Love God. Love People. Share Jesus. Make Disciples.
Who We Are
The Macedonia community is bordered by the Chowan River to the west and the town of Edenton to the south. Macedonia Baptist Church has been worshiping God and serving this community since 1850. We are affiliated with the Chowan Baptist Association, the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina, and the Southern Baptist Convention. You can make connections with each of these on our Links Page.
It is the great desire of MBC that every man, woman, boy, and girl have an opportunity to hear the story of Jesus. We believe that he is hope for the despairing, help for the forsaken, healing for the broken, and salvation for the world.
MBC is in essential agreement with those beliefs common among Southern Baptists. These beliefs are expressed in a document called The Baptist Faith and Message. The latest edition of that document can be found at the following link: Baptist Faith and Message
It’s time for Operation Christmas Child! Due to Covid safety restrictions and keeping our children and leaders safe, we have to do it differently this year! In years past, we have asked for donations from our church family and the children of the church have had an awesome time packing the boxes.
This year, we are issuing a challenge to all of our church family! We have 125 boxes to be packed for children across the world that, in most cases, will receive nothing for Christmas. The children of the church want each individual to pick up at least one box to fill and bring back by November 15th. When picking up shoeboxes, make sure to grab one of each of the documents provided on the table with them which include information on how to pack your shoebox gift with instructions on donating the $9 shipping cost, shoebox gift suggestions for boys or girls of different ages, and the list of prohibited items.
Drop off completed boxes on the designated table in the fellowship hall. Please include your $9 shipping fee with your box. The preferred and easiest way to give shipping cost is online (and in doing so you
can discover the destination of your shoebox gift).
The Operation Christmas Child drive will end Sunday, November 15th. Please do not disappoint these kids! If all 125 are filled, it will be the most we’ve collected! If anyone would like to participate in packing a shoebox but is unable to get out to get a shoebox or items for it, please contact the church office as we have a volunteer who can help.
