MAX’s mission is to discern and partner with the strengths and diversity of all Xenia area local churches, and para-church ministries to accomplish in a unified manner what could not be accomplished as effectively alone. In doing so we will provide an inter-church agency focused on prayer, community worship, religious education, evangelism, and community welfare.

There is one true God, eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – each of whom possesses equally all the attributes of Deity and the characteristics of personality.
God is revealed in the Holy Word, the Bible. The words of the Bible are powerful, transformative, and true.
The Word declares that God created all things and that humanity was made in God’s likeness. Humanity chose to rebel against God, and this choice ushered in a curse of sin upon humanity and destruction on the world.
God did not abandon humanity, but instead, He sent His son Jesus into the world to save humanity from the curse. Jesus died on the cross to offer the rescue from the curse. Humanity’s curse and punishment became His, though He was innocent. Jesus was buried, but on the third day, He rose up from death in victory, and now dwells with God in heaven, sitting at His right hand.
Salvation is wholly a work of God’s free grace and is not the work, in whole or in part, of human works or goodness or religious ceremony. God imputes His righteousness to those who put their faith in Christ alone for their salvation and thereby justified them in His sight. Those who trust in Jesus’ work on the cross are members of His eternal kingdom.
Jesus will return soon to judge the living and the dead. Those judged righteous by faith will inherit a new, perfect kingdom with God. Those who chose not to put faith in Jesus will be separated from Him and face eternal punishment. He comes quickly, and the time is now to awaken the world to His truth.
