The Metropolitan Laymen Ministry is proud to be a part of Empire Missionary Baptist Convention Laymen Auxiliary and the Capital District Laymen (Area II). We follow the same mission and objectives of the parent body and execute on that mission here at Metropolitan NTM Baptist Church.
ALL MEN ARE WELCOMED AND ENCOURAGED TO JOIN US! By joining the body of Christ you are automatically a layman of the church. It simply means that you are a believer and you are not a minister of the church. We strongly believe we are all brothers with something to add to the kingdom of God and we should support one another in spiritual growth.
The Mission of the Empire Baptist Laymen’s Auxiliary is to provide Christian ministry, education, fellowship and activities which will meet the needs and enrich the lives of men, women, and children in New York State.
The Purpose Of The Laymen’s Movement In The Local Church:
- To enlist and coordinate the manpower of the local congregation for an effective performance of essential Christian activities.
- To cultivate the Christian life of laymen through study, worship, fellowship, and service.
- To enlist unchurched men for fellowship in and service through the church and to bring unsaved men into vital relations with God in Christ through personal commitment to Him.
- To inspire men to support the total program of the Church in the local congregation, the community, the denomination, and the world.
