Loving God - Loving others

About Us

Here are some quick facts about Mt. Gilead that will help you get to know us better:
 
We are an Elder-led church.
 
At Mt. Gilead, we have adopted what we believe Scripture teaches as the Biblical model for church leadership. Our church is spiritually guided by men who have demonstrated a life of integrity and sensitivity to the leading of the Holy Spirit and God's Word (see Titus1:5-9).
 
The Elders assist the Teaching Pastor/Elder by providing spiritual leadership and guidance for our church family. They are unpaid volunteers who have families, jobs and responsibilities away from our church but are always willing to serve, answer questions and help with concerns.
 
We are a prayer-focused church.
 
We believe that prayer and keeping our eyes focused on Jesus Christ are essential ingredients to living our our lives faithfully according to God's Word.
 
John 15:5 "I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing." (ESV)
 
As a church, we place a unique emphasis on praying for the needs of one another. Each week, every member of our congregation receives the name of another individual to pray for throughout the week.
 
We are a fellowship-minded church.
 
Throughout the New Testament, you will find that fellowship and unity are two overwhelming characteristics of the early church (see Acts 2:42). At Mt. Gilead, we strive to create opportunities for God’s people to enjoy that same type of love. Small groups are an important aspect of Mt. Gilead as we seek to partner together in prayer and studying God’s Word while we fellowship together over something we all enjoy. . . FOOD!
 
We are a Gospel-driven church.
 
As a church we have a passion for seeing all peoples of all nations come to know the one true God and His Son Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior! This mission is first fulfilled right here in our community as we obediently share the Gospel, baptize new believers and disciple them to be obedient to all that Christ has commanded us to do. (Matthew 28:19-20)
