A Blog for MSBC Family

Some may be interested in our church family blog that will be run by the pastoral team. One feature that we are going to try to maintain is what we call the “Liturgy Page.” This will give a program for the coming Sunday (or past Sunday depending on when you view it) with explanation and links to songs, etc.

Church Membership is Vital

Any charlatan can say, “I have submitted to Christ’s rule.” Yet submission is so anathema and counter-intuitive to our fallen natures that we can easily deceive ourselves into thinking we have submitted to him when we haven’t.  How easy it is to say the words, “Christ is Lord,” but to do them is a different matter altogether.  The authoritative structures of the local church provide the professing Christian with the opportunity to do those words, “Christ is Lord.”
