History of Maranatha


We would like to invite you to join us in the ministry God has given us here in Ceiba, PR! We look forward to seeing you soon!



Maranatha Baptist Church is a independent, fundamental, missions-hearted church. God has been good to this ministry which started in 1976 as a ministry to Roosevelt Roads Navy Base. It was a thriving church over the years as well as the home of Maranatha Baptist Academy. In 2005, the base closed down and the ministry here came very close to shutting it's doors when almost all it's members were shipped out. In the end, the school was closed, however the church kept it's doors open with a few willing to begin again. God greatly blessed the faithfulness of those few, and today Maranatha is a growing church still ministering to the English speaking in Puerto Rico. In the Fall of 2009, MBC was restarted from these "faithful few," and has steadily grown in attendance. Marantha celebrated its 40th anniversary in May, 2016.  All to the Glory of God!
