Who We Are

unnamed (2)

Our hope is that all people will feel loved and welcomed at Mt. Pleasant. And once here, we pray that people will meet God and as a result of meeting God, give their lives to Jesus Christ. We want that for you. Come as you are. Check us out, but more importantly, seek the truth of God that can only be known when one knows Jesus.

While you are browsing our website, you will learn about our programs and get a glimpse of who we are, but only a glimpse. To fully understand us, come to a worship service or to a small group and feel the up-close, in-person fellowship that comes when people share time together with the Holy Spirit present. Enjoy the website, then come. We’d love to meet you and know you.

OUR MISSION & VISION

Our mission is to glorify God in making disciples to advance God’s Kingdom by:
Reclaiming souls, Restoring lives, Responding to God’s call and Rejoicing in the Lord together.

Our vision is to be a loving community of spirit filled disciples of Jesus Christ joyfully walking and ministering together in unity, using our spiritual gifts effectively and efficiently with excellence to build God’s kingdom by equipping, edifying, encouraging and empowering saints, families and communities near and far, through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.


SCRIPTURE FOR THE YEAR

5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

– 2 Peter 1:5-8
