Mission

The mission of Metropolitan Baptist Tabernacle is to go beyond the walls of Metropolitan to evangelize our local community and the world at-large (Matthew 28:19), make disciples, baptize and teach them the ways of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (Matthew 4:19, 28:19-20). Our primary goal is to love (1 Corinthians 13:1-13), love God (Mark 12:29-30), love one another (John 13:34-35, John 15:12), and love all human beings as ourselves (Mk. 12:31). We challenge one another to love and demonstrate our love by good deeds (Hebrews 10:24). We come together often for worship (Acts 2:46, Hebrews 10:25), fellowship (Acts 20:7), to encourage one another (Hebrews 10:24-25), to assist persons in determining their gifts and utilizing them for Kingdom building (Romans 12:6-8, Ephesians 4:11-13).

 

Our intent is to be doers of the Word, not merely hearers of the Word (James 1:22). We further strive to imitate the life and teachings of Jesus Christ by proclaiming the Good News (Mark 16:15), helping the poor, the oppressed, the captive, and the blind (Luke 4:16-19); feeding the hungry and thirsty, clothing the naked, caring for the sick, visiting those in prison, and welcoming the stranger (Matthew 25:31-46).
