About Us

Mountain View Community Church exists to make fully devoted followers of Jesus who call on God’s power to boldly and lovingly reach our neighbors, the next generation and the nations for Christ. Our facility sits on 20 acres in Southern Frederick County, located just outside of Urbana and less than an hour North of Washington, DC.  We are a church that currently averages over 1,200 in regular worship attendance each week (nursery through adults). 

Our Core Values:

We value relationships rooted in Grace and Truth, where the humility, compassion, and love of Christ are on display in word and deed and where God's truth is not minimized.

#1 GRACE & TRUTH

We value Worship and Wellness, where everyone is growing, where one's walk with Godcomes first, where people are authentic, and where work and service are an outgrowth, not a substitute for, worship. 

#2 WORSHIP & WELLNESS

WATCH

We value being Spirit-Led, constantly seeking what God wants us to do, depending solely on Him, and not bound by policies, planning, limited perspective, or past ways of doing things.

We value being in Community with one-another, at weekend worship services, as well as in our groups and teams.

Our Beliefs:

At Mountain View Community Church, we hold to the 10-beliefs of EFCA (Evangelical Free Church in America), plus other doctrines as they are studied and published by the Elders of the church. The Evangelical Free Church of America is an association of autonomous churches united around a set of theological convictions that you can read here. 

We value God-Centered Diversity, where all people are welcome and wanted, where one's unique gifts, contributions, and ideas are valued and sought, and everyone is invited to follow Jesus.

#5 GOD-CENTERED DIVERSITY

WATCH

We value Equipping others to do the work of the ministry. 

#6  EQUIPPING

WATCH

We value Intentionality, taking the initiative in all we do, whether it is presenting the Gospel to a non-believer, discipling or shepherding a believer, or reaching out in love to someone different from us.

#7 INTENTIONALITY

WATCH

We value Accountability to God and His Word, humbly submitting to one another, as well as to our mission, vision, beliefs, values, and leaders.
