What to Expect
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 a 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.

Sincerely,
Dr. Edward R. Bolen, Senior Pastor 

FAQ's

WHAT TIME IS THE WORSHIP SERVICE?

We begin at 11am, just after Sunday School.

WHEN IS SUNDAY SCHOOL AND WHO IS IT FOR?

Sunday School begins at 10am. We offer several opportunities for adults and those classes are located in the Education Bldg. Our college students enjoy their own class in the conference room (on the lower floor). Children K-5th grades can be dropped off at 9:45am on the 2nd floor of the Kinney Bldg (just upstairs from the nursery) and our youth, grades 6-12, meet in the youth room just off of the Fellowship Hall. Our nursery is open during this time with curriculum for children 2-4 years old.

HOW LONG DOES THE WORSHIP LAST?

About one hour. We have a time of fellowship afterward with coffee and conversation.

HOW DO I GET THERE?

We are located at 1690 S. Milledge Avenue. Parking is located toward the back of our facilities just off Marian Drive.

DO YOU HAVE A NURSERY FOR YOUNG CHILDREN?

Our nursery is staffed with trained professionals and available for children four and younger. It is located just off of the sanctuary. Parents are provided with a pager in case they are needed.

IS CHILDREN'S CHURCH OFFERED?

Yes! Children will begin worship with their parents until after the children's sermon. At this time, they will be dismissed and taken to our Children's Worship Room. Parents can pick their child up after worship.

DO YOU ASK VISITORS TO STAND UP?

Not at all. We do hope you will introduce yourself before or after the worship service and you'll have the opportunity to fill out a guest information card letting us know you were there.

IS THE SANCTUARY ACCESSIBLE?

Yes. We have several handicap parking spaces available. Once inside, you'll find several restrooms marked handicap accessible or handicap friendly. We just recently completed renovations to our chancel to make it handicap accessible.

WILL MABC WELCOME ME?

We welcome everyone, without exception.

  • Baptism by immersion is Christ’s example, but like the early Church, we recognize baptism by sprinkling and pouring.
  • Men and women are called by God equally for special Christian service.
