Evangelical Baptist Church was founded in 1951 by Pastor John Eseppi, who continued to serve the Lord as shepherd of this flock until the Lord promoted him to Glory in 1999. As a young man, John was raised religious, but he did not have a personal relationship with Jesus, until, after much searching, he heard the Gospel and trusted Jesus Christ to save him from sin. Soon after his conversion he went off to Bible College and returned with a burden to start a church in his hometown. God blessed many years of labor and faithfulness.
In 1958 the young congregation bought property on the corner of Winsted Road and Main Street in Torrington. The church banded together and built a church building on that site and it still stands today reaching Torrington for Christ. The church ministry grew to include a weekly radio broadcast, several children’s ministries, and a strong testimony citywide. Through the years many folks in the Torrington area have heard of the good news of salvation by grace through faith alone through the ministry of this Independent, Fundamental Baptist Church. In this church, you will find people who love the Bible, love the Lord, love to sing, and love others.
