Our History

Bayside Chapel was born of humble beginnings, with a dozen people meeting in a living room in 1991. As the congregation grew larger the living room grew smaller. In the mid-90's Bayside then moved their worship services to the Russel O. Brackman Middle School in Barnegat. In June of 2006, with a congregation size of 450, we moved to our current facility on West Bay Avenue in Barnegat. Since then, the Lord has blessed us and allowed the congregation to double in size, to add an education wing for our various ministries, and to plant a church in Toms River.
