In a day when churches nationwide are in a state of flux, giving-in to new philosophyâ€™s of purpose-driven ministry and changing doctrines, Mt. Zion Baptist Church remains the way we have always beenâ€”â€śChurch, the way it used to be.â€ť We stress solid Bible preaching and teaching, emphasize individual and family living for Christ, focus on reaching out to our community and the world with the Gospel, and try to guard against the influx of worldliness into the church.
If you are looking for this kind of church, do something about it. Serving Christ can be fresh and exciting again. Come and worship with us this Sunday. We are sure that youâ€™ll find that the drive IS worth the difference.
