Every week we open God's Word to gain Biblical insight on how to encounter Jesus, share the Gospel, and face the challenges of daily life. Our focus is a literal interpretation of Scripture brought into the relevancy of our culture. Mountainview Church is a member of the Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist Churches (FEB). www.Mountainview.church

Most of us could quite readily explain certain attributes of God. We could all say God is loving, God is just, or God is faithful but those only begin to explain how God is, not who he is. The doctrine of the Trinity is one of the most important pillars of Christianity as it takes who God reveals himself to be in scripture and makes it clear to tho…
 
As January comes to a close, the bills have started to roll in. Families are suddenly aware of their holiday spending; some are experiencing a little regret. The gifts, parties, and trips have now become expensive memories. January is when many people make renewed commitments that, "This year, we'll save more money!" The problem is, although saving…
 
There’s a new year’s trend that has become increasingly prevalent over the past decade. As people embrace the “New Year, New You” mentality, getting a new job (or just quitting their current job) has become the easiest way to get that fresh-start feeling. The quitter convinces themselves that a new job will fulfill all their hopes and dreams, but i…
 
We’re halfway through January. How are those New Year’s resolutions going? If you’ve already quit, you’re not alone. Research shows that only “9%” of the population “successfully keep their New Year’s resolutions”. (InsideOutMastery.com/New-Years-Resolution-Statistics) Why is that? Why are we so prone to quit? Perhaps, it's because our resolutions …
 
Have you heard the phrase, “count your blessings”? Counting our blessings is a positive thing to do; acknowledging how God has blessed us and finding contentment. But it kind of stops there. What if we made a slight shift to that popular phrase? What if we shared our blessings instead of just counting them? How much more impact would it have? Not j…
 
There are dozens of mileage programs and consumer clubs, all trying to one-up each other for your membership. Often with the tagline, “Exclusively for you!” Clubs are all about you. As a member, you obtain exclusive deals and discounts, or rights and privileges. Even in the charitable sector, as a member, it’s about your member dues and what they g…
 
Christmas is the beginning of a journey, that has the potential to transform your life. Christmas is a journey that leads to Good News. “And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” (Lk. 2:1…
 
700 years before Jesus was born, a man named Isaiah wrote that He would be called the "Prince of Peace." It's a bold statement! Then, approximately 2000 years ago, Jesus was born. This week, we celebrate the Advent of Peace. We're focussing on the arrival of the promised peace that was to be brought about with the birth of Jesus. However, when we l…
 
Think of a time in your life when you were overflowing with joy. For many people, it's at the birth of a child. That's definitely the case for me. Joy overflowed at the birth of each of my three sons. Each time I heard that first small cry, I was a mess! The birth of a child is such a roller-coaster of emotions, moving almost immediately from the a…
 
People are missing something. There is an emptiness inside us that we just can't seem to fill no matter how hard we try. We search and search but can never seem to find the answer. We are incomplete. Many look to things like careers, relationships or even themselves to fill the void inside; to fulfill hope. Others simply give up and stop looking. O…
 
In a culture of affluence, gifts seem to pop up everywhere. As Christmas approaches, retailers might pitch a "free gift with purchase" to increase spending. You might be the recipient of a last-minute Christmas gift or a white elephant gift at your work Christmas party. Those Rudolf reindeer slippers were exactly what you wanted! Right!?!? We shoul…
 
Do you reflect the light of Jesus to the world around you? Jesus instructs us to shine our light before others and two ways we can do that are through evangelism and outreach. Outreach can be as simple as reaching out and helping a person or group of people in need, or sharing what we’ve been blessed to have enough of with those who don’t have enou…
 
Greetings Mountainview Church, Do you ever pause and just consider how hard it is to be a Christian? Are there times in your life when you just don’t feel like you have the time or energy to follow Jesus? Do you struggle with making the Gospel the central feature of your life? Well, I have some good news – everybody does! The truth is, a life of si…
 
Freedom gives us a choice on who or what we serve. When our eyes are fixed on ourselves, we often make self-serving choices. These choices often lead to a type of bondage. We become slaves to our own desires and behaviours. We become slaves to sin. However, when our eyes are fixed on God, we make choices to be in service to something greater than o…
 
We have a Heavenly Father who loves us. We are His children; He takes care of us and knows what’s best for us. We respond in love. Out of our love for God, we take time to celebrate Him! We choose to serve Him and express our appreciation through worship. In fact, every Sunday, we have an opportunity to celebrate. We may not always feel like it, bu…
 
What do you do when you're all alone? What do you spend time doing when you're all by yourself? When God, who sees everything, looks down at you in secret, what does He see? What are you doing in those moments? Do you acknowledge that He's there? Do you believe that He's watching? Do you believe that He cares? These questions aren't stemming from a…
 
