There is one and only one living and true God. Read how God has changed our members’ lives.
God the Father
God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace. God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ.
God the Son
Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ, He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He honored the divine law by His personal obedience, and in His substitutionary death on the cross, He made provision for the redemption of men from sin.
God the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, fully divine. He exalts Christ. He convicts men of sin, of righteousness and of judgment. He enlightens and empowers the believer and the church in worship, evangelism, and service.
Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification.
God’s Purpose of Grace
Election is the gracious purpose of God, according to which He regenerates, justifies, sanctifies, and glorifies sinners. All true believers endure to the end. Those whom God has accepted in Christ, and sanctified by His Spirit will never fall away from the state of grace, but shall persevere to the end.
The Christian & the Social Order
All Christians are under obligation to seek to make the will of Christ supreme in our own lives and in human society. In the spirit of Christ, Christians should oppose racism, every form of greed, selfishness, and vice, and all forms of sexual immorality, including adultery, homosexuality, and pornography. We should work to provide for the orphaned, the needy, the abused, the aged, the helpless, and the sick. We should speak on behalf of the unborn and contend for the sanctity of all human life from conception to natural death.
Church and state should be separate. The state owes to every church protection and full freedom in the pursuit of its spiritual ends. A free church in a free state is the Christian ideal.
God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. It is composed of persons related to one another by marriage, blood or adoption. We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male and female. These two distinct, complementary sexes together reflect the image and nature of God (Genesis 1:26-27). Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person.
Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime. The husband and wife are of equal worth before God, since both are created in God’s image. A husband is to love his wife as Christ loved the church. He has the God-given responsibility to provide for, to protect, and to lead his family. A wife is to submit herself graciously to the servant leadership of her husband even as the church willingly submits to the headship of Christ. She, being in the image of God as is her husband and thus equal to him, has the God-given responsibility to respect her husband and to serve as his helper in managing the household and nurturing the next generation. Children, from the moment of conception, are a blessing and heritage from the Lord. Parents are to demonstrate to their children God’s pattern for marriage.

I have fallen short
When I was seven years old, I faithfully attended Olive Baptist Church in Lesage, WV, with my grandfather. On Wednesday nights, even though I was in the second grade, we were allowed to join the older kids (3-6 grade) in their overall lesson during the AWANA clubs. My grandfather was teaching about Jesus that night, and I felt Jesus calling me. That night, I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior in December of 1994. Shortly after [my grandfather’s ] passing, I fell out of church for a few years. Then, I attended church with my brother while going to high school. After graduating high school, I again fell out of church for two years. Then, I attended Spring Valley Freedom Baptist Church, where I served faithfully for four years.
I have fallen short many times during these times, but my Heavenly Father has been there for me in the ups and the down. In January of 2011, my wife, my girlfriend at the time, found out we were pregnant with our first child. I knew that I wasn’t living for the Lord as I should have due to many unfortunate circumstances at my parents’ house, causing me to move out and live by myself and not live as I should. We decided to make it right by getting married, but we did love each other, so that wasn’t the only reason for us getting married. It took a few years after getting married, moving from West Virginia to Georgia, and getting situated for over a year to finally go to this great church that keeps sending us information about their church in the mail. This church was Macland Baptist Church. This is the church that I currently serve.
Two kids later, becoming a deacon and now dedicating my life to the call of ministry, I am now making up for past mistakes by forgetting about my sinful past and living for my God. Glory to God in the highest! I pray today that if you haven’t accepted Him as Lord, today would be the day! I don’t have to worry about life events because I know God will always be in control, and I can lean on him (Matthew 11:28). If you need peace, the Lord is there! If you feel lonely, God is there (Deuteronomy 31:6-8)! God is there when you feel down or burdened by a situation (James 1:2-3)! Trust in Him today!
