What we value

Our Mission

The mission and ministry focus of Mountain View Baptist Church is to glorify God and to do life together as a family of Christian believers.  We are devoted to growing in our love for God, our love for others and faithfully living out the truths of His Word.  We are committed as ambassadors to carry out Christ’s mission of disciple-making in our community and worldwide.

Our Purpose & Process

Our “purpose” (what we do) and our “process” (how we do it) are, by design, one and the same: Our obedience to the Lord’s commands are revealed through our lives as we, by faith, receive God’s gift of eternal life (Having Life), join together to do life as a church family (Doing Life) and then continue in the process of spiritual growth and maturity as faithful witnesses of Christ (Sharing Life).  Through our outreach many more people will come to know Jesus Christ.

Having Life (eternal life)

Doing Life (church life)

Sharing Life (missional life)

Doing Life Together God’s Way – The ongoing ministry of church life is the process of a committed group of believers who are working together to serve God and who do God’s work God’s way.

These are the seven essentials for church life at Mountain View.  As we live out God’s purpose we focus on these key elements in the process of bringing glory to God (1 Cor. 10:31).

  1. We Worship: Adoration of God (John 4:24, Col. 3:16, Ep. 5:18-19)
  2. We Instruct: A deepening knowledge of God (Acts 5:42, 1 Tim. 4:13, 2 Tim. 4:2)
  3. We Pray: Communicating with God (Luke 18:1, Eph. 6:18, Col. 4:2)
  4. We Fellowship: Meaningful relationships with others (Acts 2:42, Col. 3:12-15, 1 John 1:3)
  5. We Serve: Opportunities to compassionately serve others (Gal. 5:13, Heb. 6:10, 10:24)
  6. We Equip: Identifying and implementing spiritual gifts (Rom. 12:4-6, Eph. 4:11-12, 1 Peter 4:10)
