Who is welcome at Mechanicsville Baptist Church?
Everyone! We understand that churches are made up of people and no one among us is perfect. We also understand the Biblical principle that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”. However, Mechanicsville Baptist Church is open to any person who comes truly seeking God. Though we hold to the principles set forth in the Bible, we realize that everyone needs a relationship with Jesus Christ. We make no distinction based on race, creed, denominational affiliation, or background. Therefore, come and you just may find what you’re looking for!
After the service:
Pastor Ted and Charlene are always available after the service to greet you and answer any questions you may have. We also have counselors available to answer questions you may have.
