Julius R. Bennett, Senior Pastor
Jesus was the ultimate servant and we all have a gift with which we can also serve others. Giving our lives away in service is a key part of life in our church.
Are you already doing something such as coaching a youth sports team, helping at your child’s school, being a team mom, etc.? Don’t stop. Those count! We love to see our church involved in the community as well as meeting needs in the church.
God made us to be managers of His resources and part of life at Macedonia is being a willing giver. Matthew 6:21 says, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” We want to be people who follow Christ in our giving and not just in our words. For many who are new to the church, the concept of tithing 10% can seem overwhelming. We encourage everyone to take their giving to God in prayer. Can’t do 10%? Start smaller and see what happens! Trust God with what you are able to give and watch what He does.
Growing your faith in the Lord is rewarding when you have a faithful Shepherd. Our congregation's senior pastor is eager to help you become the disciple God wants us all to be. You're welcome to join our Christian community at any time. Pastor Bennett believes in creating a faith community that's as rooted in the gospels as it is in one another. Join us and see how our community comes together to praise.
We are excited that you have a desire to follow the Lord’s example in baptism (Mark 1:9). Here at Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church we practice baptism by immersion as it provides a clearer picture of our new life in Christ (Romans 6:3-4; II Corinthians 5:17). Remember, baptism is not a means of salvation but is an act of obedience (Matthew 28:19-20; I John 2:3) in identifying your life, as a believer (Acts 18:8), in Christ.
We believe that God wants to change us and use us to change our world with the love of Christ. Our purpose is to be transformed people who transform our world and we do that best if:
1) We do it together
2) We serve one another and the world around us
3) We give of our time, energy and resources.
