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.

MABC Foundation Grant Applications

This year marks the thirteenth year that the MABC Foundation has invited our congregation to submit grant proposals.

Requests for funding are being accepted now through September 12, 2016. The Foundation Committee encourages any church committee, group, or individual to submit a proposal that addresses the needs of the church, expands the church’s inreach/outreach, or strengthens the church in some way. Alternatively, if you are aware of a non-profit organization that could benefit from a MABC Foundation gift, please bring this opportunity to their attention. Non-profit organizations in the community may submit a proposal if their goal fits the mission of MABC—to be “a worshipping family of God, living and sharing Christ’s love, with each other, our community and our world.” Please note that all proposals must be sponsored by a MABC member and the application form must be signed by both the organizational/group contact and the MABC sponsor. In addition, both a representative from the organization/group and the MABC sponsor must attend the application interview.

Any and all submissions will be individually and prayerfully considered. The 2016 schedule for awarding Foundation funds is as follows:
September 12                Application Deadline (5pm)
September 19 / 20        Application Interviews
October 1                      Announcement of Awards

The 2016 Foundation Committee members are: Will Marlow, Sherry Lester, David Dodson, David Lock, Tommie Mullis, Edward Bolen, Louise Hill, Becky Odom, Remi Ojo, Wanda Culpepper, Dan Akin, and John Culpepper.

All applications MUST be received in the MABC Church office by the close of business on September 12, 2016. We look forward to your proposals and ask that you pray for us in our deliberations as we seek Christ’s will for our church. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
