The Original Mount Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church. The true Church is not a building or an organization but rather it is an organism,
a spiritual union of believers that serves the Lord in unity. In God’s plan, collectively, each church contributes toward the Kingdom Cause. We are to be unified in purpose as we pursue our God-given mission for Mount Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church. Each Pastor is given the specific work assignment for his/her church.

Our ministries, following the vision set forth by our pastor, labor together to accomplish Mount Pleasant’s assigned mission. Each of our ministries has a specific mission and purpose. Visit the specific page for each ministry to learn more about it’s mission. Each Christian has an assigned purpose and God has placed us here specifically for that purpose. If you feel called to support the work of any of our ministries, we welcome your support. We welcome new members as well as donations and other forms of support.

We also seek to create an atmosphere of praise that ministers unto God first, then to the body of Christ and also the unsaved so that all can experience the presence of God and be moved into a deeper relationship with the Lord. Our goals are:

To be true worshipers, giving our best at all times

To rehearse regularly to enhance our musical gifts
To solicit, encourage and motivate potential singers
To follow the leadership and vision of our Pastor

The office of Deacon appears in the New Testament as “a servant running through the dust to serve.” The deacon is called upon to assist the pastor and therefore is to serve in the true sense of the term “helper.” The deacon serves closely with the pastor, assisting him with the spiritual aspects of the church.

The Deacons of Original Mount Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church are active men whose responsibility it is to assist the pastor with the sacraments of the church, the visiting of the sick, bereaved, as well as providing other acts of benevolence that are to be shown toward the membership. Acts 6 solidifies the need for deacons.

The Intercessory Prayer Ministry of Original Mount Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church is designed to take time daily (24 hours a day, seven days a week) to pray and stand in the gap for others.

The key hours of prayer are 12 midnight, 6 a.m., 12 noon and 6p.m. The Intercessory Prayer Ministry leads communal prayer meetings on Mondays evenings, where we come together in unity for prayer.
