The History of Mountain Life Church

Life is filled with starting points and the same is true of churches. Mountain Life Church started not with a physical building, but as an idea planted in the hearts of four couples. They wanted to create a Bible-based church, open to all people, that would become an authentic Christian community in Park City, Utah.

The year was 1992 and Park City looked a lot different than it does now. With only a few stoplights, the small mountain town only had one grocery store and Kimball Junction didn’t even exist. Over the next ten years, both Park City and Mountain Life Church would grow and flourish together.

The vision of the four couples became a reality when they called Scott Fine to be the first pastor of Mountain Life. The church office was located in Scott’s home and space was rented at Carden Academy, a local school in Pinebrook, to hold a worship service each Sunday. Despite these humble beginnings, the church was eventually able to build a beautiful facility on 11 acres in Silver Creek and they moved in right before the 2002 Olympics.

Almost two decades later, Mountain Life Church is thriving, Pastor Scott is still the senior pastor and the result is a church family with a passion for God and compassion for people. The following video gives you a sneak peek into the people and visuals of Mountain Life. To learn more, and to watch the rest of this engaging video, consider signing up for our Starting Point class.

Offered on the first Sunday of every month, right after the 10:45am service, Starting Point is the next step for anyone looking to connect with Mountain Life. This 45-minute class, which also includes lunch, gives folks the opportunity to meet some of the church staff and learn about the different ministries available. Think of it as your starting point on your personal journey with Mountain Life Church.
