What is now the First Mount Zion Baptist Church began in 1867, two years after the end of slavery. A group of devoted Christians came together with a shared vision of establishing a place of worship and community for their fellow believers. These pioneers of faith faced numerous challenges during a time of great social and political upheaval in the United States. Yet, their determination and faith in God propelled them forward to establish what was called the Mount Zion Baptist Church.  See the full history here.
