Our Mission: LOVE, GROW, REACH

Mountain Christian Center exists to LOVE God and people, to help all believers GROW

to become more like Christ and to REACH the lost with the good news of Jesus. 


We are a church made up of many different people. We’re not all perfect, but we’ve found hope in having a relationship with Jesus Christ. Our consuming passion is to glorify God and when we gather together in Jesus name we believe His promise to be with us. Everyone is welcome at MCC as we journey together in following Jesus Christ.

When asked what the greatest commandment was, Jesus responded in this way: “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ (Matthew 22:37-39) 


At Mountain Christian Center we believe that we were put here on this earth to love God and be loved by him. We believe that the primary thing God asks of anyone who truly believes in Christ and receives his spiritual salvation is a devoted love that is expressed with one's entire being.


We also believe that Christians are required to love all people, including their enemies. Why is this so? Because God loves all people. We believe that if we love God completely and love others unselfishly then all of our attitudes and actions will end up aligning with all of the commands, instructions, guidelines and standards of God's Word.


Before ascending into heaven Jesus said this: All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. (Matthew 28:18-20)


What's a disciple? A disciple is someone who is a follower or student of someone else. Here at MCC, we are all about helping people become disciplined students and followers of Jesus who live by his commands and are continually growing in their relationship with him and growing to become more like him. 

While at the home of Zacchaeus, Jesus summed up his entire mission by saying this: 

“…the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.” (Luke 19:10)


Then, later on, Jesus gave his disciples this command:

 “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone.” (Mark 16:15)


Jesus came to seek and save those who are lost. Who are the lost? Anyone who is not following Jesus. How can they be saved? By hearing the Good News of who Jesus is and what he has done and deciding to put their faith and trust in him.


Here at Mountain Christian Center we take the command to go and preach the Good News to everyone very seriously. The truth of the matter is that there are many lost people in the world and the only way that they can be saved is through Jesus Christ. It is our goal as a church to reach the lost (here in Oakhurst and all over the world) by proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ to everyone we possibly can.
