Following Jesus. Teaching the Gospel.

Sermons (Page 3)

At Mountain Creek, we believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God by which all men will be judged. We believe the Bible demonstrates God’s love for all people and informs us how to carry on a relationship with him. At Mountain Creek, our preaching hopes to help people understand God’s word and to motivate people draw closer to him and enjoy the blessings God makes available to his people both here on earth, and in eternity.
