Letter from the Pastor

Dear Friends & Visitors,

In March of 2021, I was called as Pastor of Madison Baptist Church. My wife, Rachel, and I spent nearly our entire lives in Alabama, except for a short stint in North Carolina for my doctoral studies. We have a daughter, Rosemary, who fills our home with joy and love! Both Rachel and I share a passion for the Word of God, discipleship, and global missions.

From the moment we met the people that together from Madison Baptist, we were impressed with their hospitality, generosity, kindness, light-hearted community, and commitment to God. More than that, they have raised up generation after generation to follow Christ wholeheartedly, and fulfill his Great Commission command to take the gospel to the ends of the earth.

We came to Madison, GA, because we believe God has called us here with a clear mission and purpose. Above all, that mission is to teach the Word of God and make disciples of Jesus Christ. Our prayer is that God would so work in each of our lives that no one can encounter Madison Baptist without encountering people for whom it is evident that they know and love God.

We would love for you to join us in that mission. I am convinced that Madison Baptist Church is a great home for men, women, children – families, widows or singles – to grow in their faith. Not only that, you can do so as part of a church that genuinely loves one another.

We gather each Sunday morning at 10:15 A.M. for worship. During worship, we sing, pray, and hear teaching from God’s Word. It is our conviction that the Bible is the primary thing that God uses to reveal himself to us and shape us into his image as followers of Jesus.

Madison Baptist Church is a place for sinners. It’s a place for the hurting. It’s a place for the tired and distressed. This church is not a museum for the perfect: it is a hospital for the sick (spiritually—don’t worry; we are taking every COVID precaution during Sunday worship!). Madison Baptist Church gladly opens her doors for the weary, wounded, weak, and worn. Jesus is a friend of sinners. You don’t have to be somebody to be part of this church—just seeking Jesus and the grace that God provides.

If you’re looking for a church home, please join us for worship. I would be honored to meet you, and any family you have, and share more with you about our church and our common faith in Christ.

Please introduce yourself if God leads you to join us for worship, or if you seek to join our church family as a member.

I look forward to seeing you,
Pastor Griffin Gulledge
