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.
