Matt Williams was born in Kennewick, Washington. At the age of four, Matt's parents were led to the Lord by a soul winner, Pastor John Paisley from Riverview Baptist Church in Pasco, WA. His family began attending Riverview Baptist Church and became extremely involved in serving the Lord through their outreach ministries.
At the age of fourteen, Bro. Williams accepted Christ as his personal Saviour. Once he graduated from Riverview Baptist School and attended one year of Bible college Bro. Williams decided to return to Pasco, WA and work and to do his "own thing". It was not until the fall of1999 that Bro. Williams surrendered to God's calling on his life and returned to Bible college.
At Golden State Baptist College, Bro. Williams met his wife, Anna, and they were married in August of 2002. In May 2003, he graduated from Golden State Baptist College. Upon graduating, Bro. Williams and his wife joined the staff of Shasta Baptist Church in Redding, CA under Pastor Mike Johnson.
While at Shasta Baptist Church, Bro. Williams served as the Youth Director, Music and Choir Director and Soul Winning Director. The Lord allowed Bro. Williams to serve him faithfully at Shasta Baptist Church for eleven years. During these eleven years, Bro. Williams and his wife, Anna, had three children: Emma in January 2005, Maddelyn (Maddie) in August 2007 and Jude in May of 2010.
While attending the National Pastor's Conference in Santa Clara, CA in March of 2014, God called Bro. Williams to the pastorate. After much prayerful consideration and spiritual counseling, Bro. Williams felt God specifically directing him to the city of Issaquah, WA.
In August of 2014, Bro. Williams and his family stepped out by faith and moved to the city of Issaquah, WA to begin Mountain View Baptist Church. "To God Be the Glory, Great Things He Hath Done."
We are an independent, fundamental Baptist church focused on lifting up God's Word, the Bible.
There is nothing more important than being able to answer where you will spend eternity. If you were to die today are you 100% sure that you would go to Heaven or would you have some doubt?
We are a church plant out of Shasta Baptist Church in Redding, CA.
