About our church
Sharing the Journey - Life is meant to be lived together. We care for one another in the church and we build relationships in our wider community, making God's presence tangible by being present with one another, encouraging and helping one another in action and in our words, and also by enjoying life together and having fun along the way!
Growing in Jesus' Footsteps - Christian life involves growth and transformation. Jesus invites disciples to "Follow Him" and so we seek to walk with Jesus, as we are, and we discover that we are being changed in the process. As we serve, as we seek, as we respond to God, we are challenged, transformed, and find that life gets bigger as we go.
There's a reason we talk about walking in Jesus' footsteps as a journey - sometimes two steps forward and one back (or even the other way around) - but our confidence and hope is in the God who calls and invites on the road.
"One of the great liabilities of life is that all too many people find themselves living amid a great period of social change, and yet they fail to develop the new attitudes, the new mental responses, that the new situation demands. They end up sleeping through a revolution." - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Transformation and growth are two words that describe what happens in our lives as we get serious about following Jesus in how we act and relate to one another and to God. It also describes who we are as a group of people who together are seeking to follow Jesus. Memorial Baptist Church just celebrated its 60th anniversary. In that space of time, God's character hasn't changed. God's promises and offer of new life through Jesus haven't changed. But our world has changed! And we want to be found faithful to God's mission in our time and place.
