Mission and Vision
First Mt. Olive Baptist Church Purpose and Mission
To be a Spiritual sanctuary where the hurting, the depressed, the frustrated, the lonely, and the confused can find love, acceptance, help, hope, forgiveness, guidance, and encouragement through the authentic demonstration and continual practice of the love of Christ. (see Isaiah 61:1-3)
To increase our understanding of Christ-like love and strengthen our relationship with Him through on-going study, personal and corporate prayers, individual and collective worship, daily praise and thanksgiving, spending time in His presence, and proactively seeking His guidance for our activities both as a single body and in our individual lives, recognizing that our outreach can only be as strong as his foundation allows.
The ministries of First Mt. Olive Baptist have the ultimate common purpose of bringing souls closer to Christ through teaching, preaching, testimony, and acts of love. These acts-as guided by, and enacted with the help of the Holy Spirit-will result in the spiritual development of disciples as purposed by Jesus in His Great Commission.
A spiritually strong unified household of Faith and Love continuously growing in individual relationships with the Lord and in strong genuine compassion for one another, while reaching out to our community and beyond to share the love Jesus Christ and fulfill His Great Commission.
