Welcome to the Mission Boulevard Baptist Church web site. We are so glad that you are visiting us on the internet. We hope to visit with you at our church location as well or in one of our Bible study groups in town.
We have a relaxed, friendly environment. We’re like family, so you won’t experience that awkward institutional and commercialized feeling. You will see our members smiling and talking to each other before, after, and in between service times. We sing congregational hymns, listen to music provided by members who organize quartets, duets, and small groups. Sometimes, we have solos. We pray, preach, and present seminars. Missionaries come and share their calling and burden with us too. Sometimes, we show informative videos, and sometimes we have a puppet show. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________________________________________
When you arrive Sunday morning, you can park in our large front parking lot. And when you walk through the front door, you will probably be greeted by one of our friendly deacons. He’ll give you a church bulletin and ask you to sign our guest book.
Our children join us in the first hour of worship Sunday morning at 9:30am. Then we take a break so the children can go to children’s church in the back building. They sing, play Bible games, listen to Bible stories, and have a great time together led by loving teachers.
Sunday evening at 6:00pm, we gather in study groups at the church to the study the Bible. We always have a Bible survey lesson being taught, a discipleship training class, and a family/marriage class. Sometimes, we have other topics being taught for a month or two. At about 6:30pm, we go to ministry teams to discuss the lesson just heard or to discuss activities of ministry coming up. Ministry teams are small groups where members and visitors can interact and make our church ministry more personal. Then, at about 7:15pm, we gather in the assembly building for church service to sing and to hear God’s Word preached.
Wednesday evenings we meet in ministry teams for prayer. Prayer needs are discussed and missionary letters are read and prayed over. This important time broadens our mission perspective and burden. Then, at about 7:15pm, we gather in the assembly building for church service. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________
We are more than a Sunday and Wednesday church. Members meet throughout the week in small groups to study a book of the Bible or a topic of interest from Revelation and end time events to discipleship or family topics or the book of Romans. We also have a recovery ministry that meets every Friday evening called called Crossover, which is a branch of Reformers Unanimous. There is also a women’s study and a men’s study. Members also stay in touch through social media like Facebook. Our prayer page keeps us aware of prayer requests. And if you are a teenager, come and join our youth group, make friends, and grow spiritually.
College students have a campus ministry team at church as well as a campus center for meetings at the BIG Yellow house. It serves as a meeting place and as a dorm for girls. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________
Career singles have a place in our church as well and new visitors are always welcome to come and join us. You will make good friends fast.
Young couples also have a ministry to be a part of in the Contact ministry.
There are many ministry opportunities at Mission Blvd. Baptist Church to take advantage of either as a recipient or as a laborer. We are always praying and asking God to add new laboring members to our church. Come and visit us. Find friends and meet others who desire to follow Jesus Christ.
