We believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ.

MCBC is a church that gathers around the person and the teachings of Jesus because we believe there is no problem in human life that apprenticeship to Jesus cannot address. And it is our desire to see the power of Jesus unleashed in peoples’ lives.

What is the gospel?

The word gospel simply means “good news” and the good news is this: that Jesus came to earth to show us what God is like, to preach the kingdom of God and instil those kingdom values in the lives of his followers. He came to offer up his life as forgiveness for our sins, to conquer death and restore our relationship with God.

Maybe that sounds like a weighty theological answer, but it’s important that we get it right because it is the foundation for everything we are and everything we do.

The gospel...
  • was purchased for us through the death, burial and resurrection of Christ.
  • is received through our faith in Jesus as Lord and Saviour.
  • can be captured in Jesus' favourite phrase: the Kingdom of God is here! Through Jesus —and only Jesus— the Kingdom of Heaven has come down to earth. 

A new community of his followers has been started. A new way of life is now possible in the presence of God; it stretches into eternity, but it starts now.

The Kingdom of God is available now, through Jesus. It is available to anyone who wants it as a free gift of grace.

Do you have questions about life and faith and spirituality? We believe that Jesus is the best place to look for answers.

In a time when I was looking for peace in my life, a friend brought me to learn about Jesus. As I learned more, for the first time in my life all the busyness and financial worry started to wash away. The love I felt in committing to a path in him gave me new meaning. I started to finally live in the calmness of His word.

Mike Hilario

I follow Jesus because He is my only hope for what my life means. Life was hard before I knew Jesus. I began to question why I even had a life until I learned about Jesus, the son of God, who died for all of us. That's how much He loves us!

Short Term Ministries in the Philippines

In 2018, MCBC participated in a SENT experience with Canadian Baptist Ministries. A team of nine members from our church partnered with Filipino Baptists in Capiz province, Philippines. During this two-week experience, we had the privilege of forming deeper relationships with believers in the Philippines by learning, worshipping and serving with them. This partnership now continues as we share an ongoing relationship and support the ongoing ministry of four daycare centres in rural communities. This STEP (Serving, Training, Energizing Partnership) relationship offers vital support to our ministry of global mission.

MCBC Refugee Settlement

At MCBC we strive to follow God’s command from Leviticus 19:33-34, “When immigrants live in your land with you, you must not cheat them. Any immigrant who lives with you must be treated as if they were one of your citizens. You must love them as yourself, because you were immigrants in the land of Egypt; I am the Lord your God.”

We seek to support those who are oppressed and mistreated around the world by assisting in refugee settlement. This work begins by identifying candidates, assisting in the refugee application process, and helping them to establish their lives here when they arrive in Canada.

Baptism

Baptism is a joyful celebration in the life of a believer and a compelling indication of the power of Jesus’ death and resurrection. Baptism is a public declaration that you are a follower of Jesus, that you belong to him, and that you are part of his gathered people, the church.

Why baptism?
  • Baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Jesus.
  • Baptism is one of the important ways we follow the example of Jesus in our own lives.
  • Baptism by immersion is a symbol of the death and resurrection of Jesus, a reminder of the transformation in your own life, and a proclamation to the community.

A decision to follow Christ is the beginning of the greatest adventure this world has to offer. We look forward to celebrating that decision with you. For more information, contact the church office about joining one of our baptism classes!

Baptism services are held regularly throughout the year.

Church Membership

Church membership is a part of God’s design for our lives. One of the beautiful metaphors for the church is the image of the body; the church is the body of Jesus.

...So we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. (Romans 12:5)
Because there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for we all partake of the one bread. (1 Corinthians 10:17)
Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it. (1 Corinthians 12:27)

All those who have committed their lives to Jesus as their Saviour, and celebrated that decision in baptism, are invited to take their place in the body of Christ—the church. Membership is an act of obedience, of servanthood and of joyful celebration.

If you are new to the church, we hope you are enjoying your time with us. We encourage you to take advantage of all the opportunities you find to learn and grow with us. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. If there is a way we can further encourage, you please don’t hesitate to ask.

If you have been with us for some time and are looking for that next step in your spiritual life, we encourage you to consider church membership. To learn more about the commitment, contact the church office about membership classes!

Membership classes are offered several times throughout the year.
