On behalf of the Mt. Vernon Missionary Baptist Church in Kansas City, Missouri, we thank you for visiting our web site. We trust you will find informative topics concerning our Church history, Church Family and Christian Living.

Feel free to click on the “Inspiration” tab on the menu bar for daily spiritual nourishment. You may enter your prayer requests and/or praise reports from the menu bar as well. We are a church who love God and strive to live according to His holy Word. If you have a desire to donate to this ministry, rest assured that all donations will be used for the glory of God.

My motto is found in the Bible. Revelation, Chapter 2 verse 10b:

“….be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.”

May the Lord forever smile upon you and keep you until the day of redemption.

Forever In Christ,
Pastor Donald W. Givens

We Believe

  1. That the Bible is God’s Word and that it does not contain any error.
  2. That Jesus Christ is the Son of God
  3. That Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, that he died on the cross and that he arose on the third day.
  4. That Jesus Christ went back to His Father in heaven and now sits on His right side.
  5. That man can only be saved from eternal damnation through grace and that it is a gift from God.
  6. That salvation can not be attained by works.
  7. That salvation only comes through acceptance that Jesus Christ died and rose and that he is the only way man can escape damnation.
  8. That one day Christ will return to gather His Church together and there we will forever be with him in glory.
