MountainView Church is a growing, non-denominational church in Murphy, NC, a beautiful little town nestled in the mountains of far western North Carolina. MountainView Church exists to make everyday disciples of the Lord Jesus who are devoted to him, developed for life, and deployed to love. The word "everyday" in our mission statement is essential for understanding our purpose. For far too long, we believe many churches have failed to connect the dots between Sunday morning and Monday morning, and we believe God has called us to carry that banner. We are convinced that the gospel of Jesus Christ changes lives, and as the gospel of Jesus Christ changes our lives we believe we will experience changes in our everyday lives, our everyday relationships, and our everyday interactions with the world.

Must understand the calling of pastor as equipper. (Ephesians 4:11-12).
