MAC is Spirit led and Gospel driven church. Our Pastors & Elders prayerfully commit our people, activities and events to the transforming power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We also seek to share the Gospel with our community and beyond, through ministries for all ages to join.
We expect from all our leaders that they know and love Jesus, being those who have have been changed by the cross and live by the power of the Holy Spirit. They are men and women who continually live by God’s Word and commit us to following Jesus and relying on Him in the same way.
Growing up loosely churched by attending church services with my parents from time to time, left me with an understanding of who God was but no personal understanding of the Gospel. In Sunday school I heard that the disciples all fled when Jesus was taken prisoner before being crucified. ‘Friends don’t abandon a friend like,’ I thought. The Bible lesson seemed like a ridiculous call to negativity, expectation of failure, and I didn’t want to have anything to do with it. As I left church, I began to see that fewer and fewer people would really sacrifice for one another. The world left me disheartened. But a friend invited me to church and there I saw a different kind of community and I saw it with fresh eyes. That community didn’t start caring for one another based on what a friend “should be.” They cared for one another because of the way Jesus did for them. Jesus laid his life down that all his friends would be saved from sin and death and that instead they would receive life and the Spirit. I prayed to trust in Jesus, not because I was a good friend (in fact I was just like the disciples) but because he was. Now I live in light of the cross and the great love my God has poured out to me.
