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.
a congregation of faith
We invite you to meet and hear from Pastor Bennett and the pastoral staff at a special time of fellowship, learning about MMBC and picking up some more ministry connections. It is our desire for you to find a place to belong, to grow, and to give your life away. One of the best ways to begin that journey is by attending either a Newcomers’ Night or Reception. It is here you will get a good feel for MMBC, it’s purpose, values, and mission.

Solid Footings I (Topics: Kingdom Gospel, Salvation: Security & Assurance and Portraits of Salvation)
Christ’s gospel message includes much more than simply the story that His life and death lead to our salvation. It includes not only what salvation really is and how God intends to save the human race from its present dilemma, but it reveals our glorious destiny in the Kingdom of God. It’s the HOPE we have in Christ, even now that this course will present.
Mark 1:14-15 —-“Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe the gospel.’”
Solid Footings II (Topics: Knowing the Father, Knowing the Son and knowing the Holy Spirit)
God is so great. and our belief in Him is so important, that even the smallest change in our perspective on who He is and how He acts can transform our lives. This course will help you understand that your beliefs about God set the course of your life.
Romans 1:20 —- “For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see His invisible qualities—His eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.”
Solid Footings III (Topics: What is the Bible? Personal Devotions and Life After Death)
Life change comes through a deepening of our conviction that the Bible, as God’s Word, can be trusted more than our feelings, values, opinions, and culture. This course provides this wisdom and understanding.
Philippians 1:9-10 —- “And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ.”
Solid Footings IV (Topics: Spiritual Warfare, Growing as a Child of God and Giving My Life Away)
Sometimes God may feel far away. What’s happening? This course presents the truths about our adversary, the devil and our protection and power in and through Christ.
Ephesians 6:10-12 —- “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
