Transformational Relational Missional


At Macedonia Baptist Church we believe that we should not only be hearers of the Word of God, but we should actively seek opportunities to put the Word of God into practice through Ministry.  No matter what your Spiritual Gifts, we have Ministries to allow you to share them with others.

Jesus provided the pattern for Christian ministry-He came, not to receive service, but to give it (see Matthew 20:28; Mark 10:45; John 13:1-17).  Ministry is giving of everything of yourself without expecting anything, not even a thank you. You do it out of love, nothing else. Jesus told us that the first and greatest commandment was to love God our father with all our heart and soul and strength. But he then added that the second greatest commandment was to love our neighbors as ourselves and that all the laws and teaching of the prophets hung on these two commandments.

The Christian should minister by meeting people's needs with love and humility on Christ's behalf (see Matthew 20:26; Mark 10:43; John 2:5,9; Acts 6:3; Romans 1:1; Galatians 1:10; Colossians 4:12). Christians are to minister to others out of their devotion to Christ and their love for others, whether the other people are believers or unbelievers. Ministry to others should be impartial and unconditional, always seeking to help others as Jesus would.
