Who we are, where we come from and where we are going as a church family.
WHO WE ARE
Here's the deal, Mountain View cares about one thing more than anything else: Jesus Christ. Mountain View Baptist Church is a family of individuals who have found hope in Jesus and simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same freedom and joy. Mountain View glorifies God by building lives committed to Jesus. We are a Bible-based church affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention.
WHERE WE COME FROM
Mountain View Baptist Church was started in 1987 by a group of people from First Southern Baptist Church Tucson who wanted to plant a welcoming church on the northwest side of the city. Mountain View hosted its first gathering on October 1, 1987.
Mountain View Baptist Church glorifies God and makes disciples by building lives committed to Jesus.
Living for Jesus - Jesus is clear that our relationship with God is the single most important relationship a person can have. That relationship is more important than our friends, family and ourselves. (Luke 14:25-33).
Living by His Word - As the Word of God, the Bible shows us how to live life the way God designed it — with Him. A person that lives for Jesus models a lifestyle prescribed in all pages of the Bible.
"Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them." -John 14:21
Living for the Family - Our desire is to be a unified church that learns, grows, takes care of, looks out for, evangelizes and worships together. Each person is an important member of the "body of Christ. (2 Corinthians 12:12-27)
Living Inside Out - We believe that once a person has repented and placed their faith and trust in Christ, the Holy Spirit begins His transforming work in that person. God has commissioned and commands each Christian to spread the gospel to all the nations, and we believe that starts with every person influencing and being a light in the places where they live, work and play.
"Therefore go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
We believe our reach with the gospel is best served through local and international missions, service to our community, planting churches and equipping Jesus-followers for the work of the ministry.
We believe effective disciples of Jesus will be living by these four measures:
Have I met with God today?
Have I connected with a church member this week?
Is my next service project on the calendar?
Have I told someone about Jesus this week?
