About Madison Avenue Baptist Church
We welcome you to worship with us at Madison Avenue Baptist Church. We are a small, but loving congregation. We believe that three things are most important for us as a church. We believe we must have a Passion for Christ, a Compassion for People, and that we are to be ON Mission to the World. We love the Lord and the Bible, and preach Him each Sunday. We read scriptures and sing cherished songs of the faith. Our worship style is traditional usually accompanied by piano and organ. We often use other instruments when they are available.

The “Madison Spirit”
The “Madison Spirit” is an attitude and mind-set that we of the Madison Avenue fellowship aspire to each day. It is how we want to live our Christian faith. It is a desire to serve God in a genuine and prayerful manner. The three phases of our church motto describe what we are and want to become. As a church and as individuals we want to have…
Passion for Christ
A love for Jesus that expresses itself in prayer, worship, Bible study, ministry and service. It is a burning desire to know Him and make Him known.
Compassion for People
We desire to love individuals as Jesus loves them. We desire that they know Him as their Savior and that they experience His love and peace in their lives. We will seek to aid people in physical and personal ways to the extent of our abilities and resources.
On Mission to the World
Our Great Commission is to make disciples of all people, teaching them to observe everything the Lord has commanded us. We are to be active in sharing our faith, preaching the Gospel, and helping others to do the same. This is a goal we have that starts in our homes, our blocks, our community, our state and our nation. Our goal is active outreach to the world in the name of Jesus.
Our Partner Congregations
We at Madison believe that God has given us our buildings for His use. We desire to be good stewards of what He has given us. We do that by sharing our facilities with three other congregations.
