Mission, Vision, & Beliefs
Our Mission
The mission of the body of believers known as First Baptist Church of Mount Vernon is actively living in obedience to the Biblical mandates of our Lord Jesus Christ in Matthew 28:19, 20 (the Great Commission) and Acts 1:8.
Our Vision
The vision at First Baptist Church of Mount Vernon is a continual committment to:
  •  Growing in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ through worship and fellowship; through the teaching of the inerrant, infallible Holy Word of God; through discipleship and disciple-making; and through equipping members for the work of ministry.  (Ezra 7:10; Romans 12:1, 2; 2 Timothy 2:15, 4:5)

  •  Proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the preaching of God's Holy Word; and through local, state, national, and worldwide outreach and mission efforts. (Matthew 28:19, 20; Acts 1:8)

  • ​ To be a living testimony of God's love to all persons in word and deed. (Mark 12:28 - 31; 1 John 3:11)

  •  To honor and glorify the Lord Jesus Christ in our personal lives, in all the ministries of the church, and to be faithful stewards of God's provisions and blessings He has entrusted to us. (Deuteronomy 6:4 - 6; Matthew 5:16; Romans 15:6; 1 Corinthians 10:31; 1 Peter 4:10)
