This We Believe
The Triune God: In the name of God we declare and confess before men that we believe in the only true God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; that these three are one; that this triune God created the heavens and the earth and all that is in them. This God sustains, protects, and supports the same.
Jesus Christ, the Son: We believe in Jesus Christ, that He is both God and Man. We believe that He was born of a virgin and that He is Savior and Mediator of the whole human race. We believe that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and arose alive from the grave; that He then ascended to Heaven and is now seated at the right hand of the Father.
The Holy Spirit: We believe in the Holy Ghost; that He is equal with the Father and the Son, and that He comforts the faithful, and guides them into all truth.
The Church: We believe in the Holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the resurrection of the body, life everlasting.

Our History- The Macedonia United Brethren Church is the outgrowth of a revival movement and the leadership of Jacob Garling, a layman. At the close of 1881, Mr. Garling conducted a series of prayer meetings at the California schoolhouse. Rev John Fohl, of the King Street U.B. Church, came to assist with the meetings and stayed for two months.
An acre of ground was purchased across the road from the present location and a 32 by 42 foot church building was dedicated on November 19, 1882, which was free from indebtedness. The name given to the new congregation was “The Macedonia Church of the United Brethren Church.”
In 1891, the Greencastle Circuit was established and for some time Macedonia was connected with Greencastle as a mission. For some two years, Middleburg, Macedonia, Ebenezer, and Pleasant Hill constituted the Middleburg Circuit.
In 1962, Macedonia was assigned its own full-time pastor after being on a circuit with the Ebenezer Church.
Over the years God has blessed our church and has used us. He continues to work his love and ministry through us. We believe that he will continue to use and bless us as we faithfully serve him.
