse.
We especially need a van driver for Friday nights. We also need a Kidz club teacher.
After each service, we make available to families in need of a bag of non-perishable groceries (limited to one bag per month). To help us keep our pantry stocked we welcome you to bring in non-perishable items. We do not need any vegetables at this time. We are short on peanut butter and canned meats such as tuna, chicken, Vienna sausage, spam, etc. Please bring your items to the front foyer and let an usher know. Richard and Judy Sabin oversee this ministry.
Please look at the expiration dates. We cannot give out expired food items.
