Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church exists to refresh the believer, revive the weak, and rescue the lost by proclaiming the Gospel of the Resurrected Christ until He returns.
To reinstate biblical standards in our church and local community, while exhibiting the abundant love of Christ.
Although Mt. Olive has experienced peeks and valleys in its 130 years, God’s grace and mercy has sustained and continues to cover this church. Grateful for His loving kindness, we are encouraged and stand firm on the Word of God as a band of believers whose faith in Him flourishes, increasing daily.We are a loving church that welcomes EVERYONE who desires to know our Savior, Jesus Christ. Black, White, Hispanic – it doesn't matter. The color of one’s skin or cultural background is irrelevant; all are welcomed. Sinners are welcomed,
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." – Romans 3:23
When the doors of the church open, we enter to praise and worship God collectively, while at the same time we show up to get things right, keep things right, and get things fixed that are broken within us. Mount Olive M.B.C. is like a spiritual doctor's office or hospital, it is a place one can go to receive preventive medicine, increase early detections of sickness and disease, and undergo life-saving procedures, strictly "by the Book". We must combat sin for it's outcome is death, and God's gift is eternal life (Romans 6:23). We live and walk in victory. Mount Olive is indeed "A House of Healing."
Mount Olive Baptist Church was organized in 1885 when Rev. W. H. Tipton and six members – Amos Waddy, Emma Kelly, Molly Armstrong, Babe Summers, and Edie Adams, realized the need to do so. They assembled for worship in a log cabin where they were immediately joined by brothers and sisters Will Waddy, Melissa Kelly, Mary Jane Taylor, Tempie Burns, and Ike Burns. These faithful few laid the foundation for what is now a thriving Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church.
