About Us

Morningside Baptist Church was constituted on July 30, 1972. We are a body of redeemed believers who love one another and our neighbors. 

Our mission is to make the Gospel visible in our lives and community.

We Believe

We believe in God the Father, creator of heaven and earth; Jesus Christ the Son of God; and the Holy Spirit. Gen1:1; Matt 28:19

We believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross, was buried and, in body, rose again on the third day. 1 Cor 15:1-4

We believe that God loved the world so much that he sent his son Jesus to die on the cross to save us from our sins so that if we believe in him we may have eternal life with him. John 3:16

We believe the only way to have an eternal relationship with God is through Jesus. Jesus said “I am the way the truth and the life no one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6

We believe that the Bible (the Old and New Testament) is the ultimate rule and standard of faith given by the inspiration of God and containing all things necessary for salvation.

Morningside holds to the foundational statements held in the Baptist Faith and Message 2000 as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention.