Our habits often tell a story of who we are, more than what we do. If I habitually consume alcohol, I'm on my way to becoming an alcoholic. If I habitually eat carbs and sugars, I'm on my way to becoming obese, and I might be a glutton. If I habitually stream video games, movies, or social media, I'm on my way to becoming lazy and lonely, and at ri…
 
Thanksgiving is a wonderful time when many of us take a moment to celebrate family, friendship and good food. It’s a time to count our blessings and enjoy what we have. This is great, and we should all appreciate these blessings in our lives but do we ever really consider the God that provides all good things? We thank God for what he has given us …
 
This is the second annual national day for Truth and Reconciliation in Canada. Depending on your background, you may be deeply, personally and profoundly impacted by the legacy of residential schools in Canada's history. For others, you may come to this day and simply not be able to relate to the experiences of residential school survivors, familie…
 
According to Psychology Today, self-control is "the ability to manage one's impulses, emotions, and behaviors to achieve long-term goals". But where does this ability come from? What motivates this ability to control one's self? Consider the multi-billion dollar self-help industry. So much of it centred around controlling, managing and maintaining …
 
You may not know this, but there's a huge divide between the word gentleness in our modern English language, and the word gentleness found in ancient language, including in Biblical literature. To be gentle is not a matter of simply being kind, tender, or mild-mannered. There is a deeper level to gentleness; one that requires action as well as temp…
 
When was the last time you heard someone talk about faith? Over the past few years, the word faith seems to be connected with negative statements. We hear people voicing their lack of faith in government, institutions, or the church. Some proclaim, “I’ve lost faith in society!” or even, “I’ve lost faith in humanity!” These statements shouldn’t surp…
 
Hello, how are you? How are you doing? Was your reply, "I'm good"? Or perhaps you simply said, "Good." Why did you automatically reply that way? Are you really good? And if you are good, what does it mean to be in a state of goodness? Maybe the deeper questions are, who taught us to do to reply that way, and where did that little greeting come from…
 
Kindness is easily shown to friends and family members, or perhaps coworkers and neighbours whom we get along with. We might show kindness for strangers to be polite. We might even show kindness to an enemy, to keep them at bay or avoid a conflict. What’s our motivation of those acts of kindness? To often, kindness is shown if we feel like showing …
 
What does it mean to live a life marked by peace? If you're searching for peace, where would you go to find it? Today we'll be looking at how the Spirit of God cultivates peace in the hearts of His people, while we also try to identify and expose some wrong ideas we might have about the nature of peace. #Peace #Cultivate #HolySpirit #Fruit #Scriptu…
 
Today we look at Patience. Not just the willing to waiting in line kind of patience but a deeper more loving kind of patience. Patience with people. This is another fruit of the Spirit and with Gods help we can grow into deeply patient, loving, and humble people who will reflect Christ’s light in a dark world. #Patience #People #Spirit #God #Lord #…

To “Cultivate” means preparing the ground and soil for planting. It also means the process of planting, raising and growing the plants, and caring for them along the way. In the end, if we cultivate well, fruit is produced. We can’t simply snap my fingers for fruit to appear. We have to do the hard work of cultivating first. Did you know our hearts…
 
We are not the first to face challenges. Many churches throughout history have faced challenges, and God has always provided direction. In fact, God has been directing his people for millennia! Consider the People of Israel, crossing a raging Jordan River, as they made their move into the Promised Land. As we enter our final week of our “Leaving th…
 
It's been two years. We have loads of evidence and information about infection (and reinfection for that matter). But there's a residual health crisis that lingers. It's a mental health battle stemming from fear and anxiety, and we have to break free. Although the future may be challenging, we have to make a choice to lean into God, be strong and c…
 
Welcome to week two of our series, “Leaving the Wilderness” where we’re studying the Israelites wilderness journey and the lessons they learned, as a parallel for our journey through the wilderness over the past two years. As a reminder, our goals for this series are to… - Acknowledge the pain of the past two years. - Allow God to heal our wounds. …
 
This week, we’re starting a new series titled “Leaving the Wilderness” studying the Israelites exit from the wilderness, the hard lessons they learned as a parallel to lessons we can learn, leaving our wilderness experience. This is an important moment for our church and for you. Over the next month we will acknowledge the pain of the past two year…

Happy Father’s Day! Join us this week as we delve into some of the responsibilities that God has set before all the dads out there. We will look at examples in scripture that highlight four of the many tasks dads have in the raising of children and also touch on what today’s dads face on the job. Children are a blessing from God and dads have a hug…
 
