Who we are



We exist to please our Lord

You know who we are by the way we love one another.  One should be able to expect to see and experience Love when they walk into any Church that claims to love Jesus.  However, that is not always what happens, is it?  Come as you are.  That is what they say, and when you come as you are, you feel judged rather than loved.  Know the irony?  Church folk have as much in their closet as you do.  There is not a person in this world that isn’t in need of Jesus and what He did on that cross.  There also isn’t anyone that is without problems, hardships or heartache, and we ALL need help.  My name is Pastor James Nickerson, and I believe all our life problems are given perfect answers and advice how to deal with in Scripture.  Truth be told, we often only listen to or hear the advice and not DO what we learned.  Any of this sounding accurate?
This year, we will be acknowledging the “Association of Certified Biblical Counselors” (ACBC) Some might say this is a movement, I believe it is something all of us should have adopted years ago.  It places the relationship between God, His word and us in the proper perspective.  How does this help us and you?
We will be having a variety of different discipleship classes that will help us learn more strongly who we are and who Jesus truly is in our lives, and what it looks like how to (genuinely, sincerely) live that out on a day to day level.  As our relationship grows closer with our Lord and Savior…  So will our relationships within the Church body.  We will not dismiss the real sin issues that are in need of giving it to God through true repentance, but we also won’t dismiss the need for tenderness and love for those in the middle of it.  It is truly our desire here at Midway, that this Church and those in it are ruled by the Love God shows us by example.  I pray from this point forward, if anyone asks or says anything about Midway Baptist, it would be synonymous  with that Love.  Not for our sake, but for solely the Glory of God.    


Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.

From the Pastor’s Desk
We’re glad that you have stopped by to learn what we’re all about.  We hope you see our passion for Jesus and His gospel.  He is the only reason that we do what we do.  Growing up in the 60’s and 70’s, I entered into my adult years with a negative stigma about church.  The church traditions, the do/don’t do list, the view of the hypocritic Christian, everyone looks the same, fake people, etc.  When I finally surrendered to Jesus Christ in my mid-30’s, I realized the need of the church, God’s Word, coupled with an intimate relationship with Jesus and His body for happy, healthy Christian living.  I thought God had to have a sense of humor since He called me to be a Pastor.
Carrying some of my legitimate concerns previously mentioned, I went to Baptist Bible College because I believe in the Baptist doctrine.  I am still not fond of traditions.  I find they prevent forward movement, growth and fruitfulness in the church.  Instead of seeing God’s Word as a do/don’t do list now, I understand it’s there to show us how we ought to live.  With God’s grace , even in times of failure, He restores me with the help of a healthy body in the church.
Nope, still not a fan of the cookie-cutter church with the hypocrites and fake Christians, however, they need to be in the church also for their own salvation and growth.  It is my true desire in miles down the road of ministry here at Midway to see a congregation filled with people from all walks of life, cultures and demographics.  After all, Christ died for all and the church should reflect that.  Also, I pray our people can and will be genuine in their desire to grow closer to their Master and be in the church the same way they are out of the church.
Will church ever be perfect?  Not on this earth and this life.  I believe everyone has a closet full of hard times, hurt, embarrassing choices and are all in need of God’s grace and the sufficiency of His Word.  I believe when a body of believers love one another and care for one another as the scripture says, church can and will be the best place to spend time together.
