We are a group of followers of Jesus Christ that exist to Love God, Serve Others, and Share Jesus with the community around us. We value our relationships with each other and cherish the opportunity to grow closer to God. The Bible and the Holy Spirit's leading in our lives helps us extend love and grace to those without hope.
OUR MISSION / PURPOSE
Our mission / purpose statement is Love God, Serve People, and Share Jesus. This statement reflects who we are and want to be. We strive to be a church without walls. Jesus calls for us to reach the lost and the broken. We want to be like the church from the book of Acts, to see our community changed. This is reflected in our vision statement "Transforming our world through the love of Christ."
Our core values include Loving unconditionally, Finding hope, Growing in grace, Serving joyfully, Living generously, Sharing Jesus, and Embracing the truth. These values guide our church in both our philosophy and decision making.
Our church was founded in 1963 when a group of people from Swift Creek Baptist left to form a new church.
The first service of Midway Baptist Church was held at I I :00 am, Sunday, August 25, 1963 in the Swift Creek School gym.
Midway Baptist continued to meet in the gym for church services and Swift Creek Fire Department and Horace Airington's basement for other meetings until a church building was completed.
On January 12, 1964 the name of the church was changed to Macedonia Baptist Church.
On Sunday, May 31, 1964 the first worship service was held in the new building. It was followed by a week-long revival.
On August 18, 1974 a new Sanctuary was dedicated to the glory of God.
In June of 2000, the Church began our 4th building program, which involved a building expansion for a weekday education program, The Children's Place.
The church retired its debt in 2020.
We are currently without a pastor, but we see this as an exciting time for our church. We are beginning the process of searching for a new pastor. If you have any needs, please contact the church office and someone will be able to assist you.
Steve Sharpe is our worship leader. He is originally from New Jersey but now calls North Carolina home. He has a heart for music ministry and leads with heartfelt passion. Steve has a lengthy background and has served at many different churches.
Scott has served in our youth ministry for over ten years in various roles. He’s been around so long that most of our youth call him “Dad.” Of course, there is a story that goes along with that, but you’ll have to ask if you want to know. Scott is currently serving as the interim youth minister.
Our children’s minister position is currently vacant, however, Melanie and our children’s team is passionate about partnering with parents to help raise the next generation to know and love Jesus. If you have any questions about our children’s program, please use the email below or call the church office.
