The MARBC, compelled by the Word of God to reflect the glory and grace of Jesus Christ, exists to foster the mutual unity, partnership, and enrichment of our churches.
We are the MARBC, an association of autonomous local congregations with a commitment to stand together for the Faith and thereby impact our world with the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. This commitment requires cooperation among us in the planting, nurturing, and strengthening of local churches.
Theological Heritage – We celebrate and embrace the biblical and doctrinal roots that have given our fellowship stability and vitality.
Fervent Prayer – We confess that we are completely dependent upon our sovereign God and will promote that dependence on him through prayer.
Biblical Unity – We stand together in truth and love, realizing that when churches partner together they can uniquely impact the world for Jesus Christ.
Ecclesiastical Diversity – We recognize the demographic, cultural, and methodological variety that characterizes the churches within our fellowship, and we will graciously respect the autonomy of each congregation.
Church Strengthening Goal
The respective Church Strengthening, Church Nurturing, and Church Planting Committees will develop appropriate plans to meet these goals.
