About us

You will find Memorial Baptist Church to be a warm, friendly, and loving church founded on a strong belief in the Bible and Christ's command to love God with all our heart, soul, and mind; and to love our neighbor as ourself (Matthew 22:37-39). 

Choosing a church home is an important decision, and our website has been designed to provide you with the information you need to make an informed and prayerful decision about visiting and considering Memorial Baptist as your church home.

If you would like to join us for our worship service, it begins at 10:15am each Sunday morning. An additional Bible study opportunity is offered at 9am for both adults and children. A nursery is available during both hours.

our mission

At Memorial Baptist Church, our mission is to spur one another on to

Love God, Love People, and Serve the World.

  • Love God. The world is full of misdirected love that leads to pain and suffering. As Christ followers, we believe that anything we do must begin with this: "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might." (Deuteronomy 6:5)

    Loving God is the daily goal for every Christian, but it is specifically expressed in church life through our active participation in corporate worship through song, fellowship, and Christ-exalting preaching
  • Love People. The fruit of loving God is loving people. After quoting the above verse in response to a question regarding what is the greatest commandment, Jesus followed with these words: "a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself." (Matthew 22:39)

    Loving all people is a privilege for every Christian, but it is uniquely expressed in church life through our genuine and loving care for one another in the church body
    . (Philippians 2:1-4)
  • Serve the World. Just as a genuine love for God overflows into a genuine care for one another in the church, the command to love our neighbor is expressed outside of the church body as well.

    Serving the world is expressed through Gospel proclamation and acts of service to those who are yet to trust in Christ as their Savior, whether in our community or in the uttermost parts of the earth
    . (Matthew 28:19-20)

What We believe

A detailed copy of our “Articles of Faith” is available upon request; the fundamentals of our faith may be summarized as follows:

  • Inspiration and Authority of Scripture – God authored the entire Bible – every word of it and every part of it (2 Timothy 3:16).
  • Trinity - We believe in one God, creator and sustainer of all things, eternally coexisting in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; that these are equal in every divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in their work. (Exodus 20:2–3; Matthew 3:16–17; Matthew 28:19; John 1:1; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Revelation 4:11).
  • Humanity We believe that God created all things, including humans. He created them male and female, in His image. We further believe that humans became and are sinners by both nature and choice and are therefore spiritually dead (Genesis 3; Romans 5:10–19; John 1:1–3, 14; Acts 16:3–33; Ephesians 2:1-3; Hebrews 10:4–14).
  • Salvation - We believe in salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. This salvation is based upon the sovereign grace of God, was purchased by Christ on the cross, is received by man through faith apart from any human merit, works, or ritual, and is eternally secured by the finished work of Christ. We further believe salvation results in righteous living and good works. (John 10:28–29; Acts 16:31; Romans 19:9–13; Ephesians 2:8–10; Titus 3:5–8; 1 Petet 1:1–5; 1 John 5).
  • Deity of Jesus Christ – We believe that Jesus is fully God and fully man. He has always existed as God, and will always be God (I John 1:1; John 20:31).
  • Jesus' Virgin Birth – Jesus was born of the virgin Mary (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1) and was sinless (Hebrews 4:15; 1 Peter 2:22). 
  • Jesus' Resurrection – Jesus arose from the grave, triumphing over death, assuring believers of their future resurrection (I Corinthians 15:1-20). 
  • Jesus' Return – Jesus assured His disciples that He will come again (John 14:1-3).  

Our core commitments

"And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers."

—Acts 2:42

The early church was devoted to the Apostles' teaching. Therefore, we endeavor to be Bible-saturated and biblically-guided in all that we do (II Timothy 3:16,17; II Peter 1:3). 

The early church was devoted to the Fellowship. Therefore, we endeavor to prioritize our congregational meetings (Hebrews 10:24,25; I John 1:3ff; Romans 12; I Corinthians 12) and seek to minister to each other (John 13:35).

The early church was devoted to the Breaking of Bread. Therefore, we will endeavor to regularly incorporate a meaningful celebration of the Lord’s Supper into our congregational meetings (Acts 20:7; I Corinthians 11:17-34).  

 The early church was devoted to the Prayers. Therefore, we will endeavor to facilitate corporate prayer times and encourage private prayer (Colossians 4:2; I Thessalonians 5:17; Psalm 62:8; Matthew 6:5-15).
