ABOUT US

What We Believe

At Mountain View, our foundation is the Word of God and is nourished by God's bountiful grace, growing by the leadership of the Holy Spirit. Let us enter God's house with reverence, peace and unity to worship, and praise Him in spirit and truth that we might be useful and obedient servants of the Lord.

God

We believe that there is one God who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

 

Jesus

We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, was wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, died in our place as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, arose bodily from the grave, and ascended into Heaven. We believe that Jesus Christ is the only way to God for man's salvation.

 

Holy Spirit

We believe that God the Holy Spirit is active in convincing unbelievers of their need for salvation, and is the Comforter and Guide Who lives in every believer.

 

Bible

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God without any error, the sole authority for life and faith.

 

Salvation

We believe that salvation is a gift received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Assurance

We believe that every person who is truly saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Eternity

We believe that those persons who die in their sins without Christ spend eternity in Hell and those persons who die with their sins forgiven through Christ spend eternity in Heaven.

 

Baptism

We believe that water baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Christ and is by immersion after salvation.

 

Church

We believe that the church is a local body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head.

 

Prayer

We believe that each believer has direct access to God through the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Great Commission

We believe in the Great Commission as expressed by the Lord Jesus Christ in Matthew 28:19-20 to teach all nations and baptize in His name, and also Acts 1:8, to preach the Gospel both at home and to the uttermost parts of the earth.

 

Government

We believe in separation of church and state, but not in separation of God and government. Christians are salt and light in society.

Christ's Return

We believe that Jesus Christ will literally return to earth.
