He created all things in heaven and on earth...everything has been created through Him and for Him. (Colossians 1:16)
Please Pray for Our Troops and Missionaries Around the World.
Our Missions Emphasis
"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
Mount Olive Baptist Church works to fulfill the great commission of teaching and making disciples in our city and community, our country and across the globe. The desire of Mount Olive is to create an atmosphere so you can hear the call and invitation of God to join Him by empowering and mobilizing you and others to rapidly respond to urgent needs around the world. We are committed to resource, train, and mobilize "missionaries" both locally and globally. Partnering with the Southern Baptist Convention, the International Mission Board, and various local agencies, we envision mobilizing our members to be concerned about missions in our community and around the world. As a member of Mount Olive, you will be challenged to grow in your intercession, involvement, and investment in missions. Our goal is for every born again believing, maturing disciple to be involved in missions. Pray now about joining those who are responding to God's call to share the Good News of Jesus in Knoxville and around the world.
