OUR STORY

On October 17, 2010, MVBC had their first gathering with 32 people at Yucaipa Elementary School. Three years later, God opened an amazing opportunity for them to purchase their own property in Calimesa. MVBC has since grown in number and depth as a church. MVBC is grateful for what the Lord has done in their past, but they believe the greatest days are ahead.

 

We invite you to consider joining us on this journey as we pursue a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ! Discover what God has for you at MVBC!

 

BELIEFS

 

Sovereign God


There is one living and true God. He is the Creator and the supreme Ruler of Heaven and earth in holiness and alone is worthy of our worship. In the unity of the Godhead, there are three persons; The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit, equal in every divine perfection and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption. Exodus 20:2-3; Revelation 4:11; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 1 John 5:7




The Son


Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God the Father and in a miraculous manner was born of the virgin Mary. He is both fully God and fully man. He took upon Himself our nature, yet without sin, and by His death and resurrection made a full substitutionary atonement for our sins. Jesus is the only way to Heaven and the only mediator between God and man. Isaiah 7:14; Luke 1:27; John 1:14




Salvation


The salvation of sinners is wholly by grace apart from works, through the death and resurrection of the perfect “Lamb of GOD,” Jesus Christ, who substituted Himself for us by taking the penalty for our sins. This satisfied the demands of the Holy God, thus justifying the repentant sinner. Furthermore, faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is the only condition of salvation.Ephesians 2:8; 1 John 4:10; Romans 3:24-27; 5:1-9; 2 Corinthians 5:21




The Holy Spirit


The Holy Spirit dwells in all believers, conforming them to the image of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit sanctifies, or sets us apart, to fulfill God purpose for our lives. The Holy Spirit comes within you when you accept Christ into your heart. 1 Corinthians 12:13; Romans 8:16-17




Scripture


The Holy Bible is inspired by God and is the product of Spirit-controlled men; therefore it is the absolute truth without any error in its content. I believe we have a faithful representation for English speaking people in the King James Version translation. We accept a literal interpretation and believe the Bible to be relevant for today as the guide for what we believe and how we live. 2 Timothy 2:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21





Sin


Man was created in innocence under the law of God, but by the voluntary transgression of Adam and Eve, they became sinners, consequently making all mankind sinners. Therefore, every man and woman born today is a depraved being and will therefore be accountable for the wages of his sin, which is death and Hell. Genesis 3:1-6; Romans 3:23; 5:12, 19




Creation


The Genesis account of creation is six, literal, twenty-four hour days, and man came by direct creation of God and not by evolution. Genesis 1-2; John 1:3; Colossians 1:16-17




Eternal Security


Because God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and eternal power of God that this security. Hebrews 5:9; John 10:27-29; Jude 24; Romans 8:38-39




​Service


The local church is a group of believers baptized by water, banded together for edification, exhortation, and evangelism as commanded by Christ in the Great Commission; preaching the Gospel to every creature. Mark 16:15, I Corinthians 12:12, Ephesians 1:22-23




End Times


Jesus Christ Himself will soon come again in the air to catch up His Church to reward their service. The unbelievers left behind will go through a period called the Tribulation, after which Christ will return to the Earth to set up His Kingdom of one thousand years of righteous rule. After this, the unbelievers of all ages will stand at the Great White Throne to be judged and cast into the Lake of Fire, separated from God forever, while the believers spend eternity in the fullness of joy in Heaven with the Lord. Matthew 24:29-42, I Thessalonians 4:16-18, Revelation 19:11-20:13





GOSPEL

A personal relationship with Jesus Christ is the most significant relationship we can have. To know Christ and to make Him known is the heartbeat of MVBC. Below are some verses that outline the way of Salvation. I trust this will be a help to you.
 

1. Realize God loves you


John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."




2. We all have sinned


Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”




3. There is a price to pay


Romans 6:23a, “For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

PASTOR NEWTON

Raised in Augusta, Georgia, Pastor William Newton received Christ as his Savior, at the age of 13, and had a desire to serve the Lord. He went to Bible college where he received his Bachelors in Pastoral Theology, Masters in Church Administration, and a Doctorate in Biblical Counseling. While attending college he met his wife, Holly. Together they served the Lord, in various ministries at their Bible college and at that time decided to serve the Lord for the rest of their lives. After college, they were married and began to serve the Lord faithfully, as a couple, in Kentucky. God has led them to pastor Mountain View Baptist Church in the beautiful city of Calimesa, California. Together, they serve the people of Riverside County, along with their daughter, Danielle. Their goal is to share the love of Christ to the lost, help those in need, and be a blessing to all who cross their path.
