Our Vision

Macedonia Baptist Church of Baltimore City is a Christ Centered Church that seeks to Exalt the Savior (Mark 12:30), Equip the Saint (Ephesians 4:11-12), Evangelize the Sinner (Matthew 28:19-20) and Empower the Society (Matthew 25:35-39).

Our Motto
“The Place of Transformation”

At Macedonia it is our prayer that members and visitors experience the Transformational Power of God during our worship service that as they go they are transformed inwardly. 

John 4 serves as the impetus for our theological understanding of how The Place of Transformation is structured. According to John 4, The Place of Transformation, is called to:

• Create a Climate of Compassion
• Critique the Current Culture
• Continue to Convert other to Christ

Our Logo

The shield is a symbolism of Macedonia’s core tenants: the dove is a portrait of the Holy Spirit (Luke 3:22), the Bible is the infallible word of God (II Timothy 3:16), the Crown is given unto the believer in the world to come (II Timothy 4:8), Prayer is our communication channel to the divine (Matthew 6:5-12) and the Cross is a picture of suffering and death that we will bare as we follow Christ (I Peter 4:12-13).

Church Covenant

Having being led, as we believe, by the Spirit of God to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior; and, on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, we do now, in the presence of God, angels and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another, as one body in Christ (John 1:11-12; Matthew 28:19-20).

We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love; to strive for the advancement of this Church, in knowledge, holiness, and comfort; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the Church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the gospel through all nations.

We also engage to maintain family and secret devotion; to religiously educate our children; to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; to walk circumspectly in the world; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in our deportment; to avoid all tattling, backbiting, and to be zealous in our efforts to advance the kingdom of our Savior.

We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love; to remember each other in prayer; to aid each other in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy I feeling and courtesy in speech; to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation, and mindful of the rules of our Savior, to secure it without delay.

We moreover engage that when we remove from this place, we will as soon as possible unite with some other Church, where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word.

The Baptist Ordinances

There are two ordinances to which the Baptist Church adheres. These two ordinances are Baptism and The Lord's Supper. Ordinances, as used here, mean traditions and acts commanded by Jesus that His followers share as a sign of their commitment to Him.
Baptism comes from the Greek work "baptzo" meaning to dip or submerge. Baptists follow the tradition of Jesus having been baptized by John the Baptist. Likewise, we follow the commandment of Jesus who said, "Go, ye therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son and Holy Spirit."
Baptism is symbolic of the Christian's death to his old life, its burial and the Christian's resurrection to walk in the newness of life in Christ. Baptism serves as a confession of faith in God and a willingness to follow Christ.
The second ordinance is the Lord's Supper or Holy Communion, as it is frequently called. Baptist belief holds that the Lord's Supper is symbolic. The bread and the fruit of the vine are but symbols of the broken body and shed blood of Christ. Any baptized believer is eligible to partake of the Lord's Supper. It is observed as a remembrance of that which Christ did for us. The bread is symbolic of His body broken on Calvary's cross out of His love for us; and the fruit of the wine is symbolic of His blood, which was shed for the forgiveness of our sins.
We, Macedonia, partake in these two sacraments every 2nd Sunday of each month.
