We believe that church should change lives.

We don't have pews or bulletins, but we have a church filled with the Holy Spirit, who wants to engage and touch each person that desires it. The Mount and Bishop Brown have been anointed to change lives through the teaching of the Word and leadership by example. Here is what you can expect from your experience at The Mount.

Order of Worship

Here at The Mount we believe that worship should be free of those things that may prevent intimate encounters between the Lord and the saints. Therefore, worship includes praise and worship, giving, and preaching the word. These are the three main components of biblical worship. (Psalm 100)
