I'm not a baptist; can I still attend services at Mt. Olivet?
Anyone who seeks to know more about the Lord may attend our services. You do not need to be a Baptist or even come from a Baptist background; we make it easy for anyone wanting to know more about Christ, the Bible, and church by focusing our teaching and preaching solely on the Word of God. We are a friendly congregation and all we want is for you to worship with us.
What if I have a different Bible Translation?
Mt. Olivet uses the King James Version as a standard for teaching and preaching within the church. If you have a different translation, bring it anyway. Some messages are more difficult to follow without one.
Will I have to give to the offering
The offering is a time for members of Mt. Olivet (those who call Mt. Olivet home) to give back to God for the blessings they have received from Him. If you want to give, please feel free but you will not be expected to.
