About Us

Our mission is to help people become life-long disciples of Jesus. We believe that this happens when we place ourselves in environments where we can gather together; grow in our understanding of God; and go out in service to the church, our community, and the world.

Helping people become lifelong disciples of Jesus.

Our Beliefs


A history

Mt. Gilead started with a small group of believers in a log cabin in 1835. Since then, God has used us as a ministry launching pad for over 180 years. In 1978, Mt. Gilead moved into a new building on Kitchen Road. That facility, previously known as MG2, served our needs for over 20 years and allowed us to grow to nearly 500 people in four services.

In June of 2000, we relocated and moved into phase one of our 36,000 square foot main facility, which we currently occupy, on fifty beautiful acres. At that time our plan was to use our multi-purpose room as a temporary worship center until we could construct our phase two sanctuary. A professional master plan was developed and extensive plans were made for our new sanctuary.

In 2012, the Mt. Gilead Community Center was built and furnished in Mooresville as a means of outreach to our community. Currently, the Mt. Gilead Community Center is the home of the Mooresville Boys & Girls Club.

In October of 2018, Mt. Gilead opened a new 1,200-seat Worship Center along with moving Children’s Ministry to a larger space to make more room to help people become lifelong followers of Jesus.

In October of 2021, the backside of the property was cleared to make room for a shelter house, playground, and improvements to the walking path. The campus also includes a disc golf course used by an active disc golf community in the tri-state area.

We have over 185 years of history behind us, but the best years are ahead of us.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

- John 3:16-17
