Who We Are

Moline Baptist Church (MBC) is a fundamental, longstanding, multi-generational church that seeks to glorify God. Our Sunday morning worship has a relaxed atmosphere, yet focused on God. The worship music is a blend of hymns and choruses that seek to praise God, not the worshiper. Our people dress in everything from suits and dresses to jeans and T’s. We believe God desires clean, modest attire but he is more pleased with the condition and motivation of our hearts towards honoring him and loving others. We love God, we love one another and we anxiously seek to welcome visitors into our church family.
