ABOUT THE BIBLE:
“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God…” (II Timothy 3:16f). The Bible is the standard by which our lives are guided (Psalm 119:105). Through the Scriptures, wisdom and salvation can be found (II Timothy 3:14-15).
ABOUT SPIRITUAL GROWTH:
Studying the Scriptures is continually encouraged (II Timothy 2:15). God expects all to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ” (II Peter 3:18). The elders at Mt. Leo believe in the importance of spiritual growth and provide many opportunities for learning.
Our children have Bible classes every Sunday morning and Wednesday evening. Also, every Sunday at 10:45, our children learn a short lesson before worship in our Pew Packer sessions. Their teachers are eager to help them learn the Scriptures.
Our adults have equal opportunities to learn, too! Every Sunday and Wednesday, there are a variety of classes offered for different levels of growth. Several extra opportunities are extended for spiritual growth throughout the year.
Jesus taught that those who worship God, “must worship in spirit and in truth” (John 4:23-24). At Mt. Leo, we strive to worship God in this acceptable manner (Hebrews 12:28). We worship with engaged hearts and according to the teachings of the Scriptures (I Corinthians 14:15; John 17:17).
Every Lord’s Day, you will observe:
1) Our voices blending together in acapella singing (Ephesians 5:19).
2) Our heads bowed to communicate to God in prayer (Philippians 4:6).
3) Our Bibles open to search the Scriptures through the preaching of God’s Word (Acts 17:11).
4) Our minds reflecting back to the death of Christ on the Cross as we partake of the Lord’s Supper (Matthew 26:26-28).
5) Our hearts extended to give back to the LORD as we give as we’ve been prospered (I Corinthians 9:6-7).
Jesus said, “the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many” (Matthew 20:28). At Mt. Leo, we strive to imitate Christ in every way, but especially service.
Throughout the year, we service our community through a variety of efforts all for the glory of God. Jesus also taught, “They will know you are My disciples if you have love one for another” (John 14:34-35).
The first century church spent a great deal of time with one another (Acts 2:46ff). Keeping company with our brothers and sisters helps us focus on more important matters (Hebrews 10:23-24).
At Mt. Leo, we love spending time with each other. As a spiritual family, we engage in several occasions of fellowship every year.
Once a month, discuss the works of the church and enjoy a potluck lunch with each other. These times are cherished!
Our purpose for life and worship is to bring God glory in every way (Matthew 5:16). Our hope is that every soul that we come in contact with sees God’s glory through our service.
We’re thankful you have chosen to spend some time with us. We count every visitor that comes our way an honored guest. We hope to see you again, very soon!
