Forward in freedom capital campaign

receive . serve . grow

Dear friends in Christ, God’s chosen people here at Mountain View have been brought together by God’s work and for His purposes, serving Las Vegas for over 60 years. Our Lord has adopted us in baptism, forgiven us through His Gifts, and enables us to live each day loving and discipling others. On this mission, we are moving FORWARD IN FREEDOM with a focus on God’s words in Galatians 5:13:

For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.

This three-year ministry journey will lead us as we use our God-given freedom in three powerful ways:

FREE to receive

God’s gifts, promised in his word, and delivered through his church.

FREE to serve

in all our vocations, and in the thriving school ministry envisioned 30 years ago by our forerunners.

FREE to grow

in the Word, in faith, in our reach, and in the physical presence of
our well-loved campus.

Our invitation to you is to move Forward in THE Freedom of the Gospel! God forgives and renews us with His Gifts in worship and sends us to share the Good News. As you do this in your homes and families, we do this together through a vibrant Christian school. We go forward, not to serve ourselves but that God would form us as His disciples – so that through prayer, devotional life and love and service to our community, the Good News of Jesus would be proclaimed on campus, in our city, and beyond!

Our prayer is that you will use your freedom to join in contributing prayerfully, financially and with your individual giftedness so that ever more people would receive God’s Gifts.

For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. − Gal. 5:13

AT MOUNTAIN VIEW, we believe that God forms us into His people so that we can be sent on His mission to love and make disciples of others. Everything we do is made possible by the good work that God starts in us!
