Welcome to Milledge Avenue Baptist Church!


We're glad that you have found your way to the Milledge Avenue Baptist Church web site!

We are, as our mission statement says, "a worshipping family of God."

All of us yearn for genuine community--a gathering of friends in which we know we are loved and that we belong. We want the confidence that faith provides and assurance that God is with us no matter what happens to us.

We believe that worship keeps Christ at the center of our church's life. That's why Jesus Christ is the focus of our worship, the standard of truth and goodness, the model for our relationships, the source of our unity, and the motivation to reach out to our neighbors and world.

If you're looking for a community of love and belonging and a place where your faith can be nurtured, please let me help you become connected to our church.


Dr. Edward R. Bolen, Senior Pastor 

Sunday evening, June 7th from 5-7 pm, we will have a churchwide picnic at the Barn at C&D Cattle Farm (click HERE to go to the website). The hospitality and fellowship team is providing all the food! (Hot dogs with all the trimmings, chips, ice cold drinks, and ice cream sandwhiches).  All you need to bring is a lawn chair and yourself.  We will have corn hole, horseshoes, music, and lots of fun.  Mark your calendars now and plan to attend this event.  Transportation from the church can also be provided if needed. Call the church office for details.

The Lord's Prayer Sermon Series

We begin our summer worship by turning to St. Matthew’s version of the Lord’s Prayer. The plural “our” is used throughout, reminding us who gave voice to this prayer that we are both in the presence of God and in the presence of a wider praying community.

As we dig into Jesus’ model prayer, I ask that you join me in the pursuit of three goals:

  1. That we gain a deeper sense of what we are asking for in the petitions,
  2. Memorize and use the prayer daily,
  3. Keep a prayer journal throughout June that - individually and corporately - we might grow as a praying congregation.

In Christ,
