Welcome 

Welcome to First Baptist Church of Mandan

We are a loving, growing church anchored in Christ

 

First Baptist Church of Mandan is not really like other churches.  Much is different here in our attitude and our journey with Jesus.  Our kind of church doesn’t fit everyone’s expectations of what a church should be.

This church is not for Christians who have made Chuck Norris, and not Jesus, their hero.

It is not for academics who would imprison Jesus in the tower of exegesis.

It is not for noisy, feel good folks who manipulate Christianity into a naked appeal to emotion.

It is not for the hooded mystic who wants magic in their religion.

It is not for Alleluia Christians who live on the mountaintop and have never been to the valley of desolation.

It is not for the fearless or the tearless.

It is not for the red-hot zealots who boast with the rich young ruler of the gospels, “All these commandments I have kept from my youth.”

It is not for the complacent who hoist over their shoulders a tote bag of honors, diplomas and good works, actually believing they have it made.

It is not for legalists who would rather surrender control of their souls to rules rather than run the risk of living in union with Jesus.

Our church exists for the beat-up, bedraggled and burnt-out.

It is for the sorely burdened who are still shifting the heavy baggage from one hand to another.

It is for the wobbly and weak-kneed who do not have it all together and are too proud to accept the handout of amazing grace.

It is for the inconsistent, unsteady disciples who cheese is sliding off their cracker.

It is for poor, weak sinful men and women with hereditary faults and limited talents.

It is for earthen vessels who shuffle along on feet of clay.

It is for the bent and bruised who feel their life is a grave disappointment to God.

It is for smart people who know they are stupid and honest disciples who admit they are scalawags.[1]

Our church is for anyone, and everyone, who wants to come to Jesus.
