We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God and inerrant in the original writings. We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three relational roles: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
God's building a Church-Matthew 16:18
By the grace of God, the church was established in 1826. In the early 1970's, Pastor Earl Potts opened the church doors and named it the Church of God. Pastor Andew McKesson became pastor upon the death of Pastor Potts. Along with the vote of the new pastor and the congreation, it was decided to change the name to Mottville Community Church which is the current name today. Without a doubt, these men of God had a vision for this community and are treasured within the heart of the church.
As pastor since 1991 and church memeber for twenty-eight years, I have see this chruch grow tremendously from fifteen to one hundred fifty people. I have seen missionaries, teachers, pastors, evangelists, prision, and nursing home ministries go forth from the congregation. In 2002, we opened the doors of the new 112' by 66' sancturary with much hope to build phase two in the near future. Phase two will consist of new classrooms, a fellowship hall and gymnasium for the youth. God tryly has blessed Mottville and has honored the prayers and vision of the church congregation.
To sum up, heartfelt prayer is to see Mottville continue to grow spiritually and gain the vision of winning lost souls to Christ.
In other words, I want it to be a soul winning station for God (Proverbs 11:30)! With the committed labor, prayer, and love of Christians, we plan to reach out to the community and spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. To God be the glory for the things He has done.
David Bell, Pastor
