Welcome to the website of Maple Avenue Bible Church!
It is our desire to help everyone develop a genuine relationship with God through a thorough understanding of His Holy Word as we continue to provide a solid Biblical foundation for all who attend.  We trust that God's love is seen in and through us as we endeavor to reflect the character of the Lord Jesus Christ.
