Grace Reformed Baptist Church of Long Island held its first worship service on January 1, 1995. The union of First Baptist Church of Merrick with Calvary Baptist Church of Amityville has formed this work. Both of these churches served their respective communities for over 35 years before uniting together as one body.
Over a period of several years, the two churches maintained fellowship with one another by having joint picnics, cantatas and special services together. During this time, the hearts of the people from both congregations were graciously being knit together. In God's due time, the two congregations united together to form Grace Reformed Baptist Church of Long Island.
