Pastor Thomas Smith is the Pastor Emeritus of the Sovereign Grace Baptist Church. He was with the NJ State Police for 14 years prior to being called into the ministry. He attended Northeastern Bible College in Essex Falls New Jersey and has been in the ministry since October of 1975.The main focus of his ministry is the teaching and preaching of the word of God with a strong emphasis on Prayer. He has always endeavored to teach the truth of the word of God in an uncompromising way and his emphasis toward prayer is such that he will never compromise the prayer meeting under any circumstance. He continues to exhort the brethren to attend all meetings. He loves his congregation and his desire for them is to take full advantage of the means of grace that God has given to us to persevere and endure in the faith until the end. He takes this ministry seriously as one who has to give an account. So in light of all this, it is not surprising to see his passion for the ministries of the church such as: prayer, discipleship, and the various forms of outreach like Sermon Audio to name a few.
