Our third essential core value is expressed through the term labor. We believe the local church is the agency by which His great gospel is carried to a wanting world. That gospel is best experienced, but not limited to, evangelism and missions.
Jesus expressed this in Mark 10:45 when he said, "For the Son of man came not to be served but to serve and give..." A parallel thought is expressed in Matthew 9:37-38.
Every believer, every Christian has been called and gifted to serve Christ through some kind of service. Though service may start with simple tasks within the four walls of the church, it eventually overflows into ministries across the street and around the world.
The local church should and can be a world missions agency.
Opportunities to serveWe have plenty of opportunities for members to serve here at Mountain View. They can be greeters, work with children, work with youth, lead in worship, teach small groups, and help with maintenance of the grounds.
Currently, we are also involved with several new church starts and an ongoing endeavor outside of Lima, Peru.
If you'd like more information on any of the above, contact us!
We believe that God's call on Mountain View Baptist Church to be a biblically centered church that Loves God, Links Together, and Labors Well.
