About Us

Newport News Baptist Church is an Independent, Fundamental Baptist Church dedicated to reaching the lost with the Gospel and anchoring believers in the truth of God’s Word.

Our Pastor

Pastor Ben Webster grew up in a Christian home in Smithfield, Virginia.  He was saved at the age of six and surrendered to the call to preach at the age of 14 under the ministry of Pastor Dan Gray at Calvary Baptist Church in Smithfield, Virginia.  God would eventually lead Pastor Webster to attend Crown College in Powell, Tennessee; where he would meet his wife Ashley.  After graduation in 2010, God led Pastor Webster to work under Dr. John Seay as his Assistant Pastor at the Frederick Baptist Church in Frederick, Maryland.  He served there for seven years, during which he was able to gain valuable experience in many aspects of ministry.  God would eventually lead  Pastor Webster and his family to move to Newport News and partner with Calvary Baptist Church in Smithfield, Virginia to plant the Newport News Baptist Church in July of 2019.

Our Story

The burden to plant a church in Newport News began in the heart of Pastor Dan Gray years ago.  Due to frequent trips to Newport News for kidney dialysis, Pastor Gray began to see the need for an Independent Baptist Church to be planted in the Ft. Eustis area.  He then led Calvary Baptist Church to pray for two things:  a pastor and a place.  The church prayed this way for almost 10 years.  Pastor Gray went home to be with the Lord in 2018 before his burden was ever realized.  God answered the prayer they faithfully prayed for so many years when He called Pastor Ben Webster and his family to Newport News.  After much work and prayer, the Newport News Baptist Church held it’s Grand Opening Service on July 7, 2019.
