a Christ centered community of faith on the MS Gulf Coast and autonomous partner of CBF

Who we are
St. Martin Baptist Fellowship (SMBF) is a Christcentered community of faith, welcoming to all, passionate about learning through Bible-focused worship how to better model our lives after Jesus Christ. We are seekers of God and His eternal truth, ecumenical in our approach to listening to and caring for others who have differing points of view, and committed to doing Christ's love through ministries to those in our communities. We speak Christ's truth as the reason for doing ministry.

How we worship and do ministry
SMBF worships when attending our Sunday gatherings by experiencing how to increase our love and understanding of God and people through Bible-focused worship, the Lord's Supper (1st Sunday of every month), prayer, fellowship, and light family meal; ultimately deepening our relationships with God, each other, and people of our community.
From these worship and fellowship experiences, we learn to express Jesus' compassion and love in ministry through word and deed to those we touch in our daily walk with God. To do this effectively, we are formed as a 501c3 Christian ministries organization with the Sunday evening fellowship/worship being one of those ministries. We believe we are stewards of God’s resources, and that we are commanded by Matthew 25:31-40 to do the best we can to use God’s resources to help those in need in our community. We “walk” the community in our daily jobs, schools, and neighborhoods to build relationships with others, identify needs, and show Christ's love by helping where we can.
