If you are visiting Maple City Baptist Church for the first time, we hope that there are three things that you notice about our church:
First of all, we emphasize the Bible. The Bible is not an archaic book; it is God’s revelation of Himself to mankind. For this reason, our doctrine, ministries and practices are built on the commands and principles laid out in God’s Word. As individuals, we seek to build our homes, families and lives on the same firm foundation; we trust that the Bible holds the answer for every need of mankind. While music is an important part of worship, the focal point of every service at Maple City Baptist Church will be the preaching and teaching of God’s Word.
Secondly, Maple City places great emphasis on the gospel. We firmly believe that 2000 years ago God became a man in the form of Jesus Christ. He lived a sinless life, died, was buried and rose again to conquer the grave. His sacrifice on our behalf gives mankind hope of eternal life. Christ’s death is sufficient for all mankind; however, it is only by true repentance from sin and faith in Christ that this amazing gift of grace can be received; without it, men and women are destined to a Christ-less eternity in hell. For this reason, we endeavor to preach the gospel at every opportunity possible.
Finally, Maple City emphasizes family. Numerous lessons taught in services and in Sunday School classes are designed to strengthen husband-wife and parent-child relationships. It is essential for believers to practice their Christian faith within their homes, and to build their families around the Word of God. We also believe God designed His church to be a family unit. We strive to maintain a close-knit body of believers in which people from all walks of life are accepted and loved. We take care of our own; when fellow members of the church family are in need, we do everything possible to meet that need and to care for them like family. Our desire as a church family is to edify and encourage one another to grow strong in the Lord and to glorify Him with our lives.
We invite you to come and take it all in for yourself. Join us this next Sunday at 11:00 am for our morning service and 6:00 pm for evening service, and experience the difference in Christ.