Many of us read Scripture and pray, and even build in time for reflection. But how often to we embrace extended silence for God to speak? We might be missing a deeper level of spiritual encounter with the Holy Spirit. God’s voice speaking to our hearts and minds within the silence. And this deeper encounter is available to everyone…even you! This S…
 
"Who’s your hero? Who do you look up to and admire? This week’s Hero of Faith (from Hebrews 11) is a man by the name of David. David's faith and courage consistently pointed people to the One True God. And David's life and legacy points us to the Son of God, Jesus Christ." #Hero #Heroes #HeroOfFaith #FaithHeroes #Hebrews #Hebrews11 #David #Jesus #L…
 
"Have you ever been rejected or wrongly mistreated? How does it feel? It stings doesn't it? It hurts! It wounds us and we experience anger, frustration, and sorrow. If not dealt with, that wound can fester into bitterness, and that bitterness can grow into a grudge. As we continue in our Heroes of Faith series, we come to a man by the name of Jepht…
 
Many temptations begin with a want. We see something or someone that looks attractive and enticing. That want, if we let it linger unchecked, can grow into lust; lust for status, lust for power, or lust for pleasure. If we don’t stop this progression, our lustful desires will become lustful decisions, leading to a loss of legacy. As we continue our…
 
You’re at a crossroads in life. You're facing a decision to make, a conversation to have, a direction to take. Maybe, it's been initiated by the call of God. Internally, what happens next? Most of us go looking for affirmation and advice. In that moment, who will we seek out to join us at the crossroads? This Sunday, we'll study the Hero of Faith, …
 
Moms! They are so important and don’t get nearly enough credit for the efforts they give in carrying a child and then raising that child. Our Western culture sets aside one day a year to celebrate them but they deserve more. They deserve to be recognized every day because they are giving of themselves every day and often their efforts go unnoticed.…
 
God calls people to live difficult lived, there is no way around it. A life of faith entails self-sacrifice. It entails sharing the Gospel with people who often reject it and you as a messenger. We are called to live lives that honor God, despite the negative effects that may have on our reputation. Let's face it, being actively Christian and being…
 
We live in a fallen world. We are surrounded by people struggling just to get by in a world that beats them down and just takes. We are those people. The world is full of false hopes and idols that make big promises but do nothing to fill the empty void in our hearts. We all grasp at these but there is only one hope that will deliver and that is th…
 
We invite you to join in with us in celebration of Jesus' resurrection! It is a time where we gather to proclaim that Jesus is alive, and acknowledge that His victory over sin and death is not just a nice story, but a historic event! For nearly two thousand years, Christians have been committing their lives to Jesus and making incredible sacrifices…
 
We invite you this Good Friday to come examine the death of Jesus as we provide some reasons and explore why more people do not follow Jesus. #Crucifixion #FollowJesus #GoodFriday #Jesus #Christ #JesusChrist #Life #Heaven #God #Church #Christianity #Gospel #Forgiveness #Lord #Heaven #Faith #Bible Mountainview Church carries the necessary Christian …
 
Do you know what Palm Sunday is? If you don’t, you aren’t alone. It is a part of what is known as Holy Week but receives less focus than Good Friday and Easter Sunday. It is the day that commemorates Jesus entry into Jerusalem which would begin the week when he would fulfill his purpose on earth. The people of Jerusalem were excited their Messiah h…
 
What comes to mind when you think of the Bible? What would you say the purpose of the Bible is? How do your answers to these questions affect how you actually read the Bible? First and foremost, the Bible exists to reveal God and His glory to us! And God reveals this to us by telling us an incredible story. A true story of how He has worked in the …
 
Gods calls and the faithful answer. This week we dive into the life of Moses and see where he came from and where God would call him to his purpose. Like a lot of us, he needed a little push in the right direction but when he accepted his purpose God used him in a powerful way and a nation was delivered from bondage. #Jesus #Bible #God #Hebrews #He…
 
We all know what it's like to have our plans derailed. One of the biggest challenges we face is planning our next steps in life, only to find out that those plans simply won't work out. Whether they are plans for work, relationships, where we'll live or whether or not we'll purchase a home, it's really challenging to find out that they aren't going…
 
We like to think that we have life handled and under control. Maybe not all the time, but generally speaking we think our way of doing things is the best way. We want to be the masters of our own domain and we definitely don’t like the idea of anyone else that we need to answer to. Even when that someone else is God. This week we look at Jacob. A m…
 
Everyone knows what it's like to have family drama! Whether we mean to or not, sometimes we just don't get along. Sometimes we do things we shouldn't on purpose, but more often than not, we're more focused on what we want and need than on what others want and need. Often when we hurt someone we love, it's not because we meant to, but simply because…
