Who We Are

We exist to help people meet Jesus and be radically changed by Him.

If you've been wondering who Jesus is and what His life has to do with you, we'd love the chance to tell you more about it.

If you know who Jesus is, but are curious about how your life can be changed by true grace, real mercy, and the complete forgiveness offered through Jesus, we'd love to have the chance to tell you more about it.

If you're worried about getting dressed up - don't. We don't, either.
If you're worried because you're not into religion - don't. We're not either.
If you're worried because your life isn't "together" - don't. We struggle, too.

Come experience this on a Sunday morning at 9:00 and 10:30 (Summer 9:00am only). You'll discover a group of people who are doing our best to live out the love of Jesus, care deeply about the Word of God, and truly believe that God can bring about an amazing change in your life.

There's no church experience required.

What to Expect

What are services like?

Walk into one of our main entrances and you'll be greeted by someone who is genuinely glad you came. Walk over to our cafe' and get an espresso (your first one's free!), enjoy some pastries, and make yourself comfortable. Your kids will be well loved and cared for through our nursery, Kidventure, or youth ministry programs - and you'll be grateful for the amazing people who care enough to give their time to your kids. In the worship service, we sing songs about the beautiful mystery of Jesus. Every week, we hear a message straight from the Bible about the power of God and the opportunity the truth of God gives us to be radically changed. Whether you find a seat in the main worship center or in the overflow room, you'll have the chance to discover something about God (and about yourself) every Sunday. The best ministry doesn't happen on stage, though - it happens in the relationships we create and in the people we empower to share the love of Jesus.

Church Leader

Gary Bassham

Gary Bassham

Gary joined the staff at MBC in March of 2012. He is married to DeDe and they have four married children - Troy, Julie, Jolene, and Jana. His dream for MBC is that the church would progress and reach Yakima with the Gospel. Gary's favorite movies are Chariots of Fire, Fiddler on the Roof, and most sport movies or dramas. Since he and DeDe have just recently moved here he is yet to decide what his favorite restaurant in Yakima is. He enjoys sports - especially golf. He enjoys all kinds of music, especially Southern Gospel, but doesn't care much for Rap. His favorite books are "What Is So Amazing About Grace" and "The Reign of The Servant Kings". He likes to watch college football on TV. Gary grew up in Texas and Oregon. If a movie were to made about his life, he says that Gene Hackman or Tom Hanks would take the lead role. Gary's favorite flavor of ice cream is Rocky Road.
