Church History

In 1923, when times were particularly difficult for a race of people who were only a few decades past slavery and experiencing extreme poverty, a dynamic project had its beginning.  The project was that of the founding of Mount Pilgrim Missionary Baptist Church originally referred to as “Rock Street Church.” It took a great deal of stamina, foresight, love, and most of all prayers for spiritual guidance from God on the part of 14 pilgrims who might be called the founding fathers of this church.
