MOUNTAIN PARK

who we are



  • MISSION


    Our mission here at Mountain Park is to invite the distracted and disinterested to realize their role in God's story. To put that simply, every role matters.

    As we work together towards realizing the role God has for us, we want everyone to make a memory, make a friend and go make a difference.

BELIEFS

  • About God
  • About God the Son
  • About God the Spirit
  • About the Bible
  • About Humanity
  • About Sin and Salvation
  • About the Church
  • About Faith & Practice
  • ABOUT GOD

    We believe there is only one God, who is the Creator and Ruler of all and who exists eternally as a Trinity of three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Each member of the Trinity is fully God, yet each is personally distinct from the other.

    Genesis 1, Jeremiah 1:9, Matthew 5:18, John 1:1-14, II Timothy 3:16

  • About God the Son

    We believe Jesus Christ (second person of the Trinity) was crucified and died on the cross, was resurrected from the dead and ascended to heaven. Someday he will return to earth to conclude history and fulfill God’s plan.

    John 1:1-18, Philippians 2:7-8, Romans 1:4,3:23-26

  • About God the Spirit

    We believe the Holy Spirit (third person of the Trinity) comes to live within a person once they cross the line of faith. He gives us power to live as God wants us to live, and gives us spiritual gifts to serve the church and change the world.

    Ephesians 1:13-14, Colossians 1:14, John 1:12, II Corinthians 5:17, John 10:10b, 11:25-26, 17:3, Acts 1:8

  • About the Bible

    We believe the Bible (both Old and New Testaments) is the Word of God, written by men who were inspired by the Holy Spirit to write down what God wanted to communicate to us.

    Deuteronomy 4:35, 32:29, Isaiah 45:14, 46:9, Exodus 20:3, 2 Timothy 3:16-17

  • About Humanity

    We believe men and women were created by God to live in relationship with him. Yet, the first two humans, Adam and Eve, chose to rebel against God bringing sin into the world. Sin spread like a virus to all humans, separating us from God.

    II Corinthians 6:19, Galatians 5:22 -23, Ephesians 5:18

  • About Sin and Salvation

    We believe Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay for our sins. It is only through faith in Jesus Christ, not by being a good person or doing good deeds, that a person can be restored to a right relationship with God.

    John 3:16-18, 1 Corinthians 1:2, 12:12-13, Acts 2:1 & 42, Colossians 1:18, 1 Thessalonians 5:13-17, Hebrews 12:23

  • About the Church

    We believe the church is God’s plan to mobilize Christ-followers to radically change the world for God. All Christ-followers are members of the “church” in a universal sense and we live out that connection in the local church. Jesus is the head of the church - there are no other candidates. Every local church should do its part to represent Jesus in the context and community it is located. Those in a local church belong to one another and take care of one another, and use their time, talents and treasures to serve the church and the world.

    Ephesians 1:22-23, 4:15-16, Colossians 1:17-18; Romans 12:4-8; Hebrews 10:23-25; Matthew 28:18-20

  • About Faith & Practice

    We rely on the Bible as the foundation for all matters of faith and practice. MPC cannot bind the conscience of individual members in areas where the Bible is silent. Rather, each believer is to be led in these areas by the Lord, to whom he or she alone is ultimately responsible. By adhering to God's Word and seeking God, we can best observe his greatest commandments, which are to love him and love others.

    Romans 12:2 & 14, 1 Corinthians 8-9, 10:23-11:1, Proverbs 3:5-6; Mark 12:29-31; Romans 12:2; Deuteronomy 6:5

Common questions

Part of being a safe place means we are okay with questions. Asking questions is part of who we are. Below is a list of common questions we’ve received. If you have a question that you don’t see here, contact us and we will answer as best we can.

  • What can you expect on a Sunday morning?
    When you walk though the doors, you will experience a positive, upbeat environment your entire family will be comfortable in.

    If you have children ages birth - preschool, you will find Basecamp on the first floor. Summit, for Kindergarten through 3rd graders, and Altitude 45, for 4th and 5th graders, meet on the 2nd floor of our children's area, at the top of the main staircase. Middle school and High School students meet in our Student Union area, to the right of the main auditorium.

    Adults, when you come to a worship service, you will experience great music, a biblically based message and some fun. We believe there is a high value in adding in elements of fun to a Sunday experience. We take Jesus seriously, but not ourselves.

    If you have any questions about Mountain Park, please come see us at the Information desk in the middle of the lobby. We would love to meet you, give you a gift and answer any questions you may have.
  • What is Mountain Park doing in the community?
    It is important to us that we are not only a place for our members, but a church that serves the community in which we reside.

    5-days a week we offer free yoga and fitness classes to anyone who would like to attend. Find the schedules here.

    We also follow Jesus' command in Matthew 25:40, calling us to take care of the "least of these brother and sisters." We partner with many local organizations such as Family Promise, Feed My Starving Children and Hope for the Homeless. Click for more info.
  • What denomination is Mountain Park?
    Mountain Park is part of the Church of God movement with headquarters in Anderson, IN. We consider our affiliation with the Church of God the best of both worlds. On one hand, we are part of something bigger than ourselves - we are part of the larger Church. On the other hand, we are a self-governing church - free to direct vision and style according to the leading of the Holy Spirit.
  • How do I become a member?
    Do you give to, serve with or pray for Mountain Park? If yes, then you are a member.
  • Does Mountain Park allow women to participate in leadership & teaching roles?
    Yes. Women may participate fully in the leading and teaching of our church.
  • What kind of activities do you have available for kids?
    Our Children’s Ministry offers age-appropriate programs for children ages birth-5th grade. You can learn more about our Children’s Ministry here.
  • How do I volunteer?
    If you’re ready to realize your role and start volunteering at Mountain Park, check out our Outreach page. You’ll find many opportunities to volunteer and serve in a wide range of areas within the church, the city and the world.
