Mission Statement

Because we owe our existence as redeemed individuals and as a church body to the death, burial, resurrection and return of our Lord Jesus Christ, we pledge ourselves anew to spread this good news that all who trust the Lord Jesus may also be redeemed.

We shall continually remind our members, visitors, friends and families that “The Mission of the Church is Missions”, that our first and primary joyful responsibility as a church is to carry out the great commission of our Lord Jesus to “Go into all the World (beginning in Teays Valley) and preach the Gospel”.

The church body shall be fully informed as to the goals, accomplishments and distribution of funds used for fulfilling our missionary responsibilities.

As members of Mount Vernon Baptist Church body of believers, we pledge our energies, education, resources, and facilities to carry out our Lord’s command.
