As children of God, we’re called to go out into the world and advocate for Christ and his importance to all of us. We’ve been a constant presence in the community for over four decades, and many of the members of our church are multi-generational families with strong roots in the area. Because of this, we work with several organizations to make lasting change for those who need it. If you’re searching for a way to make a difference in the world around you, consider becoming a member of a Baptist church that’s dedicated to going out of the building to connect with those in need.
All of us have value in the eyes of the Lord. Because of this, we’re called to use our talents and skills to work for Christ. At Macedonia Baptist Church, we believe in focusing on our individual members, their needs, and where they are in their journeys with God. Those in the Minneapolis area who are searching for meaning can rely on us to put them first and give them the support and assistance they need to grow closer to Christ. When you worship at our Baptist church, you’ll never be just another face in the crowd.

As members of the Baptist church, we’re called to understand God’s purpose for us here on Earth. We do this by focusing on the instructions that are laid out for us in the Bible. Because of this, our congregation believes in consistent and in-depth study of the biblical text. When you become a member of our flock, you’ll be pushed to better understand your place in the world as a servant of Christ. When we make the effort to understand what God is telling us, we can live more fulfilling lives that are in service to Him and His glory. Our goal is to be a force for change that’s led by the Word of God.
