At Mount Olive, we believe that Baptism is an outward expression of your faith in Christ as a Christian. If you have already been baptized after receiving Jesus as your Savior, you do not have to be re-baptized at Mount Olive. At MOBC, we do not accept infant baptism or any baptism that occurs before the child believes for themselves. Additionally, the Lord’s Supper will not be served to any child whose baptism precedes their belief.

Baptism Orientation is held every 1st Sunday at 9:00 a.m. in Room 107.

The Bible teaches that God has specific roles for men and women in the church. The office of minister as defined by the word of God has been exclusively assigned to the men of the Church. For this reason, the Mount Olive Baptist Church does not recognize nor ordain women preachers, pastors or ministers of any denomination. (I Timothy 2:12-15; 3:1-7; Titus 1:6-9).

Couples must complete marriage counseling with one of the staff ministers before the wedding. The marriage license must be recognized by the state and received by the minister prior to the wedding ceremony. Because the bible states that Christians are not to marry non-Christians, the Mount Olive Baptist Church does not perform inter-faith marriages (II Corinthians 6:14). Couples who were formerly married may only utilize the main sanctuary for their ceremony if both parties’ former spouse is deceased, however, other facilities are available. (Romans 7:2).

Wakes & Funerals
There are no funerals or wakes on Sunday. Wakes will begin no later than 7:00 PM and will continue to no later than 8:00 PM. Caskets are opened during wakes and at the start of the actual funeral service. After the service has begun and the family has been seated, the casket will be closed and will not be reopened. (I Corinthians
15:51-58; I Thessalonians 4:13-18).

The ministerial staff attends funerals (schedule permitting) for church members and their immediate families. The ministerial staff doesn’t attend funerals that are more than three hours (driving distance) from the church.

At the Mount Olive Baptist Church, water baptism is by immersion. Baptism is not to be regarded as a means of salvation but as evidence of obedience, identification and fellowship with the Lord. We do not baptize anyone (adult or children) until they have made a formal profession of faith.

Those who are going to be baptized must complete baptism orientation before being baptized. On the day in which you will be baptized, we ask that you bring an extra set of clothing (clothing for baptism and clothing for the remainder of the ceremony). Baptism orientation for those 12 yrs old or older is held in Room 107 at 9:00 a.m. every first Sunday (unless otherwise specified). (Matthew 3; 28:19-20; Acts 2:38, 41, 8:12, 35-38).
