Welcome to Mt. Pleasant Church of God
Covid Update: As of Sunday, October 24, masks are optional at MPC.
3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. Philippians 2: 3-4
The Vision of Mt. Pleasant Church is to:
Love, Learn and Live like Jesus.
Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!” (Matthew 4: 19, NLT)
Jesus invited his disciples to follow Him which meant to love Him…and they did this by saying yes to His invitation and by their faithfulness/commitment to Him. Jesus asked His disciples to learn from Him…and they did through all His teachings–The Word of God. Jesus told His disciples to make more disciples…and they did by sharing the Gospel/Good News with the world.
We believe that having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ empowers all of us to better serve our families, community, and the world.
For more information please contact Pastor Bruce Applegate or stop by and visit one of our worship services at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday Mornings. God bless!
