About Mansfield Road Baptist Church
Are you new to the church or the area? If so, you are very welcome! Please do check out our New to Church page to get all the information about what goes on at our church.
We are a friendly church made up of people of a variety of ages, cultures and backgrounds. We love to see new people and are confident that you will feel right at home. Our Sunday mornings begin with a warm welcome and an invitation to join us in celebrating the good news about Jesus Christ. We expect God to meet with us and speak to us.
We are “The Church on the Corner” and the physical location of our buildings at the meeting place of main roads is a symbol of the kind of Church God calls us to be:
a Church which makes it possible for a wide variety of people to meet with one another and with God. We are to be “all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28)
a community of believers whose life revolves around the Lord Jesus Christ so that we become a living demonstration of the Kingdom of God to all with whom we come into contact so that they too may become His disciples. (Matthew 5: 14-16)
a serving community which reaches out with a commitment to life in all its fullness for all people. (John 10:10)
that God has called us to be a local church for the communities of Forest Fields, Carrington and Mapperley Park, demonstrating the Kingdom of God in service and evangelism;
that God has called us to be a central church, drawing people from a wide area of the city and beyond, challenging them to share in the mission to the immediate neighbourhood, and assisting and encouraging them to be active Christians where they live and work;
that God has called us to be a resource church as one of the larger congregations in the county, being involved with, encouraging and supporting Christian activity in new and existing ways through both Baptist and ecumenical channels;
that God has called us to be a world mission church, sharing in partnership with other congregations the responsibility for the promotion of mission in this nation and throughout the world.
We are also very active in our local community working alongside other agencies and running our own projects in order to express the love of God in a practical way.
