What We Believe About...

...the Bible

We believe the Bible is the verbally inspired, inerrant Word of God, and is the all-sufficient and final authority for our faith and practice.

...God

We believe in one God eternally existing in one essence, yet three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

...Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ, who is fully God and fully man, was born of the virgin Mary.

...the Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son; that He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment; and that He ministers to the believer.

...Salvation

We believe that salvation is wholly the work of God, and that it is by grace through faith in the work of Christ alone, resulting in right standing before God.

...Sin

We believe all people are sinners by nature and by choice, and are therefore spiritually dead and in need of a Savior.

...the Church

We believe the church is the body of Christ, consisting of believers who meet locally for worship, growth, and service to God.

...Man

We believe the Genesis account of God's creation of the universe out of nothing by His spoken Word, and His creation of mankind.

...Heaven & Hell

We believe all people will face final judgment: believers to eternal life in heaven, and unbelievers to eternal punishment in hell.

...Satan & Angels

We believe in the reality of angels, both good angels who serve God, and evil angels who serve their leader, Satan.

...Future Events

We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ and His ascension into heaven, and that He will one day return to establish His kingdom.

MBC Core Values

Relevant Bible Teaching

Because God exercises His authority over us through His Word, we will constantly seek to understand, communicate, and apply it to our lives through expository preaching and teaching.

God-Focused Worship

Because God is worthy of our worship, we will devote ourselves to Him in dependent prayer and passionate worship.

Christ-Centered Living

Because authentic commitment to Christ involves our whole life, we will live blameless, holy, and consistent lives as His followers, both in the church, in the family, and in the world.

Intentional Discipleship

Because growth happens best in the context of lives that are connected relationally, we seek to provide opportunities for discipleship, encouraging each other toward maturity and service.

Strategic Ministry

Because we are stewards of the gifts and abilities God has given us, we seek to minister in ways that creatively exercise those gifts in support of our God-given mission.

God-Honoring Excellence

Because all we do represents God to this world, we will glorify Him by doing everything with integrity and excellence.

Outward Focus

Because we are to reach the world around us, we will be mission-minded, seeking to connect with those who need Christ.
