Our mission at Mt. Carmel is to declare the glory of God and to come alongside believers to equip and encourage them to be lifelong followers of Christ. We use this three word mission statment to help define this. Discover. Disciple. Deploy. Discover The chief end of man is to know God, and enjoy Him forever. Like the man described in the parable of the Hidden Treasure (Matt. 13:44), who upon discovering the glory of God, sold all that he had in order to obtain it. As a church we desire to lead others into discovering this same treasure. To find the joy of knowing God and enjoying Him forever. Disciple Faith in Jesus is the only way by which one comes to walk with God. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6). We strive to equip and encourage others to grow into the fullness of our Lord. We are deeply convicted that we need each other to live out the faith into which we are called. Deploy The greatest need the world has is God. We believe that missions exist because worship doesn’t. We believe God created the church for the mission. We are the embassy of God here on earth. We know that God is reconciling the world to Himself through the worship and work of His church(2 Cor. 5:19).We seek to see every member engaged in the spreading of the gospel of the glory of Christ.
