Real Love

Thoughts from My Blog…   

I love asking questions; recently I asked this question online: What is the perfect Valentine gift? I was somewhat surprised at the responses both online and in person. Most folks did not mention the usual gifts- very little talk of cards, flowers, candy, jewelry, etc. Instead, it was a gift selected to match the person, or dinner out or some time together. In our overly commercialized world, we can understand retailers pushing romantic trinkets our way but when it comes to love, the best gift we can give is ourselves. We sometimes fall prey to the thinking that we can substitute “things” for time. We must spend time adding value to others and nurturing relationships.

So on this Valentine’s Day, which is devoted to love, it would be a good time to devote some time and personal attention to those we are to love. So even if you have a box of candy ready or a nicely wrapped present to be delivered, don’t forget to deliver yourself. After all, when God wanted to display His love to us He didn’t send a card, He sent His son.

Membership Matters

Membership Matters

Membership Matters

Why Does Membership matter?

Membership to a local church is joining a spiritual family that you are committed to and the family of God is committed to provide you with an encouragement and support.  A member is held to a point of responsibility, service, and sacrifice.  Our ministry team agrees to assist our family with care, counsel, prayer, and biblical teaching.  Our hope is that you will commit to be a member and making Mt. Calvary Baptist Church your home.

 

Three Main Reasons to Be a Member…

It is Scriptural

Christ is committed to the church. “… just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her.” (Eph. 5:25)

It Goes Against Culture

It is countercultural because we live in an age when people resist being committed to anything.  Being a partner with us for the Gospel of Christ is an unselfish decision that goes against the norm of society.

It is Healthy

It produces spiritual growth. The Word of God gives attention for the need of followers of Jesus to be accountable to each other for spiritual growth.  You cannot be accountable when you’re not committed to the local family of God.

How Do I Become a Member?

We would love for you to take the next step by joining our family at Mt. Calvary Baptist Church! There are three simple requirements to become a member.

  1. Trust in Jesus Christ by faith for your salvation
  2. Be baptized by immersion.
  3. Attend Membership Matters 

Join us for the next Membership Matters! During this course you will learn more from the Pastors and staff about our purpose and discover the importance of connecting with other followers of Jesus.  Go here to register online for our next session of Membership Matters!
