a journey through the book of Acts
People often wonder about their purpose in life and where they came from. In fact, all of us long to see our life narrative as part of something bigger than ourselves. The good news is that God has a plan, a purpose for each of us: To bring Him glory as we advance His kingdom and see lives transformed! In our “Sent” series, we will journey through the book of Acts and see how God began the movement known as His church. From its humble beginnings, the church has made an impact on history that cannot be ignored. As we hear how the church was born, how it grew, how it overcame fierce opposition, we receive fresh inspiration to join God on his mission today.
In today's consumer-driven culture, there is always a tendency for the Church to exist for itself. We must fight this temptation! The book of Acts is our reminder of what being the Church is really all about — God's people doing God's work together by the power of God's Spirit.
MBC's calling: Take look at the History of the Church from Acts through God's calling of our own church here at Millington Baptist.

Who is Jesus?
On the list of people who are the most influential in all the world, you might find five people on that list. Most people would say Jesus is on that list. In fact, He is probably in the top five, he might even be in the top three. Some people say that He’s even number one - the most influential person in all the world to ever have lived. Here’s the difference between Jesus and everyone else on the list: Jesus claimed to be both our Saviour and Lord. Because of the magnitude of that proposition, we at least owe it to ourselves to diligently look into that as a life-changing truth claim. Why is it that no other person in all of history has been so manipulated, changed, and caricatured more than the person of Jesus Christ? Can we give a reasoned defense for Christianity and for the historical Jesus as being the Christ of our faith? Can we show our faith is defensible? Was Jesus a real historical figure? Was His birth predicted in advance? Are the four gospels recorded accurately as history? Who is Jesus? Join us for Holy Week as we tackle this question, and in turn freshly meet the most brilliant teacher who ever lived and the one who meets our deepest needs.
