Our Faith

At Mt. Vernon, we believe:

  • That Christ lived to teach men
  • That Christ died to save men
  • That Christ rose again and lives forever to help men
  •  That Christ is coming again

 We believe in the ordinances of Water Baptism and Holy Communion


I. Why We Worship

  • God desires it (St. John 4:28)
  • God requires it (Hebrews 10:25)
  •  Jesus set the example (Luke 4:16-20)

 II. The Object of our Worship

  • Receiving from God through Christ, The Holy Spirit and the Living Word
  • Kindling- One person's faith kindles another (Romans 1:11-12)
  • In Singing, Praying, Testifying and other Christian Sharing
  • In Preaching- A method given by God (Acts 13:1-3, Romans 10:13-15)
  • In Witnessing (Acts 2:41-47)

 III. Worship in our Giving

  • What do we give? A tenth of what has been earned
  • How should we give? Systematically and regularly
  • Where should we give? Our contributions are to be brought to the meeting place
  • An officer who does not tithe should not serve in that office
  1. He is robbing the God he serves (Malachi 3:8)
  2. His heart is not with God (Matthew 6:21)
