MISSION AND HISTORY
Maghull Baptist Church was built over 65 years ago when a group of people decided to build a local baptist church. The work began in the late 1940s, and the first building was erected in 1951 on what had previously been the rhubarb patch on a local farm, owned by one of the founder members. This is now the church hall, with a new worship area being built in 1976. Over the years, the church has grown and we have added buildings to cater for the many things we have going on in the church as it stands today. Maghull Baptist Church is a suburban Family church on the edge of Liverpool. There is current church work in all ages from creche to the elderly both on a sunday and midweek activites for the church and the community alike.
MINISTER: REVEREND KEITH PARR
Keith came to Maghull Baptist Church from his home town of Coventry in February 2016. His background is very much in mission, trying to work out how the church can speak and serve the community it serves. This seems to involve a lot of walking his dogs around the area, and finding excuses to sit in coffee shops! He is happiest when unpacking the Bible, talking about Jesus and trying to change peoples misconceptions about the church - and if that involves eating cake that's a price he is more than willing to pay.
FAMILY WORKER: KATIE EVANS
My name is Katie Evans and I have just started as 'family worker' at MBC. This is a part-time role which comes about through the desire of many in the church to build on the fantastic children's and youth work which has taken place over so many years.
God brings so many different types of people together, and the activities and groups are such a blessing to the community. This role is all about people and prayer - getting to know new people, supporting and championing the wonderful volunteers and praying!
We have a leadership team led by our Minister Keith Parr together with elected Elders and Deacons serving in the church.
The overall vision statement of the church is that MBC might enable people to Know, Grow and Go, as each of us takes our own journey through our relationship with Jesus.
WHAT DO WE BELIEVE?
Maghull Baptist Church follows the teaching of the Baptist denomination.
We believe that Jesus Christ was the Son of God, that he lived among us and died for the wrong things we have done. He rose again to be with His Father in Heaven but the Holy Spirit is with us to empower us. We believe that the Holy Bible is the Word of God and that the Holy Spirit through the Bible shows us God’s way for living.
We believe that people are the church and that together the people in the local church can work effectively in the local community to demonstrate God’s love.
Theologically, MBC is evangelical with some aspects of charismatic renewal, with 'seeker' style services and events as part of the outreach of the Church. The Alpha Course and Christianity Explored also play an important role in helping people discover Jesus.
