Our purpose is to celebrate and worship God, introduce people to Jesus, and nurture believers to fully follow Jesus Christ.
We believe the Bible is God’s Word to man, divinely inspired, without error and a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It is the means provided to mankind by God to help us know about God, His salvation, and how we are to live in relationship to Him and our fellow man.
We believe that there is one God who is the creator and sustainer of all and that he reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that mankind was created by God and that Adam and Eve are the physical parents of all mankind. We believe that Adam and Eve sinned against God and from that point all men are sinners by nature and in need of a savior.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the only means for forgiveness and salvation of man. We believe that he was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on a cross for our sins, rose again on the third day, ascended to the Father, and will return again one day.
We believe the church was established by Christ to be a blessing to the world as it shares the Good News of Salvation through Christ, Worships God together, equips its members for ministry, teaches God’s word, holds one another accountable, and works to minister to others. It is the body of all believers everywhere who work together, give of their resources, and serve God’s purposes. McDonough Road Baptist Church is a local body of believers who work together to carry out those purposes.
Because Christ is our Savior; our worship revolves around honoring God through Christ. We believe you can't truly worship God without knowing Him and the only way to truly know Him, according to the Bible, is through faith in Jesus Christ.
We expect those in leadership positions to lead the way Christ led.
Biblical Teaching and Preaching
The Bible is our textbook. All of our preaching and teaching should reflect the message of the Bible.
Prayer must come from the heart of the believer and is first and foremost in seeking God's will.
The Worth of Every Person
Everyone matters to God, therefore everyone should matter to us.
Everything we have is a gift from God. Our time, talents and possessions are on loan from God. We should make the most of them, by serving Him.
Christ's church should be a church unified around His purpose. When God's people are truly within His will, the church is unified.
The church has a model for ethics. The model is Jesus Christ.
