The people at MBC are on a mission.
Our mission is inviting people to know and follow Christ... "...by designing settings in which people are encouraged and equipped to grow in their relationships with God, other believers, and those who have not yet believed."
We fervently believe that MBC has a priority from God to exalt Jesus Christ as Lord through edification and evangelism. Therefore, we view our purpose as a body of believers to be focused on encouraging and equipping our people to exalt Christ by growing in grace and by effectively sharing Him with unbelieving family, friends, neighbors, and associates, both in Columbus and around the world.
YOU are Invited
We would like to introduce you to the ministry of MBC. Our church is where young and old find a special place to call home. Whether you are a believer searching for a church home or just beginning to consider the claims of Christ, we think that you will find Memorial a help and encouragement to you.
To Know Christ
It is our passionate desire that every person who walks through the doors of Memorial would become a committed believer in Jesus Christ. The Bible teaches that the church is a fellowship of believers in Christ who believe the message about sin and salvation and who have trusted completely the Lord Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of their sins. It is only in knowing and following Christ that we find real purpose and direction for life.
The Word of God is the only reliable compass by which we can chart our life's direction. It is our purpose to invite people to know and follow Christ through the faithful teaching and practical exposition of God's Word. We want to exalt Jesus Christ in such a way that people come to know Him, and grow in commitment to His service.
To Follow Christ
If you know Jesus Christ as your Savior, we want to encourage you to obey the Scriptures and prayerfully consider becoming a part of our fellowship where many opportunities for service are available. The particular area of service that God calls us to is likely to be determined, at least in part, by the needs of our body and by the gifts He has given. Understanding what it means to know and follow Christ compels us to offer ourselves in service to our Savior. We invite you to come and grow with us.
With your family… Because of the great complexity and high demands of today's families, we desire to help you in the process of knowing and applying God's word to the sometimes complicated task of marriage and family. Knowing and following Christ gives us hope for the family.
Fellowship with believers… No matter where you find yourself in life - from high school graduation to retirement or somewhere in between - Memorial has a place for you to grow in faith and friendship. SMALL GROUPS are a way for you to be involved with others and grow in the faith. These small groups meet at various times and locations throughout the southwest side of Columbus. Knowing and following Christ draws us to fellowship with other believers.
