Isaiah 25:1  NIV  –  LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago.

    Tomorrow, July 25th, is the 98th anniversary of the founding of Meridian Avenue Baptist Church  There were 54 charter members and their first church home was a small white frame building that stood at the same location where our church stands today.  They gathered with a vision to create a new place of worship on what was then the western edge of Wichita, KS.

     Time has passed and Wichita has grown far west of our church home.  Still, Meridian Avenue Baptist Church remains as a testament to those few people who had a vision to plant a new church in the service of Christ Jesus.  They responded to the movement of the Holy Spirit that empowered them to give of their time and resources in Christ’s service.

     Christ continues to call upon us to serve him with our talents, time and resources.  We should ask ourselves daily what Christ would have us do for his kingdom.
