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.

Requiem for the Living Combined Concert

On Palm Sunday afternoon, April 9, 2017, at 5:00 pm, the choirs of First Baptist Church and Milledge Ave Baptist Church will be combining for a performance of an exciting new work by Dan Forrest titled, “Requiem for the Living”. Here is the review:

A significant new setting of the Requiem by Dan Forrest, scored for mixed choir and orchestra with solos for mezzo-soprano and tenor. Combining both liturgical and non-liturgical texts, this powerful five-movement work projects a wide range of meaningful expression, from a biting essay on the vanity and pain of mankind to a plea for mercy, and finally a celebration of eternal light. A ten piece chamber orchestra accompaniment will be used in this performance. Movements: Introit - Kyrie; Vanitas Vanitatum; Agnus Dei; Sanctus and Lux Aeterna.

A Living Last Supper

Please join us on Maundy Thursday, April 17, at 6:00 p.m., as MABC members present  Transformation: A Living Last Supper, a one act play by Rachel Hoyer.


The drama depicts how Leonardo da Vinci may have gone about painting the Last Supper. Da Vinci said he didn’t intend for the painting to be a faithful reproduction of that Passover meal as it actually took place in first-century Italy. Instead, he portrayed the Last Supper as if it had taken place in fifteenth-century Italy.


In this one act, da Vinci has hired models to portray the twelve disciples. As the drama progresses, the models learn more about the disciples they become. The actors include Mark Sorrow, Trey and Chip Scott, Nathan Byrd, Paul Nelson, Bob Duncan, Tom Rodgers, Tom Eggleston, Phillip and Carson Griffeth, Doug Gatchell, Davin Welter, Chris Taylor, Sherry Lester, and Mitch Wesley, with narration by Edward Bolen and Ginny Dempsey.


This is a Red Door Faith event where the entire community will be invited. Please spread the word to your friends and neighbors. It will be a meaningful and delightful presentation that adults and children will equally enjoy!
