Welcome to Madison Baptist!
We are Montrealers who love the Lord and are passionate about loving the community around us and studying the Book He gave us, the Bible. Our worship services feature a varirty of music, blending instruments and vocals. We love children, and have programs designed for them. Our desire is to serve our Lord Jesus Christ, and to grow in knowledge of Him daily.
The purpose of the Church is to be the worshipping people of God on Earth, being formed into a redemptive fellowship for the nurture of the believer, to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to make disciples in response to the Lord's Commission and to be an influence for righteousness in our society
Who we are
Hebrews 2:17-18 [talking about Jesus]
"...For this reason he had to be made like his brothers in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people. Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted."
So, why should I come to church....?
What if the Christian message is true? That means that God is VERY interested in you... in fact He built the universe to help you to get to know Him. Why does God want us to believe in Him? Well, He doesn't want you to just believe in Him, He wants to have an intimate and up-close relationship with you. That's why He made you a person and not a robot- each unique and with a personality, a soul that is made in His image. That's the whole point of Jesus being born into the world; God Himself putting an end to our addiction to sin and self-destruction through a true friendship with everyone who wants sit down and share everything with Him.
Are we free, or prisoners enslaved to rules and rituals? Do we live by grace or by the Law? Pastor Tom Paul takes us through the book of Galatians.
We have this week's sermon you can listen to!
To our neighbours in N.D.G. and the rest of Montreal, welcome to

JESUS LOVES YOU. FOR REAL.
You don't have to be "Good enough". He knows all about you and still loves you! Don't be afraid to go to Him- just talk to Him and tell Him your fears and your joys. He's been there, done that.
IF YOUR FAITH
FEELS LIKE A CHORE,
YOU'RE DOING IT
Jesus makes you FREE.
If you feel ike a slave,
let me ask you- do you
really think God wants
you to feel that way? .
"Hey Madison, what are you all about?"
Ha! That's easy.
Jesus. Everything else is boring.

No, it's not a mirage.... we can have HOPE.
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives
and recovering of sight to the blind,
to set at liberty those who are oppressed,
to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor.”
WE are ALL the poor, the captives, the blind, and the oppressed. Sometimes liberty is taken from us, and sometimes we imprison ourselves. Christ has come to set us free from the slavery of sin and fear to enjoy Him and true liberty-
"if God is for us, who can be against us?"
Pascal's 'Night of Fire'
In 1654 Philosopher and Mathematician Blaise Pascal had a dramatic encounter with God. He wrote down his experience, and sewed it into the liner of his coat. It wasn't until after his death that people learned of this and realized everywhere he went Pascal carried this experience with him. This encounter has become known as "Pascal's Night of Fire."
From about half past ten in the evening until half past midnight.
'God of Abraham, God of Isaac, God of Jacob,' not of philosophers and scholars.
Certainty, certainty, heartfelt, joy, peace.
God of Jesus Christ.
God of Jesus Christ.
My God and your God.
'Thy God shall be my God.'
The world forgotten, and everything except God.
He can only be found by the ways taught in the Gospels.
Greatness of the human soul.
'O righteous Father, the world had not known thee, but I have known thee.'
Joy, joy, joy, tears of joy.
I have cut myself off from him.
They have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters.
'My God wilt thou forsake me?'
Let me not be cut off from him for ever!
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent.'
I have cut myself off from him, shunned him, denied him, crucified him.
Let me never be cut off from him!
He can only be kept by the ways taught in the Gospel.
Sweet and total renunciation.
Total submission to Jesus Christ and my director.
Everlasting joy in return for one day's effort on earth.
I will not forget thy word. Amen.
As Jesus said,
"Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me."
Revelation 3:20 (NIV)
Church is THE place to find out about this relationship. Its a place of learning; a gathering of other Christians to encourage one another; a place to worship together, pray together, have a great time together! If you're not a Christian, you're welcome to come right in and look around! You can sit right up front or in the back rows, take off right after the service, or better yet, come downstairs for refreshments and get to know us and what we're about!

How can I know God? (and why should I....?)
A good answer to such a good question.

FAITH, HOPE, LOVE,
Word of the month: Mercy
"He that seeks us before we sought Him, will He refuse us when we seek after Him? Let no man therefore despair or even be discouraged; if there be in you the height and depth, and length and breadth of sin, there is also much more the height and depth and length and breadth of mercy in God, and though we have played the harlot with many lovers, yet let us return again. For His thoughts are not as ours, and His mercies are the mercies of a reconciled God."
