Worshipping Jesus. Together.
Mason Community Church has deep roots in the Mason community, having started ministry in 1839! For many years, MCC was named “First Baptist Church of Mason” and was located just south of the square. In 1962, the present building was constructed near the middle school and ministry continued to flourish. Today, the same evangelical, disciple-making commitment that birthed this congregation so long ago still moves in the hearts, prayers, and lives of those who comprise MCC!
MCC is loosely affiliated with the American Baptist Churches of Michigan, but is an autonomous church that makes its own decisions and takes responsibility for the quality and character of its ministry. MCC remains true to biblical standards regarding salvation, relationships, and purpose, but has chosen to be more contemporary than traditional in its style. The style expresses itself in song selection, instrumentation, and attire while the clear biblical message is expressed in the teaching.
The Psalmist proclaimed, “Sing unto the Lord a new song!” We do. The apostle Paul proclaimed that nobody should preach a salvation other than that of Christ. We don’t.
What do we believe?
The Bible is God’s Word for all times
Hebrews 4:12 says, “The Word of God is living and active. Sharper than a double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” We are convinced that the Bible is God’s vital and vibrant love letter to those who believe. The Bible reveals the character of God and the character of those who follow Him.
The Bible presents the way of salvation clearly and concisely
John 14:6 says, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 3:16-18 makes it even more clear. God gave his Son as our redeemer. Whether you accept the salvation Jesus offers is the most important choice you can make for all eternity.
Jesus died for our sin, rose from the dead, ascended into heaven and will return to earth someday
1 Corinthians 15:3-4 says “For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.”
The Holy Spirit is our counselor, guide, comforter, encourager, and strengthener
The Holy Spirit convicts people when they sin, leading them to repent and live a transformed life!
Every Christ follower is called to make disciples
Matthew 28:19-20 gives us this Great Commission: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
MCC’s vision is to assist believers in living the Great Commandment and fulfilling the Great Commission.
Jesus describes the Great Commandment as: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these” (Mark 12:30-31).
Matthew describes the Great Commission, saying: “Then Jesus came to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28: 18-20).
