Our Vision

“…A place where people connect with God’s power…”

Mount Gilead is a place where people make a meaningful connection with Christ to find spiritual results and learn life-changing solutions in Christ through worship, biblical teaching, intercessory prayer, and personal and family enrichment ministries. It is where God’s power is reaching people and building His church one person and one family at a time.

Our Mission

John 12: 32

Winning disciples to Christ and connecting people to His power through our Christian witness and example and Biblically-based teaching to build His church and uplift our community.

Christian Values

We believe that our Christian values must be practiced daily in order to achieve our vision and carry out the mission of Christ.  We believe that without Christ the church does not have any power to live by His principles and values.  Church ministries and activities are often influenced by certain traditions that are not biblically based, but we believe that Christ-centered values must prevail over tradition to provide effective ministry according to the teachings of Christ.  We strive to be a Christ-centered value-driven church; a value-driven church will live its faith by adopting and practicing values that define its relationship with Christ. 

The following are Christ-centered Christian values and ministries: 

  • We value our relationship with Christ and live by His principles
  • We value the preached word and the Bible and seek every opportunity to share it
  • We value worship and encourage others to do so
  • We value Mount Gilead Baptist Church, its ministries, and its strategic vision and will work to carry out its mission
  • We value Christian education
  • We value community service, social justice and equality for all
  • We value the power of witnessing Christ and sharing Him with others
  • We value the power of prayer and believe that all should have a consistent prayer life
  • We value the presence and power of the Holy Spirit  
  • We value the love ethic of Christ and living by it
  • We value and believe in the power of faith and affirm our Christian stewardship through our faith and trust in God
  • We value being benevolent and reaching out to our community
  • We value giving of our time in ministry service
  • We value Christian character and integrity

We believe and trust in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and believe that He has given us the Holy Spirit (the mind of Christ) to live by these Christian values.
