Midland At A Glance

Our mission

        Influencing Our Community with the Gospel of Jesus through Christ-Centered Preaching and Conservative Music!

  • Romans 12:1 says, "Be not conformed to this world." Although many churches today have a seeker-sensitive approach to their ministry, Midland Baptist Church seeks to honor God first. Rather than polling an area to find out what a community wants in a church, we search the scriptures to apply God's commands and principles to our worship.
  • We preach the Bible. God's word is the focal point of all we do and we believe it is relevant to every aspect of our lives.
  • Because we are excited to praise God, we sing theologically rich hymns and other conservative forms of music using a piano, organ, and orchestra instruments. We have one style of worship service, because we worship one God! Worship is not about us and our feelings; worship is about exalting God!
  • We love to welcome visitors to our church and work to keep a very friendly atmosphere!
  • Midland Baptist Church is a place where the entire family can learn more about our great God.

High view of scripture

  • The Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God (II Timothy 3:16, II Peter 1:20,21; John 10:36). Inspiration refers to the process whereby God breathed out the words of Holy Scripture by moving holy men of God to speak and/or record His Word accurately with the final product being an inerrant Bible in the original manuscripts.
  • MBC preaching does not surround the psychology or popular theologies of the day, but rather faithfully strives to "rightly divide the Word of Truth." The preaching at MBC is applied in practical ways to our lives today.

Independent Baptist

  • We are free to follow God's Word without a mother church or organization telling us what to do or how the church should work.
  • We have Baptist distinctives:
    1. Biblical Authority
    2. Autonomy of the Local Church
    3. Priesthood of the Believer
    4. Two Ordinances:
        • Communion
          • Baptism by emersion
          1. Individual acceptance of Jesus Christ as the only way to God
          2. Spiritual growth
          3. Two Offices:
              • Pastors
              • Deacons
