What We Believe

What We Believe

To Know Jesus Christ, and to make Him known.

As Christians, we’re supposed to be, well, humble. But we think our little community at Mount Olivet is pretty special. And we are definitely blessed. If you’re searching for a church that’s doing its best to follow Jesus, please join us Sunday morning.

We are a wonderfully diverse collection of people. Like wildflowers, the people here are unique and full of life. We’ve found a place to “put down roots” and grow together in the love of God. Just as all life depends on the sun, we look to Jesus as the source of life and the best way to understand God.

We are always looking for new ways to say old and weighty thoughts. This contemporary creed might be a good start….

We are not alone,
we live in God’s world.

We believe in God:
who has created and is creating,
who has come in Jesus,
the Word made flesh,
to reconcile and make new,
who works in us and others
by the Spirit.

We trust in God.

We are called to be the Church:
to celebrate God’s presence,
to live with respect in Creation,
to love and serve others,
to seek justice and resist evil,
to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
our judge and our hope.

In life, in death, in life beyond death,
God is with us.

We are not alone.
Thanks be to God.
