We are honored that you have visited our website.  Maranatha Baptist Church desires to be a help to you and your family. “Maranatha” is a transliterated word from Aramaic that means “our Lord cometh”. The Apostle Paul used this word in his letter to the church in Corinth referring to our hope, as Christians, of our Savior’s return. It was used as word of hope and greeting for Christians of the early centuries and yet can still be used today!  Truly, we ought to live daily with an anticipation of His coming.

We are an independent Baptist Church that desires to please the Lord Jesus Christ.  We want to be a personal blessing to you and a positive testimony for Christ in the Rantoul area.  We love the Bible and encourage each other, with God’s help, to live out its teachings and principles.   For more information or for a ride to one of our services please call me.

Our theme for this year is “Rejoice in the LORD”.   Each service is an exciting new opportunity to fellowship around God’s Word and to grow in the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.  I want to invite you to come visit a service soon.  You will be encouraged to deepen your relationship with Jesus Christ.

If we can be a help to you or if you have any questions, please let us know. Have a good day!
