Focused On Family

At Metropolitan Baptist Church, we remain focused on the family because it was the first institution established by God, and it is the foundation of His plan for victorious living. Knowing this to be true, and believing that the family is the most important part in the process of healing hurting people, the Metropolitan Baptist Church Family will maintain as its theme; "Bringing Families Together Around the Word of God".
