Es­tab­lished in 1911, Mans­field Bap­tist Church has been serv­ing their com­mu­nity for over 95 years. In the next up­com­ing months the min­istry will be cel­e­brat­ing their 100th birth­day.

Pas­tor Jeff R. Perkins, who came to the min­istry in 1996, has been serv­ing the Mans­field con­gre­ga­tion for over 18 years. Orig­i­nally lo­cated in down­town Mans­field, the church outgrew its quar­ters and moved its con­gre­ga­tion to a larger cam­pus in 2006. This en­rich­ing cam­pus now lo­cated off of Wood­lawn Road sits on 21 acres of beau­ti­ful land.

Along with its beau­ti­ful fa­cil­i­ties, Mans­field Bap­tist also has a com­mu­nity of be­liev­ers known for be­ing a fam­ily-ori­ented con­gre­ga­tion.

Pas­tor Perkins said there is always some­thing go­ing on at Mans­field Bap­tist be­cause of this fam­ily at­mos­phere.

In clos­ing out their sum­mer’s fes­tiv­i­ties, Pas­tor Perkins says the church’s Va­ca­tion Bi­ble School was a huge suc­cess.

Mov­ing into to their fall sea­son, there are a lot of events to look for­ward to. Com­ing up in Septem­ber, Mans­field will be host­ing a Sports­man’s Din­ner. This din­ner will be ded­i­cated to any per­son in­volved in ath­letic ac­tiv­ity. Pro­ceed­ing the din­ner, Mans­field Bap­tist will also start their “week of Re­newal” with guest Speaker Danny Sin­gle­ton. This week is de­signed to re­new one’s walk in Christ by em­pha­siz­ing the church’s mis­sion state­ment of “Sharing Christ and Shap­ing Christ Fol­low­ers.”

Other ac­tiv­i­ties to look out for are the an­nual Fall Fes­ti­val, the 5k Run and Op­er­a­tion Christ­mas. Th­ese are just a few of the ma­jor events listed on their win­ter cal­en­dar.

In ad­di­tion to host­ing won­der­ful events through­out the year, future en­deav­ors for the min­istry in­clude ex­pan­sion, but as Pas­tor Perkins as­sures: min­istry is run­ning smoothly and they’re not look­ing to build any­time soon. Of­fer­ing two ser­vice times on Sun­day morn­ing—Early Wor­ship ser­vice start­ing at 11 a.m. and Even­ing Wor­ship ser­vice start­ing at 6 p.m. The goal of Mans­field Bap­tist is to share the love of Christ through­out the com­mu­nity. Mans­field Bap­tist also of­fers dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties through­out the week.
