Our Vision & Mission
Our Vision is to see a multitude of all peoples from Buckingham and beyond come to know, love and serve Jesus Christ for the glory of God.
Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of Maysville Baptist Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Maysville Baptist members are involved in a variety of ministries from Upward Sports to Vacation Bible School.
Additionally, Maysville Baptist is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in sending missionaries and supporting these missionaries with our finances and prayers. Yearly we send teams of volunteers from our church to other countries to assist missionaries in practical projects and evangelistic outreach. We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means we live and minister in our own community or move to a foreign country.
How to Serve and Grow!
Maysville Baptist Church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at Maysville.
Maysville offers various times of interaction throughout the year for both women in the church and in our community. These vary from times of fellowship through crafts and an annual Christmas Ornament Exchange held the first Tuesday of December. These groups provide a refreshing time of spiritual interaction for the women in the church.
Children’s Sunday School
Maysville believes in pouring into and developing our children. Our facility is inviting and provides a stimulating and safe environment for children to learn and develop. Each Sunday morning, children get to participate in their own classes as the Bible lessons are taught in such a way that every child gets to participate and learn.
We have classes for:
NURSERY birth-2 years
In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, Maysville Baptist periodically holds a children’s church service in conjunction with the main service. This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children’s church volunteers have an endless stream of creativity–ranging from puppet shows, to games, to object lessons.
God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Our worship team volunteers are an important part of the ministry of Maysville Baptist Church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.
The usher team at Maysville Baptist Church fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, unlocking doors, locking doors, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of individuals whose ministry is integral to church life.
Welcome to Maysville Baptist Church!
Our greatest desire is for you to have a relationship with God and live the abundant life He has for you.
God is all-powerful, Creator of all things, all-knowing, holy, just, loving and gracious. He created you and He loves you. God has a purpose and plan for your life and He desires to give you an abundant life. Although God doesn’t offer us a life free of problems, He offers us a life filled with peace and purpose in the midst of life’s hardships and troubles.
:We have all broken God’s perfect standard and therefore we have sinned against Him.
Romans 3:23 – “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
Our punishment is eternal death in hell. We will forever be separated from God.
Romans 6:23 – “For the wages of sin is death.”
God so loved the world that He gave His only Son. Jesus came to the earth and died on a cross for our sin. He took our punishment of death on Himself. Jesus died and three days later rose from the grave and defeated sin and death. Jesus lives and offers you forgiveness of sin and eternal life.
John 3:16 – “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.”
Through Jesus, God offers you forgiveness of sin and eternal life. If you believe in Jesus and what He did for you on the cross and confess Him as Lord of your life you will be saved.
Romans 5:8 – “But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Romans 10:9-10 – “Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.”
God is always waiting for you. Pray to Him and acknowledge your sin and ask His forgiveness. Tell Him that you believe that Jesus died on the cross and rose from the grave so that you might be forgiven of your sin. Repent and turn from your old life and turn to God. Confess that Jesus is Lord of your life. If you do this, God’s Word says that you will be forgiven of all your sin and you will have eternal life in heaven with Him.
