Mission Statement

The mission of the MP3 men's ministry is to connect with men in our church and in our community. To draw men to Christ from every place by witnessing and sharing the loving power of Christ Jesus our Lord. The goal of MP3 is to embrace men who come to Christ, and helping them to become better men of God, husbands, and fathers. We want to help men grow and develop spiritually and socially. Our commitment to every man is to help men develop the spiritual character of God through the discipleship making process. Our goal is to teach men the biblical definition of manhood as it is described in scripture. To teach men what a biblical man's role and responsibility looks like when lived out in life. Our goal is to model before men the character of real manhood in a seemly confused and Godless society. Our goal is to help men develop a personal relationship with God, with their family and with their church and their community. Then still our goal is to teach men how to be the Priest, Protector, and Provider of our family. We hold ourselves accountable to this mission and to one another as men. We have adopted the following core values:

What Does MP3 Stand For?

MP3 is the acronym we use at Manhattan Christian Fellowship Church to describe the biblical role of manhood we have embraced from the Holy Bible. In scripture manhood can be understood and defined in three ways:

First, we find man functioning in the role of a "Priest" Revelation 1:6) this is his spiritual position with God his Father through Christ. Man is responsible for leading his family into a saving relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and in the ways of God's Word.

Secondly, we find man functioning in a role as a "Provider" (1 Timothy 5:8). Man is responsible for providing for the basic needs of his family. He is to provide stability, security, and predictability.

Thirdly, we see man functioning in a role as a "Protector" (Ephesians 5:25). Man is to love his wife as he loves himself and cares for himself. He sacrifices himself to protect his family (Ephesians 5:25-33).
