El Vista Baptist Church

Our Mission


El Vista Baptist Church desires to glorify God by winning souls to Christ at home and abroad, to bring believers to maturity through Bible Preaching and teaching, and to enlist servants who give their best to advance the cause of Jesus Christ. 

Here are some things that distinguish El Vista from other churches:
  • We use the King James Version in all our English services because of the corruptions in modern versions.
  • We use conservative hymns and Gospel songs (you might say "old-fashioned" music).
  • We believe that every service should be built upon the Bible.
  • We believe in the importance of Christian education.
  • We believe in sincere, separated, and Spirit-filled living.
  • We believe in seeking the lost at home and abroad.
  • We still have Sunday night services and prayer meetings.
These things don't make us better than anyone else, but they do help identify who we are as a congregation.

At El Vista Baptist Church, we strive to fulfill our mission through the many services, programs, and activities. Please select from the "About Us" list to obtain more information about our church ministries.
