Our Mission

A church’s mission statement neatly explains the church’s reason for existence, its fundamental purpose. A mission answers questions like, “Why are we here?”, “Why do we exist?”, “Why do we do what we do?”, “For whom?” A mission statement communicates purpose and direction for those within and outside the church.

The Mission of The Memorial Baptist Church is to

“Worship God, Share Christ, and to Serve Others.”

Our Vision

A church’s vision is a statement of what or how things could be in the future if they work at listening to God’s leadership and moving with the Spirit.  It guides and gives direction.

The Vision Statement of the Memorial Baptist Church is to
“Become a missional* church spreading the love of Christ through Bible-based preaching, teaching, Bible study and hands-on ministry.”

*The Missional Church
“Much of the language of the church has been built around the concept of missions. We collect mission offerings and we send people to the mission fields. But this language suggests that mission is a program of the church. Therefore, it becomes optional. But being the missional church means being the presence of Christ in this world. It means offering ourselves in service and asking for nothing in return. It means living the mission of Christ.”
