    Marshall Road Baptist Church

    We exist “to help people take their next steps with God”

    The Pathway to Honor God is by making Disciples who:


    We long for every person to have a connection with God through Jesus Christ and a vital connection with other believers through the local church. Jesus wants every person to have a personal relationship with Him by trusting in His death and resurrection as His finished work in reconciling us back to God. This relationship makes all believers a family; therefore, we can have a spiritual connection with each other.


    A relationship with Jesus is marked by spiritual growth. This growth is not measured by knowledge alone, but by the believer becoming like Christ in character. It is God’s desire that we see like Jesus, think like Jesus, act, and react like Jesus in every circumstance. The goal of the believer is to have the mind of Christ and this work is only completed by God through the power of the Holy Spirit.


    The Bible says, “whatever your hand finds to do, do it for the glory of God.” God wants us to use our hands to serve Him by serving others. We believe that every member is a minister and every task is important. A life built by God is a life intentionally engaged in ministry.


    God expects those of us who are believers to live on mission for Him. We are called to introduce others to Jesus Christ. A life built by God is a life that seeks to share the love of God with people wherever they go. God wants us to build authentic relationships with people in order to have the opportunity to share with them the love and grace of God. Loving people and sharing the love of Jesus is also done through acts of rescue and compassion…doing the good that needs doing…loving the ones who need loving.

    These four commitments lead to a life of:


    A life build by God is a life of devotion. It is about worship. Worship is more than singing or attending a church service. It is a life that is transformed by the love of God where everything is an act of devotion and all we are and all we have is not “mine” but “His.” Life is then measured by an intentional commitment in connecting, growing, serving, and sharing to be focused on Jesus in all that we do.
