Madison Baptist Church Jackson TN South Jackson Southern Baptist Traditional Southern Baptist worship with us at welcome service community gospel outreach ministry
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.
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.
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)
"The whole being of any Christian is Faith and Love... Faith brings the man to God, Love brings Him to men." — Martin Luther
Madison Baptist Church
has two basic purposes:
First, it was established for the purpose of glorifying the Lord Jesus Christ. We try to follow the Scripture that states, "Whatever you do, do everything for God’s glory."
(1 Corinthians 10:31).
Secondly, the purpose is to meet the spiritual needs of individuals in the context of a Christian environment. The various programs of the church emphasize worship, missions, evangelism, music, Christian education and training, ministry, social activities, and more. These programs are available for your participation in our church.
I invite you to get plugged in and find your place of growth and service here at Madison Baptist Church. If I can help you in any way, do not hesitate to call or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Respectfully yours and happily His,
We believe that to KNOW, without a doubt, that you are saved is possible and practical.
After all, our salvation is not about what we are or what we have done or not done... salvation is all about Jesus, who He is and what He did for you in His death and resurrection.
The Bible tells us that we must:
ADMIT TO GOD THAT YOU ARE A SINNER AND THAT YOU ARE TURNING FROM YOUR SINS
see Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23
BELIEVE IN JESUS BY THANKING HIM FOR DYING ON THE CROSS AND RISING FROM THE DEAD FOR YOUR SINS
see Romans 5:8
CONFESS HIM AS LORD BY ASKING HIM TO COME INTO YOUR LIFE AND BE YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR.
see Romans 10:9-10, Romans 10:13
Accepting the truth about Jesus and confessing Him as Lord is not the end... getting to know God through the study of His Holy Word...following Christ in Baptism... fellowship with other believers... These things work together to help us become more like Jesus!
23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23
23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23
8 But God proves His own love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us! Romans 5:8
9 if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 With the heart one believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth one confesses, resulting in salvation.
13 For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Romans 10:13
