We offer JESUS CHRIST, Christian Fellowship, and Bible Teaching.
Maple Grove Baptist Church uses the King James Version of the Bible, believing that this version was taken from the original Textus Receptus (Received Text) manuscripts.
We are an INDEPENDENT Baptist Church. By independent, we mean that we are a self-governing body and are not under any other authority, convention or group. The Bible is our rule of faith and practice.
We are FUNDAMENTAL in doctrine. This means that we accept the truths of the Bible as opposed to modernism, which denies the fundamentals of the faith. We believe in the verbal inspiration of the Scriptures, the Genesis account of Creation, the virgin birth of Christ, His sinless life, His blood atonement, His glorious resurrection and His Second Coming to receive His saints up into Heaven.
Further, we believe that salvation is by grace with no works of any kind. All men are born in sin and must be saved before their death or the coming of Jesus Christ.
Our church is Pre-Tribulation and Pre-Millennial in doctrine; meaning that Jesus Christ is coming back for His Saints before the Tribulation Period and that no born again Believer shall go through any part of this period. At the end of the seven years of Tribulation, the Lord will return with His Saints and utterly defeat the armies of the Antichrist. Satan will be bound and cast into the bottomless pit, and then the Lord will establish His Kingdom on earth and reign for a thousand years (Revelation chapters 19-21.)
The Primary Goal of MGBC is teach and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to win the lost to salvation through Him. Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation.
(John 14:6 KJV) “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
(Acts 4:12 KJV) “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
We teach that a person is saved only by the grace of God and not of his own good works.
(Ephesians 2:8-9 KJV) “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast.”
(John 1:12 KJV) “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”
(Romans 10:13 KJV) “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
(Romans 11:6 KJV) “And if by grace, then is it no more works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.”
