pointing the world to Christ through love and service ...
In 2008, we identified a strengths-based vision for our congregation, rooted in our best experiences as a church. After reflection and refinement this statement was declared:
At Midway Baptist Church, there is an eagerness and freedom to worship, learn, and serve others in Christ. Everyone is valued. Everyone has a place.
Everyone is loved and supported… every step of the way.
We also settled on a single phrase that seemed to sum up the whole reason for our existence:
Midway Baptist Church: Pointing the World to Christ through Love and Service
We believe we are at our best when we are:
- Forming children and youth in the way of Christ;
- Making a difference in our community and world through hands-on service;
- Building loving friendships through Sunday School and other small-group experiences;
- Bringing together people from different generations and backgrounds;
- Worshiping God in a free and vibrant way;
- Providing opportunities to grow and serve outside the walls of the church.
