“It’s all about Jesus!”
This has been a saying around here for a long time. We don’t know who started it but it just sort of stuck. Our goal in everything that we do is to glorify our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Be that while we work in our community, mow the lawn of the Church, drive a van full of kids, study God’s word, or sing songs during a service. It is our hope that everything we do reflects the love and mercy God has shown to us. Come and join the journey that God is taking us on.
For more information on what this church has to offer, poke around, listen to a sermon, or take a look at some photos. We feel we have something to offer everyone. We have prepared this site to answer some initial questions you may have about the Church but hope you won’t leave it at that. We hope you’ll come for a service, a Bible study, a meal, or just drop by and get to know us.
Magalia Pines Baptist Church belongs first to the Lord Jesus Christ and is a member of the California Southern Baptist Convention.

Part of the Sunday Morning series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
|« Luke 14||None|
9:1 And he called the twelve together and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases, 2 and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal. 3 And he said to them, “Take nothing for your journey, no staff, nor bag, nor bread, nor money; and do not have two tunics. 4 And whatever house you enter, stay there, and from there depart. 5 And wherever they do not receive you, when you leave that town shake off the dust from your feet as a testimony against them.” 6 And they departed and went through the villages, preaching the gospel and healing everywhere.
7 Now Herod the tetrarch heard about all that was happening, and he was perplexed, because it was said by some that John had been raised from the dead, 8 by some that Elijah had appeared, and by others that one of the prophets of old had risen. 9 Herod said, “John I beheaded, but who is this about whom I hear such things?” And he sought to see him.
10 On their return the apostles told him all that they had done. And he took them and withdrew apart to a town called Bethsaida. 11 When the crowds learned it, they followed him, and he welcomed them and spoke to them of the kingdom of God and cured those who had need of healing. (ESV)
18 Now it happened that as he was praying alone, the disciples were with him. And he asked them, “Who do the crowds say that I am?” 19 And they answered, “John the Baptist. But others say, Elijah, and others, that one of the prophets of old has risen.” 20 Then he said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” And Peter answered, “The Christ of God.”
21 And he strictly charged and commanded them to tell this to no one, 22 saying, “The Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised.”
23 And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. 24 For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. 25 For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself? 26 For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when he comes in his glory and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels. 27 But I tell you truly, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God.” (ESV)
