WHO WE ARE
Our church includes people from all walks of life
Mountain Vista Baptist Church was founded in 2018 by First Baptist Church (1954) and Capital Baptist Church (1978) following God’s direction to better glorify Him and build His Kingdom as a united body. The merge of these two bodies was commemorated on July 27th, 2018! We desire to reach out to people from all backgrounds because the Gospel of Jesus Christ is GOOD NEWS for all. We are a warm fellowship in Carson City, NV. We preach and teach the whole counsel of God. We love God, and we love people. We believe the Bible from cover to cover. We are imperfect yet striving to be more like Christ each day!
We are a Southern Baptist Church (SBC)
We link our arms and hearts with other Baptists (and like-minded Christians) here in Northern Nevada and around the world in order to reach more people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our preaching is mostly expositional, and typically through books of the Bible.
Mountain Vista offers opportunities for worship and ministry. We have ministries for people of all ages, from infants through adults. We’d love to get to know you and have the privilege of sharing Christ’s love with you! Join us this Sunday…come treasure God with us!
The Statement of Faith of Mountain Vista is The Baptist Faith and Message (2000), which was adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention on June 14, 2000. It can be read in full at www.sbc.net, including scriptural support, or a hard copy can be obtained in the church office. A summary of The Baptist Faith and Message (2000), is as follows:
