Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior and the believer's death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus. Here at Mt. Olive, we baptize on the First Sunday of each month during our 11:30 a.m. service. Contact the Church Office for more details.
What should I wear?
Mt. Olive's focus is NOT on what you wear, but on you building a relationship with God. We enjoy a relaxed atmosphere of worship, and hope that you will feel comfortable coming to worship just as you are. You’ll see a wide variety of clothing styles – from suits and dresses to polos and khakis to jeans and t-shirts. The most important thing is to come dressed in a way that you feel comfortable to worship God. Our dress code is "casual, but godly."
What time should I arrive?
Service Starts promptly at 9:30 a.m. Plan to arrive at least 10 minutes before service starts. When you enter, you will be welcomed by one of our greeters. If you are a first-time guest, please be sure to mention this to our greeters, so we can give you a gift bag and a Mt. Olive Welcome.
