What Kind of Baptist Church is Millbrook?
The short answer is this: We’re Millbrook’s brand of Baptist. For us, this means listening for God’s call upon our community, and collectively and collaboratively seeking to follow that call. Millbrook is a place where every member is considered (and expected to be!) a minister. It’s a place where everyone is welcomed. It’s a place where everyone is reminded they are children of God. And it’s a place that’s a work in progress. As new individuals come into our community, the uniqueness of Millbrook’s tapestry continues to unfold.
But we do not live in a vacuum. While we remain our own autonomous body, we are affiliated with several larger denominational bodies (Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, Alliance of Baptists, and the Raleigh Baptist Association). We share in collective fellowship and missional endeavors with these organizations. These bodies connect us to a larger world, and the collective Body of Christ.
What is the governance of Millbrook?
Millbrook is a church governed by its members. The work and the decisions of the church are performed by its laity and supported by the counsel of its clergy. Millbrook subscribes to what Baptists call the four essential freedoms:
Soul Freedom — We believe in the priesthood of all believers and affirm the freedom and responsibility of every person to relate directly to God without the imposition of creed or the control of clergy or government.
Bible Freedom — We believe in the authority of Scripture. We believe the Bible, under the Lordship of Christ, is central to the life of the individual and the church. We affirm the freedom and right of every Christian to interpret and apply scripture under the leadership of the Holy Spirit.
Church Freedom —We believe in the autonomy the local church. We believe Millbrook Baptist Church is free, under the Lordship of Christ, to determine our membership and leadership, to order our worship and work, to ordain whomever we perceive as gifted for ministry, and to participate as we
deem appropriate in the larger body of Christ.
Religious Freedom — We believe in the freedom of religion, freedom for religion, and freedom from religion. We support the separation of church and state.
