Mapledale Baptist Church is located at 4015 Superior Avenue in Sheboygan. They do not appear to have a website, but they have a facebook page. As far as I know their pastor is still Guy L. Fredrick.
WHAT THEY BELIEVE
Ron Cobb, the church clerk for Mapledale Baptist Church forwarded me the following statement in December 2010, after I asked him what his church believed on the gospel:
“We affirm the Holy Bible as the inspired word of God and the basis for our beliefs. This church subscribes to the doctrinal statement of The Baptist Faith and Message as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 2000. We voluntarily band ourselves together as a body of baptized believers in Jesus Christ, personally committed to sharing the good news of salvation to lost humanity. The ordinances of the church are believer’s baptism and the Lord’s Supper.”
Mr. Cobb also gave me a link to the Baptist Faith and Message which can be found at http://www.sbc.net/BFM/ He assured me that as a Southern Baptist affiliate, Mapledale whole-heartedly endorses this document.
I believe that Maple-dale Baptist church is a gospel-believing church based on the documents they forwarded to me, and the friends that I have that go there. They have frequently been involved in publicly declaring the gospel to others in the Sheboygan area. We should all be motivated to take a stand for the gospel the way that this small, local church has, because there is no salvation except in Jesus Christ.
