Who We Are
Millbrook Baptist Church shares God’s love by being an open and inclusive community of faith, developing Christian disciples through spiritual growth, and serving the world through missions and ministry.
All are welcome here. Once here, all are nourished, encouraged and challenged in their faith journey. As we journey, we do so collectively, loving one another and trusting the path that God leads us on. We are travelers and we’re always looking for new companions.
We believe that Bible study and worship are essential as we work to make a difference in our community and world. To expand its opportunities and involvement, MBC affiliates with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, the Alliance of Baptists and the Raleigh Baptist Association. These affiliations provide avenues to support programs and initiatives that complement our commitment to:
- Every member being a minister
- Local and global missions
- Ministries addressing societal and personal concerns
- Education honoring free and open inquiry
- Ecumenical endeavors involving the larger faith community
Having been led to join this church by the spirit of God and having confessed our sin and having been baptized in the name of the Trinity, we do now before God enter this covenant with each other joined in Christ’s body:
- To celebrate as a community of faith through the worship of God, prayers and the observance of the ordinances.
- To establish and maintain an open and inclusive fellowship, which affirms and accepts all who seek to profess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
- To affirm and to participate with other expressions of the Christian faith.
- To be faithful and cheerful stewards of our personal resources of money, talents, time, and material goods, giving sacrificially to the ministry of the church.
- To share in each other’s joys and bear each other’s burdens and sorrows.
- To create, support and participate in opportunities to grow in the Christian faith.
- To be intentionally involved in the work of the church through missions, ministry and evangelism.
- To maintain a consistent and positive witness to the Christian faith in both our public and private lives.
