Love God. Love People. Share Jesus. Make Disciples.
Note from Pastor Chris:
As many of you already know, we are now have stay at home shelter order in place in North Carolina until the end of April. With that order, myself and the deacons have made the decision in accordance with obeying our government to help deter the spread of COVID-19 to cancel all services and gatherings of the church until April 30.
This puts a hamper on our Easter celebration, and we hate to have to do that on such an important holiday as we remember and celebrate the resurrection of Christ. Though we do that every Sunday, but it is a special time to focus on the greatest event in human history: the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, the Son of God. With that in mind, we want to still make a big deal out of Easter, and we will inform you of some plans to do that when we finally are able to meet again plans to encourage that celebration, even if it’s not on the actual Easter weekend.
Again, if you or anyone in the church has a need, please let me or the deacons know. If there is anyone that you know in our community that is or will be struggling with getting things they need or a financial need that we can help with, let us know. We want to be the hands of Jesus, showing hope in these circumstances that is bringing much fear and anxiety.
Thank you church for your prayers and encouragement in these difficult days. I am powered by those prayers daily. It is a privilege and honor to pastor you. I miss seeing all of you and worshiping together on Sundays. Love you all. Keep enduring. God is with us. Rest in Jesus!
In Christ, Pastor Chris
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

3:00 - 7:00 p.m.
Our men's ministry needs projects for our Saturdays of service. If you or someone you know needs some help with yard work, pressure-washing, etc, please call the church office and let us know. We'll call back to confirm if/when we would be able to do the projects. This also applies to people outside of the church, as we would also like this to be an opportunity to serve our community, particularly those that are unchurched. Thank you!
