About Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church
The church was established in 1875 and has grown to having an average attendance of 750 pre-Covid to 500 post-Covid, running three services in a 500-seat multi-purpose facility. The church is doctrinally conservative and adheres to the historical context of Scripture. The church is in a rural setting in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of NC. We are led by Elders/Pastors and have a Congregational Polity. The church is financially sound and has no debt. The church loves the Lord Jesus Christ and seeks to make Him known by being mission-minded in the local community through our sports ministries and event activities, as well as throughout the world, by supporting various missionaries and taking many mission trips as a church. The church moved from a traditional worship style to contemporary, over the last 15 years and has an amazing range of musical and artistic talent in the church. MPBC is the largest church in the county and in western NC. The Lord Jesus has had His hand of favor on us for many years. We're humbled and grateful for all He has done and we look forward to continuing to see people and families to come to personally know and follow Him!
