Our Story

We are not a building or an event. We are a church family, meeting people where they are, looking to our Savior Jesus.
We are a new church that launched on Easter of 2023, sent out by Compass South in Southside, AR.  In late 2022, God began pulling together a few families who wanted to see something new for the greater Mountain View area. With the leadership of Compass South, through the power of the Holy Spirit, 18 weeks of prayer led to what is now Compass View.


As we look across Stone County and our world, we see those who are uninvited, unaccepted, and forgotten. With a deep compassion in our hearts we are called to meet them where they are with a vision of hope. There are three words that describe our calling.


We long to see restoration in a forgotten place, make disciples, and send the next generation. We want to invite you on this journey of living our kingdom calling where we live, work, and play.



From our earliest days we knew modeling the early church would be vital to our existence. Our values drive our culture. We long to emulate the ways of Jesus, and the early church. Are values flow from Acts 2:42-47 where we get an instagram moment of the early church.  


Hang Together

Good families spend time together. We create biblical community through Sundays, Home Groups, events, parties, serve Sundays, and regular meet-ups.

(Acts 2:42; Hebrews 12:24-25)

Eat Together

The table shapes our life together. Like Jesus, we see the table as vital to healthy community and making disciples. Hospitality is key.

(Acts 2:42; 1 Peter 4:7-9)

Learn Together

We believe and trust the Bible as the word of God to us. To learn together is to learn about Christ, his ways, & teaching. The Gospel is central to our theology, all we do, & teach.
(Acts 2:42
2 Timothy 2:2,8; John 15)

Pray Together

Prayer is our only method.  Like the early church, we begin and continue in prayer.  We strive to model Christ's teaching and the activity of prayer to our God who hears.

(Acts 2:42; Acts 1:14 Philippians 4:6-7
1 John 5:14-15)

"And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers."
Acts 2:42

Serve Together

The church was made for mission. We are called to live out the ways of Jesus who came to serve the world. We serve together on Serve Sundays, and Home Groups.

(Acts 1:8; Mark 10:45; Matthew 22:37-40; Matthew 28:18-20)

Our Beliefs

The Gospel

We are in the middle of an incredible story.  The scriptures unfold for us a story of redemption, with the gospel at the center. So, the central message of the Bible is the gospel, the good news concerning the perfect life, sacrificial death, burial, and glorious resurrection of Jesus. Jesus, the Son of God, came as the ultimate prophet, priest, and king. He did for us what we could not do for ourselves in order to bring us back to God by grace through faith. Therefore, Jesus is the subject of all scripture.  

We believe the gospel, and we are shaped by the gospel. We boast in Jesus, not religious performance. When we notice the gap between our sinfulness and God's holiness, we know that only Jesus can fill the gap. The gospel is the work of Jesus for us and the means of Jesus work in us. Like Jesus, we call everyone to repent and believe the gospel.
(Mark 1:14-15; Romans 1:1-6,16; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; 1 John 5:12-14; Ephesians 2:8-9)

In all things love...

We hold to essential theological Christian beliefs, rooted in Scriptures, and held by generations who came before us.  Our statement of faith summarizes essential Christian beliefs, shows unity in Christ, and guards the church from error.

At the same time we affirm "In essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty; in all things love.”  It is our aim to remain true to our essential theological beliefs which are foundation and close-handed.  However, we will not get caught up in arguments over opened-handed issues that tend to create unnecessary division.

Titus 3:8-9; Romans 14:1, 4, 12, 22; 1 Corinthians 13; Philippians 2:1-11
