The mission of Maywood Baptist Church is to make disciples by being about the work of moving people from being dead in sin to being alive in Christ; to encourage and lead people to love the Lord God with all their hearts, souls, minds, and strengths.
We endeavor to provide training, teaching, and experience in the areas of private and corporate worship, fellowship with God and others, ministry to God and others, effectively communicating the gospel to others, and training others to reproduce other disciples; all within the calling and giftedness God grants each disciple.
Maywood Baptist Church is a family of believers who holds dear the following beliefs:
God — We believe that there is one God who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Jesus — We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, was wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, died in our place as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, arose bodily from the grave, and ascended into Heaven.
Holy Spirit — We believe that God the Holy Spirit is active in convincing unbelievers of their need for salvation, and is the Comforter and Guide Who lives in every believer.
Bible — We believe that the Bible is the Word of God without any error, the sole authority for life and faith.
Man — We believe that man is a special creation of God, made in His image, but that through the sin of the first man, Adam, mankind fell so that all men are sinners and need salvation.
Salvation — We believe that salvation is a gift received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Assurance — We believe that every person who is truly saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Eternity — We believe that those persons who die in their sins without Christ spend eternity in Hell and those persons who die with their sins forgiven through Christ spend eternity in Heaven.
Baptism — We believe that water baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Christ and is by immersion after salvation.
Church — We believe that the church is a local body of believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head.
Prayer — We believe that each believer has direct access to God through the Lord Jesus Christ.
