About Maine Coast Baptist Church

Thank you for taking the time to find out more about Our Church. Maine Coast Baptist Church was established in Ellsworth, ME. in 1984 on 104 acres of land and a former sheep barn as the fellowship hall. Two building programs later we can seat 200 people in a beautiful new sanctuary and share a fellowship meal in our multipurpose room. We have Sunday school classrooms, kitchen, toddlers & nursery spaces and are looking forward to building phase number 3 which should begin in October 2010. Phase 3 is now complete and includes a Jr/Sr High space, Junior Church space, new nursery space, library, secretary’s office, pastor’s office and storage space. We are excited about how God has blessed. We hope that after you look through our website and attend a worship service, you will consider becoming a more active participant of our growing community of faith.
 
Led by Pastor Gerry Dill and many wonderful men and women volunteers, Maine Coast Baptist Church offers many ministries for people of all ages and walks of life who are looking to strengthen their relationship with Jesus Christ.

Loving God, loving one another, and reaching out to others.

To join with God in His work of salvation to the unsaved and His work of sanctification to the saved beginning at home and continuing abroad.
 

A Community of Faith

Our church is not just about a weekly service on a Sunday morning. We are a community of faith sharing our lives together. We share our joys, successes and good times. We also share our hurts, disappointments and failures. Our Christian walk of faith encourages us to trust in God whatever the circumstance. As the Apostle Paul wrote, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13)
 

We Are Followers

Ultimately, as followers of Jesus, we aspire to His teachings, we are taught by the Bible, and we are daily surrendering our lives to the guidance of the Holy Spirit. In the simplest terms, it means we endeavor to allow God daily, in the person of Jesus, to sit on the throne of our hearts taking control of our lives. Popular culture is in direct conflict with this approach to life, so we find that we need a support group of fellow believers to help us on this journey. That is what our church community is all about. We have people in many different stages of that journey. Whether you’re a seeker and not sure what you believe yet, a new believer struggling with your new identity in Christ or a veteran Christian, you’ll find others here that you can connect with right where you are.
 
We look forward to taking the journey with you!
