History of the New Omega Baptist Church
In 1979, under the inspiration and guidance of the Holy Spirit, New Omega Baptist Church (NOBC) was founded and organized by the Reverend Fred L. Richmond, Sr., with his wife, Barbara. The initial organizational meeting was held March 19, 1979, with seven members at 1718 Skyline Dr. in Racine, WI. The organizational ceremony of the church and the investiture of Rev. Fred L. Richmond, Sr., as its Pastor, was conducted on Sunday, August 19, 1979. The official organizational ceremony of the church and investiture of Rev. Fred L. Richmond Sr. was conducted by the Southeastern District Association of Wisconsin General Baptist State Convention, Incorporated, of which the late Reverend Louis Beauchamp was president.
Rev. Fred Richmond Sr. and the congregation continued to follow in the footsteps of Christ and acquired the property at 1200 Racine St. with the first service held on the third Sunday in February of 1980. In 1986, New Omega purchased three more properties, which were used for parking and a “Mercy House” which gave housing to the needy. In 1996, two more properties were purchased with the plans for “Ministry Building.” In 1998, God changed our plans to build and renovate at 1200 Racine St. and the property located at 5731 Northwestern Avenue was purchased. The first service was held on March 21, 1999.
To date, New Omega has approximately 350 members on roll. New Omega continues to this date to flourish under the leadership of Pastor Fred L. Richmond Sr., continuing in prayer and diligently studying the word of God.
