Our Story

Mountain Bible Church’s humble beginnings resulted from a few couple’s desire to have something different. They wanted to study God’s Word. They began with meetings in the park, then in each other’s homes. As the group grew, they rented space in the schools, first Payson Elementary then the High School. The friendship, acceptance and caring of the people was contagious. Love for the Lord and each other were marks of this growing church. As it grew rapidly, the search was on for a building or land.


The land the church is now located on was purchased in three parcels. As plans to build the worship center were made, the congregation walked and prayed around the property and the building site, dedicating it to the Lord and praying for wisdom, safety of workers and God’s will as they went forward.


We are filled with gratitude for the visionaries who started Mountain Bible Church in 1989. Our desire is to continue with humility and trust in our Lord’s guidance following the example of those who started this church in the park.
