Truth: God's word, the Bible, is the basis for our doctrinal beliefs, worldview, and ministry plan. We will preach truth, defend truth, and proclaim truth.
People: Real love is the foundation for real fellowship and community. The presence of Christ among His people should be evident in our love for each other.
God's Glory: The church must be a place where we are humbled, Christ is exalted, and God is glorified. The church exists to bring glory to God and to be a place where prayer, encouragement, healing, and personal growth takes place.
Prayer: Prayer is God's way of communication with us. Christians are only as strong as their prayer life, and so is the Church. We desire to make prayer a cornerstone of Mercer Baptist. It is also our aim to see individuals and families making prayer a vital part of their daily lives.
Families: The family is the basis of our society and the church. A strong church must have strong families.
The Great Commission: We are committed to obeying the Great Commission locally, nationally, and internationally. We are striving to make Jesus Christ's last command our first obedience.
Leadership Development: We will pray for leaders to emerge, prepare leaders for ministry and propel leaders into ministry.
Change: We reserve the right to try and fail until we get it right!
