---Our Mission
 
Mt View Baptist Church exists to Know Him and Make Him Known. This is our Mission because it was the mission laid out by Jesus Himself.
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Matthew 28:18-20
 
 
 
 
---Our Blueprint
 
Just like every good building, our mission takes a plan to accomplish. We cannot just simply assume we will make disciples, we must be intentional about the process. So, we have sought out scripture to draft a BLUEPRINT for our Discipleship Process. 
 
 
You will notice the pages on this website reflect these areas. Each and every ministry we do at Mt View will fall into one of these three core areas. Check out the pages to learn more about our process of Making Disciples!
 
 
 
---Our Beliefs
 

About God

 
God is the creator and ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
 
Genesis 1:1, 26-27, 3:2; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; I Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14

About Man

 
Man was created in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character or spiritually alive. With the sin of Adam and Eve, came the curse of mankind to be spiritually dead, just as Romans 6:23 tells us. We have no hope in and of ourselves for salvation because to be saved is to become spiritually alive which can only be done through a re-birth.
 
Genesis 1:27, 3:6, 24; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:10-19, 23; Isaiah 59:1-2

About Eternity

 
People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with Him is heaven. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.
 
John 3:16, 2:25, 5:11-13; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; Matthew 1:8, 2:44-46

About Eternal Security

 
Whether you believe once saved, always saved, or that you can lose your salvation, these two thoughts collide at perseverance. The bottom line is this, only those who are truly saved will persevere and only those who persevere are truly saved. It is vital to persevere!!
 
John 10:29-30; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25, 10:10-14;
1 Peter 1:3-5; Romans 8:38-39; Romans 11:29;
Ephesians 1:13-14
 

About Salvation

 
Salvation is God’s free gift to us. He initiates a relationship with us through the convictions of our heart by the Holy Spirit. He draws us to Himself until we are at a point of surrendering our lives to Him as Lord. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and surrender to Him we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one confesses Jesus to be Lord of their life and believes in their heart that God has raised Him up from death unto life.
 
Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6,1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1; Romans 10:9

About Jesus Christ

 
Jesus Christ is eternal both past and present. He descended to earth through the virgin birth and is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as a perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on the cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
 
Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14-15; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11;
1 Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13

About the Holy Spirit

 
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of Spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift(s) when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily.
 
2 Corinthians 3:17; John 17:7-13, 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:18

About the Bible

 
The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian belief and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.
 
2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 1:13;
Psalm 119:1-5, 16, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5
