Mission

People leading People into a life-changing, ever-growing relationship with Jesus Christ.

The words in this short statement carry special importance.

People Leading People • every believer at Mobberly – not just pastors, church staff and leaders – has the responsibility of leading other people. Lead means to influence. It is a word describing initiative and intentionality.

Life-changing • salvation, new creation (2 Cor. 5:17). The horizontal leaf in our logo represents change in all life’s relationships and activities on earth.

Ever-growing • consistent growth-spiritual development. The vertical leaf in our logo represents ongoing growth in our connection to Jesus.

Together they form the cross which reminds us of the gospel and what Jesus did for us that we can come to have a relationship with God. Christianity is best described by a relationship not a religion.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes.
Romans 1:16 (CSB)

Beliefs

WE BELIEVE

We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died as our substitute upon the cross, was resurrected from the dead, and is coming again. (1 Timothy 2:5-6, Philippians 2:5-11)

We believe that the Bible is the authoritative, inerrant, infallible word of God to men. (Romans 15:4, 2 Timothy 3:16)

We believe that all persons are born with a sinful nature and that God’s remedy for man’s ruin is entirely of grace through one’s transfer of trust to Jesus Christ. (Romans 3:23, Ephesians 2:8-9, John 3:16)

We believe that when a person has transferred his trust to Jesus Christ that he is born into God’s family and is forever secure in Jesus Christ. He is called to live a holy life. (Ephesians 4:30, 1 Peter 1:15-16)

We believe that the church is the body of Christ with the mission to preach the Gospel to all the world. We believe that the ordinances of the church are believer’s baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper. (Matthew 28:19-20, 1 Corinthians 11:18-32)

We believe in the personal, visible return of our Lord Jesus, prior to the establishment of His kingdom. Those who are believers shall be forever in the presence of God, and those who have rejected Christ will be forever separated from the presence of God. (1 Thessalonians 3:13, Colossians 3:4)

Mobberly Baptist Church is affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention. A detailed summary of our beliefs are available through the SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION WEBSITE.

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace
Ephesians 1:7 (CSB)
