Mooroolbark Baptist is a vibrant intergenerational church that has served our local community for over 70 years. As a Christian community of believers and Christ followers, we seek to connect with Jesus, see lives transformed and serve our world.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20 (ESV)
We, as followers of Jesus, are commissioned to go (as we live our lives with intention) and make disciples (lead others to have a relationship with God through Jesus), baptize them (which will happen after a profession in Jesus is made) and teach them (the ways and commands of Jesus). This is the foundation for spiritual growth.
The first step in this strategy is to help God’s people CONNECT to Him through worship. Our desire is to have people CONNECT with the God that created them, designed them, and loves them.
Once people are connected and a relationship is formed with the One True God through Jesus, then we want to help people become TRANSFORMed.
After people CONNECT to the One True God in worship, their lives will start to TRANSFORM to reflect holy and righteousness living, and then exercise the gifts given to them by God as they SERVE through ministry and mission.
