About Us

Macedonia Baptist Church is a Southern Baptist Church that is located just north of the town of Edenton, NC.

 

Our purpose is to fulfill the Great Commission by making disciples. How we fulfill that purpose is by faithfully worshiping, discipling, and serving Jesus.

 

Ultimately, our desire at MBC is to serve our Lord Jesus Christ by doing all things to the praise of His glory. That means that we strive to recognize that Jesus is the head of His church and we serve to fulfill His will for us as His people.

 

We welcome anyone and everyone to join us here at MBC.

What We Believe

We believe the Bible is the inerrant, inspired, and infallible Word of God. God’s Word is the final authority for faith and life.

We believe there is only one God, and He has chosen to reveal Himself in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

We believe men and women are created in the image of God. The sin of Adam marred that image, creating an eternal divide between God and humanity. Every person is born in sin and in need of forgiveness. We believe God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and repent their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. We believe every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity.

We believe the only way a person can have a true, forgiven relationship with God is through Jesus Christ. Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary and conceived by the Holy Spirit. Jesus became man without ceasing to be God, tempted in every way as we are, yet without sin. Jesus paid the sacrifice for our sins on the cross. He died, was buried, and rose again to life on the third day. Our right standing with God is made sure because of His literal, physical resurrection.

We believe in the literal, physical return of Jesus to judge the living and the dead.

We believe God offers eternal life as a free gift. It must be received by faith alone through God’s grace alone. The life that comes from this gift is a permanent possession of the one receiving it.

We believe the church is a local body of believers on mission to enlarge God’s kingdom. The local church is autonomous, free of any external authority or control.

We believe believer’s baptism and the Lord’s Supper are the two ordinances of the church.
