2023 Season of Easter
LENT: The English word lent (stems from an Anglo-Saxon word for “spring” and is related to the English word lengthen; refers to the penitential period preceding Easter. Early Christians felt that the magnitude of the Easter celebration called for special preparation. As early as the second century, many Christians observed several days of fasting as part of that preparation.

Lent is the period of 40 weekdays before Easter observed in some Christian churches as a period of prayer, penance, fasting, and self-denial. This period, starting on Ash Wednesday in Western churches, commemorates the 40 days that Jesus Christ spent fasting in the wilderness. How will you commemorate this Season of Lent?
Our adaptation for The Season of Lent will be the Season of Easter; our theme (Milford Church) is the Deity of Christ (recognizing who Jesus is) beginning on 2-26-23.
Ash Wednesday (2-22-23) officially begins the countdown to Easter. Some Churches have a special service whereby members receive “ash” on the forehead in the shape of a cross followed with similar words: “Remember you are dust and to dust you shall return. Turn away from sin and be faithful to Christ.” This reminds us (Believer) of our mortality and creates the proper perspective in reference to eternal life and security.
In essence, we are preparing for heaven; getting ready for the great reunion while finishing the work that God sets before us. Remembering, our work is not about earning our place, nor proving our worthiness, or that we deserve such a place – heaven. The plan of Salvation hinges on justification, designed by God from the foundations (Hebrew 9:23-27) of the world; being perfect in design and implementation. In addition, the proof of God be satisfied is implicit by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
Rather, our (Milford Church) Season of Easter will encourage us to focus upon the deity of Jesus Christ, the necessary sacrifice, and discover a new understanding that Jesus is divine. It was by God’s divine hand man was created and it was a necessary sacrifice by Jesus’ divine blood man was reconciled. Jesus, alone, makes the way to heaven, not us, not our works or deeds. He is the way, the truth, and the life. We are but dust; He is the great and magnificent Savior.

Milford Baptist Church
Milford Baptist Church is a family oriented church believing in conservative Christianity. We at MBC believe that Jesus Christ is the prophetic messiah of the Old Testament as follows:
Jesus is the son of God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth; who was conceived of the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary; who suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried, descended into hell and on the third day He rose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence, He shall come to judge, the quick and the dead.
We at MBC believe in the Holy Ghost, the holy church of God, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
