1. Where can I park? 

On street parking is available around the New Utrecht Cemetery next to the church, as well as on any of the local streets. On Sundays, the municipal parking lot on 86th Street between 17th and 18th Avenues, next to the New Utrecht branch of the public library, is available free of charge. This lot is only a block and a half away from the church. Exit out the back gate of the parking area, turn left on 85th Street. At 17th Avenue turn right and at 84th Street turn left. The church is half a block ahead on the left-hand side.  

2. How do I become a member? 

Everyone is invited to attend church services and seminars, whether or not they are members. Church Membership means the individual is committed to the message and ministry of Metropolitan Baptist. Church members actively participate in the purpose of Metropolitan Baptist Church utilizing their talents, time, and treasure to pursue the glory of God through its ministries and mission. The process of becoming a member entails three steps:
1). Attendance of CLASS 101, Discovering Church Membership (a five session course offered throughout the year or upon request).
2). An interview with the Pastor or Elder Board concerning a clear profession of faith and statement of baptism (if not baptized by immersion as a believer, the candidate will be scheduled to be baptized). 
3). Public reception as a member before the congregation upon affirmation of the church covenant.  

3. What is MBC’s theological position on …? 
The main positions of church doctrine are outlined in a summary of our Statement of Faith. If you have further questions, not answered by the Statement of Faith, feel free to e-mail Pastor Chris at c_n_gardner@yahoo.com.  

4. Is Metropolitan affiliated with a denomination? 

For thirty-four years Metropolitan Baptist Church remained independent of any other organization, while cooperating within the evangelical Christian community both locally and worldwide. In 2008, the church family voted to affiliate with the Southern Baptist Convention upon recommendation by the Pastor and Elder Board. This move has allowed the local congregation its continuing autonomy, while strengthening our ability to serve the wider Christian community. Through this cooperative effort, MBC has planted congregations for the Mandarin Chinese and for the South-Asian peoples. In conjunction with the Metropolitan New York Baptist Association, MBC has entered into justice ministry outreach through cooperative efforts with other likeminded ministries, both local and inter-national.
