Welcome to Mt. Olive Cathedral C.M.E. Church we are called by God, as members of the local church, to share in his blessed privilege and responsibility. It is only through the effective, faithful service of our mission that we please our heavenly Father. We seek in all that we do to have some element of this stated purpose obvious to all.

Our Mission

 The church's mission in the world is to be like Christ. He was born into the world, lived in the world, and died for the world. We, too, are called to a humble, sacrificial identification with those to whom we are sent. 'Mission' includes everything the church is sent into the world to do.


Mt. Olive Cathedral C.M.E. Church exists to praise and serve Jesus Christ on earth and to glorify God. Our mission is to be a church characterized as sensitive, caring, responsive, courageous, loving, spiritually alive, warm, open, and forgiving. We are a dedicated people living our Christian beliefs.
