About us...

Hello Visitors, Friends, and Family,

Welcome to our website here at Macedonia Baptist Church. I am Eric Pace, the Teaching Elder. Macedonia was launched in 1880 by Mt. Zion Baptist and Sandy Creek Baptist (the arm of all Southern Baptist churches founded by Shubal Stearns in 1755). Macedonia is rich in local traditions such as  teaching and preaching line by line. We are active in contemporary outreach ministries: Pillars Biblical Counseling Center and 16 Cents (domestically), Alex McFarland Ministries (nationally), and Mercy and Grace Ministries (internationally). We would be delighted to have you and your family come and worship with us.
