What to Expect
You will find a warm, friendly congregation waiting to welcome you. Regardless of your nationality, income level, education level, or occupation in life, there is a place for you and your family in our church family.
Our Sunday Morning Worship service is two hours long for the 9:45 am service and includes congregational singing, special music, and the preaching and teaching of God's Word, the Bible.
What is a Baptist church?
As an independent Baptist church, we are not affiliated with any particular Baptist denomination or ruling body. Because of this we can support our own missionaries, select our own leaders, and support institutions that believe as we believe. In short, our church answers to the headship of Jesus Christ rather than a denominational body.
I'm not a Baptist... Can I still attend?
Absolutely! Every week we have guests from different denominations – and some with no church background – in our services. Our goal is not to make Baptists out of everyone, but to lead people into a personal relationship with God.
Will I feel welcome at Mount Airy Church?
Yes. It is our hope that anyone from any walk of life will feel welcome at Mount Airy.
Will I have to stand up in front of people?
Guests are asked to stand up, but it’s not mandatory! Prior to the start of our worship experience, we request individuals or families to identify themselves to the Church body. Following your introduction, we offer a special welcome to our visitors. At that time, members of our Get Acquainted ministry and others will greet you with smiling faces and offer information about our Church and answer any questions you may have.
What should I wear to church?
We do not have a "dress code" at our church. Wear what you already have in your closet. You will see some people "dressed up" in the their "Sunday best" and some will be dressed more causally. More important than what you wear is that you come with a honest and open heart.
Do I have to bring a Bible?
We believe the Bible is God's only Word for us today and is the instruction manual for this life and all eternity. There are Bibles in each row that are within arm's reach of your seat during the church service in case you didn't bring one.
Will I be asked to give money?
All contributions are voluntary.
