Here is a brief description of the various areas of church life at Madison Baptist. We try to maintain a family style as we help each other learn of and grow closer to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Prayer is a part of everything we do. We feel that the church should reflect the best practices of any individual Christian, so we pray as often as we meet. We do not memorize liturgies or quote from prayer books often. Instead, we pour out our hearts to God and invite His work in us and through us. We have begun praying for a new Great Awakening in our country. Won’t you join us in asking God to send a great revival that will spread from church to church and community to community!
Our seniors are leaned upon heavily at Madison. Their walk with the Lord, tried through the hardships of life, coupled with knowledge learned through experience as well as revelation make them our most valuable human asset. Our seniors love the Lord and will share with you for your good and His kingdom.
Sunday School is an important part of our church life. Our teachers work hard to present relevant Bible studies to help believers of all ages grow closer to Jesus. We are diligent to keep our classes from becoming "closed-off" or "cliques" while encouraging each class to take advantage of the closer fellowship that these classes provide. Studying the Bible, discipling one another, and outreach to the unchurched are our goals for Sunday School.
We believe in providing support for young people on several levels. First and foremost, we pray for our teens continually, because we know that the pressures of life are intense for them. We also provide regular activities and ways for kids to get together and be kids - all with a focus upon their spiritual lives and relationship to Christ. Lastly, we are committed to providing high-quality role models in the adults they encounter at Madison Baptist. David and Suzi Prince area great additions to our Youth Department and to our church. They are role models and teachers to help out teens navigate through these complicated times.
For us, music is a means to an end, or a vehicle to help us get to a destination... we want to arrive at a place of worship, a place where we think about and express our love for God. Our goal in our music is to help clear the path, spiritually speaking, to that place of worship. We worship when we “sing the wondrous story of the Christ who died for me."
We care about our community. We show our love for South Jackson in several ways by supporting local aid organizations to outreach ministries. We try to prove our love for our community through service. We feel that this is the example that Christ has left for us to follow.
Hold on to the pattern of sound teaching that you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. Guard, through the Holy Spirit who lives in us, that good thing entrusted to you. 2 Tim 1:13-14 (HCSB)
