Pastor’s Pen: January 2017 Issue

It is images that strike terror into the hearts of movie goers. Red flaming eyes are generally portrayed as evil. In the Star Wars movies, the dark side had the red saber light swords, while the good guys had cool blue. Haunted houses flare bright with red eyes appearing through walls, and demon movies always have fire coming from the mouth and eyes of the demons. . READ MORE...

Welcome

Wanting answers to life? Looking for purpose and meaning? At Metropolitan, we seek to be relevant, while remaining faithful to the historic Christian faith. We have entered an era when church attendance and participation has become unfashionable. Skepticism is on the rise. We are okay with that for two reasons. On the one hand, Christianity has ceased to be a cultural movement. Those who come tend to have a desire to seek the truth. That means that the church must have answers to meet the increasingly questioning community.. READ MORE ...

Welcome from Our Senior Pastor Chris

To know how Jesus Christ will transform your life

Welcome to Metropolitan’s website. We pray that through it you will deepen your desire to passionately seek God’s glory, and if the Lord so leads, you might join us in this quest as part of our three congregations.

At Metropolitan, we have a purpose statement, a summary of why we believe God has placed this congregation in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. That purpose statement goes like this: The purpose of Metropolitan Baptist Church is to create a passionate pursuit of God’s glory that leads to active worship, profound fellowship, hungering discipleship, purposeful ministry, and the enthusiastic spreading of the Good News.

We understand that the whole of the human race, as created by the eternal God, came into being in order to glorify God with our whole being. God created us as bearers of His image. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them (Genesis 1:17).

Unfortunately, though He created us to bear His image, the human race has rebelled against God. Everyone has turned from bearing God’s image and has become selfish and self-centered. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23 NIV).

That is why our purpose at Metropolitan is to create a passionate pursuit of God’s glory. We want our friends, neighbors, co-workers, family, and the whole world to realize that by rebelling against God and worshiping a god of their own making, they have failed to fulfill God’s purpose in creating them. As Pastor John Piper reminds us, God is most glorified in us, when we are most satisfied in Him.

So we, at Metropolitan, are passionate about helping men and women, boys and girls to become passionate about pursuing God’s glory, so that each person can fulfill what he or she was created to be. The manifestation of that passionate pursuit of God’s glory will be the five characteristics given in the purpose statement above. In many ways, the adjectives carry more weight than the nouns.

A passionate pursuit of God’s glory will lead to active worship – not just showing up for a Sunday worship service, but a life lived daily as an act of worship to God. It also leads to profound fellowship – not just a friendly church, but a church where the idea of the Family of God has become a reality. Furthermore, hungering discipleship will become a reality – not just Bible study, but a deep desire to know and experience what it means to walk with God. The glory of God is best manifested in purposeful ministry – for ministry is service, and the New Testament word for worship means to serve with a committed heart. Since what brings God glory above all things is the restoration of a human being to a right relationship with God, those who pursue God’s glory will enthusiastically spread the Good News about Jesus Christ to the whole world.

I invite you to join us in this grand purpose. While we readily admit we have not attained this purpose, we have committed ourselves to pursue it with passion.
