A Vision for Discipleship
You can see the heart of Memorial Baptist Church in our vision: to be a church for all people who want to experience God's welcome; understand God's word, and join in God's work.
This vision forms the structure in which Memorial Baptist Church operates and functions. Because this vision is so important to us we would like to share with you what each piece means in more detail.
Experience God's Welcome
In worship and fellowship we want to provide Christian hospitality so that you enjoy God’s presence among God’s people (Romans 15:7). Sunday morning worship gives us a center from which everything else flows. Loving God above all else is our first priority.
Understand God's Word
Through a variety of Bible study and discussion groups you are invited to take the next step in the Christian life (2 Timothy 3:16-17). In these small groups you can grow with others in your understanding of God’s plan to give each of us a fulfilling life now and forever.
Join In God's Work
We move from welcome to understanding to service. Every Christian wants finally to join in God’s work in the world (Matthew 5:16). We find purpose for our lives in service. We find the deepest joy in service. A variety of service opportunities arise throughout the year at Memorial. We have a goal of committing fifty percent of our efforts and resources in causes outside the church family.
Each follower of Christ has a spiritual gift. Finding and employing your gift in service will make your discipleship full and meaningful. You will be blessed, and you will bless others.
Explore the wonder and happiness and wholeness that God offers all of us. Experience God’s welcome. Understand God’s word. Join in God’s work. That’s our vision at Memorial Baptist Church, and we would love for you to take a look at what God is doing among us. We are a church for all people.
