What To Expect


We are a Bible believing church.

The sermons go through passages of Scripture digging out the truth in them (what is the Bible saying) and then giving practical applications for us today.

We practice believer’s baptism. We don’t believe that baptism saves you, but that it is an outward sign of an inward commitment to follow Christ having asked Him to forgive your sins and become the Lord of your life.

The clothing style is casual. Shorts, jeans, or dress pants are all acceptable.

The Worship Music consists of hymns, choruses, and modern songs.

We offer Sunday school at 9 am and the Worship Service starts at 10 am and lasts for an hour (more or less).

We are located at 806 IN 114 East in North Manchester, IN (just east of the bridge going out of town).

Communion is served whenever there is a 5th Sunday in the month (approximately 4 times a year).

We are a small, but friendly church. The average attendance is in the mid 50's.

ALL are welcome.

Our Story


We were founded in 1953 by a small group of people with a big vision from God.  They called it “The Miracle Church”

Our Beliefs


Scripture is our authority. The Missionary Church is committed to this basic statement of faith.

There is only one eternal, all-powerful, all-knowing and everywhere-present Triune God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit— who is the creator and sustainer of all things (Deuteronomy 6:4-5; 1 Timothy 2:5).

Jesus Christ is fully God and fully human. He lived a sinless life, died to make atonement for the sins of all mankind, was resurrected and is now mediator at the right hand of the Father. He is coming again in power and glory for His believing followers, and is the only Savior of mankind (John 1:1, 14; Titus 2:11-14).

He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, regenerating all who repent of their sins and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. He sanctifies, empowers, teaches, guides and comforts the believers (John 16:7, 8, 12-15).

The Bible is the inerrant, divinely inspired Word of God and authoritative in all matters it addresses (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21).

Salvation is the result of genuine repentance of sin and faith in the atoning work of Christ. It brings forgiveness to the repentant, makes him a participant of the divine nature and gives peace with God. We call this new birth (Titus 3:5; 1 Peter 1:3-5).

We believe in the invisible and universal Church as the living Body of Christ. It is composed of all believers in the Lord Jesus who have been vitally united by faith to Christ, its living Head and sovereign Lord (Matthew 16:18; Hebrews 12:22-24).

We believe there are two Christian ordinances: baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We believe they are outward rites appointed by Christ to be administered in each church, not as a means of salvation, but as a visible sign and seal of its reality (Acts 8:36; 1 Corinthians 11:24-34).
