Mountainside Bible Fellowship

Mountainside Bible Fellowship is a Baptist church serving our Lord in the heart of Vermont by conforming our lives and teaching to the revelation of the Scriptures alone. As a local church we recognize no outside authority than our Lord Jesus Christ, the head of the universal and local church.

We are affiliated with the Green Mountain Baptist Association, The Baptist Convention of New England and we are listed with the Founders movement in the Southern Baptist Convention.

We stress the sufficiency and completeness of the Bible as "the only sufficient, certain, and infallible rule of all saving knowledge, faith, and obedience." A Confession we align with is The 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith.

Our focus is on the doctrines and teaching found in the Bible and how scripture alone presents the solutions in every category of life. Everyone is welcome to our worship services and Bible studies.

We provide the traditional style worship service for which New England has come to be known including Hymn singing , prayer and a weekly message. This is the simple and direct worship found and described in the Bible itself. The Word of God establishes the substance and structure of our worship service. We recognize that the entire Bible, both the Old Testament and New Testament, points to Christ as God. The gospel message teaches us that God is reconciling all things to Himself through the person and work of His Son, Jesus Christ. We are never finished learning and finding deeper truths from the Bible. The more we learn and study , the greater our appreciation for the work God has done and is doing.

Here is our schedule of studies and worship services:

Sunday : Worship service: 10:30AM and 4:30 PM.

Our sincere desire is to serve God and His people by providing clear and insightful Biblical knowledge in our preaching and teaching to our children and adults and any who would visit our place of worship.
