We have a place for everyone to grow closer to God through the study of His Word, fellowship with believers, and minister to others.
MRBC exists to glorify God in the growth of the Gospel by changing everyday people into a community of passionate Christ-followers.
The Bible says that God’s love for us is not mainly his making much of us, but his giving us the ability to enjoy making much of him forever (John 17:1-4). In other words, God’s love for us keeps God at the center. God’s love for us exalts His value and our satisfaction in it. If God’s love made us central and focused on our value, it would distract us from what is most precious, namely, Himself. Love labors and suffers to enthrall us with what is infinitely and eternally satisfying: God. Therefore God’s love labors and suffers to break our bondage to the idol of self and focus our affections on the treasure of God.
Our desire is for you to enjoy the vast, ocean-deep pleasures of God more than the mud-puddle pleasures of wealth, power or lust. Psalm 16:11 says, “You show me the path of life; in Your presence there is fullness of joy, in Your right hand are pleasures for evermore.” Since God is the source of our greatest delight then God is our most precious treasure; which makes us radically God-centered and not self-centered. And if we treasure God most, we glorify Him most.
