Yes we do! Baptism is not required for salvation but is done as an act of obedience, following what the scriptures teach. We baptize by immersion, which we believe to be the scriptural form of baptism. If you are desiring baptism and would like to take that next step, let us know!

Thanks for checking us out!!

Medulla is a suburb in the southern part of Lakeland. Medulla Baptist Church has been a part of Lakeland since 1885! Perhaps you are wondering how to pronounce the name of our church. It is not pronounced Medoolla (the most common attempt). It is not even pronounced Medulla (as in the “dull” boy). Medulla is pronounced… “Mu-dell-a”: Mu (as in much), dell (as in bell), and a (as in such). “Mu-dell-a”. We don’t know why, but it is what it is! Now that you know how to pronounce our church name, we want you to know that we appreciate you taking the time to visit our website and learn about our church.

Come see us every Sunday at Medulla; we love meeting new people and sharing the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ…

Wonderful pastor and music worship leader.  Great staff and people…
