Mt. Ivy Christian Church is a part of the brotherhood known as Independent Christian Churches and Churches of Christ.  These churches are led by elders in each local congregation with no regional or national headquarters or denominational affiliation.  Our purpose for existing is to make disciples for Jesus Christ and to build up believers by teaching them the word of God, encouraging and challenging them to live in obedience to Jesus as Lord.  We seek to practice New Testament Christianity in all its simplicity, without following man-made creeds or traditions. 

We would love the opportunity to share more about the church with you.  To learn more or to ask any questions you may have, please contact us by phone at (540) 721-5060, by e-mail at, or by worshiping with us personally if you are in the Smith Mountain Lake area.  If you are not in the area, we would be glad to help you locate a church near you.  Just let us know how we may serve you!
