Ridge Baptist Church being established in the late 1800’s has been spreading the good news of the gospel for over 120 years. Come join us to hear simple Bible teaching and enjoy warm Christian fellowship. This is an assembly of believers that love our Lord Jesus Christ, each other and our community.
In July of 2014 Pastor Antonio, (Tony) Muniz was called to be the minister at Ridge Baptist Church. Tony and his wife, Brenda, moved to Lubec August 13, 2014 after he pastored churches in Ohio and South Carolina.
Pastor Tony was reared in Bucksport, Maine and graduated from Bangor Christian High School. He has a Bachelor’s Degree in Ministry and a Master’s Degree in Theology. His grandparents were from Cherryfield and his great-grandparents from Steuben.
After feeling the desire to minister more in the community, Pastor Tony mentioned this burden to one of our church members. This brother, having been on the fire department before his terminal illness, encouraged Pastor Tony to become the chaplain for the Lubec Fire Department. In January of 2015 Pastor Tony joined the fire department. In addition, he has a weekly Bible study at Marshall Healthcare, a preaching ministry at Campobello Lodge Nursing Home, Campobello, NB Canada one Sunday a month and a weekly men’s Bible study in the parsonage.
