The New Providence District of the Bahamas Baptist Union of Churches was
established in 1969 under the leadership of the late Superindent, Rev. Enoch Backford Sr.
Rev. Backford, a man of great foresight, at the time, recognized the need for a
greater fellowship among the Union churches in New Providence. It was a step of faith and vision and today, we thank God for having brought the New Providence District to witness the celebration of its Golden Jubilee during the year 2009.
