Hi y'all, welcome to our podcast!
I'm psyched that you decided to check us out. Let me tell you a little bit about us:
MABCNYC is a church where people speak to you in the morning. It is a place of worship that honors everyone. It is a community of faith that follows a gospel of joy and laughter, not judgment and fear. In short, it's not the "Baptist Church" everyone expects.
And to be honest, its not the "Baptist Church" I grew up in either. I was raised in a formal, arms length church where only certain people were allowed and laughter and joy were checked at the door. Consequently, I left the church for over 20 years. Now, here I am, an ordained Baptist pastor (go figure), and my personal goal is to make sure everyone feels welcome in this, our home.

There are no contracts to sign, no blood oaths. Just subscribe to our podcast and visit us in New York if you can, no strings attached! Hey, you never know--you might like what you find. I'll be looking for you!
-- Rev. Susan Sparks

AWESOME

I would never (ever) have clicked on a podcast from any Baptist church knowing only of the Southern Baptist fundamentalist viewpoint. God's wonderful Holy Spirit lead me here just at the right time when my pastor has moved away and my soul needs nourishment. Susan is a joy and has a special gift from our loving creator that she is sharing with us. If you listen you will not be sorry and you will leave feeling you have gained insight. Take a listen.

Feel good religion

I have no problem with the use of humor during a sermon, and while these sermons contain some truth, the church is not following biblical teachings in allowing a woman to preach. Compromising the Word of God in this way (however innocent, progressive, inclusive, <insert other liberal terms here>) is wrong, and while it may fill the seats and make the other reviewers feel good, it makes me wonder what other biblical principles this church is willing to compromise?

Read the book

1 Timothy 2:12. It's true, from Genesis to Revelation.
