Families Love Medulla Baptist Church

Hear from our beloved families about why they adore Medulla Baptist Church, where they find a welcoming community, meaningful connections, and a place where their faith and values are nurtured with love and care.
“Twenty six years ago, my husband and I were looking for a church; contacted Medulla to find out their starting time and came that first Sunday. The music immediately drew me in, helping me to begin worshiping the Lord almost the moment we stepped inside. We were welcomed, befriended, and have never regretted joining with like-minded Christians. Our Bible study class is one of the most loving compassionate group of people with whom we have ever been involved, praying for, encouraging and ministering to each other. Our Pastor speaks and teaches the Word of God without apology, and I learn something each time I hear him. Jesus Christ is our Saviour and is so proclaimed each time we meet.”

“We started attending Medulla almost 3 years ago after hearing Pastor Mark’s sermons on Facebook. We joined because the Pastor preaches sound doctrine and biblical truths applied to the issues of today. Our daughter loves her family group and youth activities. Each of us has found wonderful communion with God's people.”

“I have been a member of Medulla Baptist Church since 1980. I moved a couple of times but have been able to return to MBC. There is just something about the fellowship, the music and the preaching. My children grew up in this church and they have a solid foundation although now its up to them to live it. My family group (Sunday School) class is the best! We pray for each other, laugh, cry and mourn together. We fellowship with each other outside of Sunday. Maybe the men get together or we have a class get together. MBC has met my spiritual and social needs for the past 40 years. Our pastor is doctrinally sound and the music helps me worship and feel the presence of God during our worship services.”
