Our mission at Mount Vernon is to worship God…
First and foremost, our purpose is to glorify God in all that we do. As we assemble on Sunday mornings to sing to Him and hear from His Word, as we support each other in small group settings, as we learn through various educational opportunities, as we support missionaries both local and abroad, and at all times in between, we recognize that the Lord is the provider and sustainer, and all glory and honor belongs to Him.

…through equipping the saints…
The Great Commission begins with the phrase “making disciples of all nations”. While leading people to Christ is certainly a goal we strive for, salvation is just the beginning of a new life. Mount Vernon offers members and guests alike a wide variety of opportunities to grow in faith and knowledge of God. Through our active ministries for children, youth, college and career, adult, and seniors, there is a place for everyone to become better equipped to serve the Lord, not as a requirement for salvation, but in response to the love and grace He has shown us.

…encouraging the church…
We are people from all walks of life and backgrounds, but we all find common ground in Jesus. From single mothers to widows, from grade school to retirement, from Asia to South America, and everywhere in-between, we come together to glorify God and encourage one another. Small groups provide people opportunities to connect with one another to share in the daily and weekly victories and struggles. The staff and deacons are committed to praying for and ministering to the needs of the church body. We also support several ministries devoted to strengthening and supporting the church body, so that we may grow closer to God and one another.

…and evangelizing the world.
Mount Vernon is committed to reaching the world for Christ, not just on a local scale, but nationally and globally. Through participation in the Southern Baptist cooperative program, involvement with the North American Mission Board, relationships with specific mission organizations like Alpha International Ministries and Emmanuel Ministries, and commitment to organizing and sending out short-term mission groups from within our own body, we are determined to fulfill the Great Commission.
