FIRST TIME VISITORS
Welcome to the Mission Boulevard Baptist Church website!
We are so glad that you are visiting us on the internet. We hope to visit with you at our church location as well or in one of our Bible study groups in town.
We have a relaxed, friendly environment. We’re like family, so you won’t experience that awkward institutional and commercialized feeling.
You will see our members smiling and talking to each other before, after, and in between service times. We sing congregational hymns, listen to music provided by members who organize quartets, duets, and small groups. Sometimes we have solos.
We pray, preach, and present seminars. Missionaries come and share their calling and burden with us too. Sometimes we show informative videos, and sometimes we have a puppet show.
First Time to MBBC?
When you arrive Sunday morning, you can park in our large front parking lot. And when you walk through the front door, you can expect to be greeted by one of our friendly deacons. He’ll give you a church bulletin and ask you to sign our guest book.
Our children join us in the first hour of worship Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. Then we take a break so the children can go to children’s church in the back building. They sing, play Bible games, listen to Bible stories, and have a great time together led by loving teachers.
Sunday evenings at 6:00 p.m., we gather in study groups at the church to study the Bible. We always have a Bible survey lesson being taught, a discipleship training class, and a family/marriage class. Sometimes we have other topics being taught for a month or two. At about 6:30 p.m., we go to ministry teams to discuss the lesson just heard or to discuss activities of ministry coming up. Ministry teams are small groups where members and visitors can interact and make our church ministry more personal. Then, at about 7:15 p.m., we gather in the assembly building for church service to sing and to hear God’s Word preached.
Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m., we meet in ministry teams for prayer. Prayer needs are discussed and missionary letters are read and prayed over. This important time broadens our mission perspective and burden. Then, at about 7:15 p.m., we gather in the assembly building for church service.
We are more than a Sunday and Wednesday church. Members meet throughout the week in small groups to study a book of the Bible or a topic of interest from Revelation and end time events to discipleship or family topics or the book of Romans. We also have a recovery ministry that meets every Friday evening called RU, which is a branch of the Reformers Unanimous ministry. There is also a women’s study and a men’s study.
If you are a teenager, come and join our youth group, make friends, and grow spiritually.
College students have a campus ministry team to make friends and be encouraged in the Lord.
Young couples are welcome to be a part of the couples ministry and enjoy the fellowship, teaching, and support that is offered.
There are many ministry opportunities at Mission Blvd. Baptist Church to take advantage of, either as a recipient or as a laborer. We are always praying and asking God to add new laboring members to our church. Come and visit us. Find friends and meet others who desire to follow Jesus Christ.

Every member in the church is welcomed with a church-wide greeting after you join. You will receive a new member orientation book and then helped to choose a ministry team.
The Bible says that the Lord adds to His church as it pleases Him. This means that you ask Him if MBBC is your church home. Then talk to one of our pastors to receive more instruction.
This is a church with a Baptist lineage that follows the example of the early church described in the book of Acts. It is independent in that it seeks to follow Christ, rather than feel obligated to follow the rules of associations and conventions. This allows us as a local assembly of believers to fellowship and minister with others freely as God leads us.
