"In response to the call of God, the mission of Melrose Baptist church is to lead people into a redemptive relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We will fulfill this calling by the power of the Holy Spirit through worship, fellowship, discipleship and missions in the community and the world."
We strive to be just that, a church without walls. Jesus calls for us to go outside the walls to reach the lost and the broken. It is there that the lost will be found. Most churches find it is comfortable to stay within the walls and for the most part that is true. We hope to have you join us.
We highly value our relationships with one another. We look to grow through fellowship, and ultimately growing closer to God. This idea would not be possible without grace. We look to extend grace to all of the lost and broken. We have all sinned, and will continue to sin. We must love the sinner, not cast them out.
