Mt. Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church of Downsville,
In 2008 we entered into our new Church Building that was built directly behind our previous building. To God Be The Glory!
In the year of our Lord, on October 2, 2016, we will be celebrating our 150th year Church Anniversary & Homecoming. We are “Blessed” to have been able to offer service, praise and worship to God, to our brothers and sisters in Christ, and the community during this journey.
We realized that the Bible say, “If you pray, something is bound to happen.” In 2003 the members chose to adopt the slogan of “A Family That Prays Together Stays Together.” In October 2004, God sent the church a new Shepherd, Rev. Larry D. Courtney and his lovely wife, Sister Cynthia Courtney. Pastor Courtney continued to tell the members of Mt. Pleasant MBC that, as long as we stand on the “Word of God”, you can not go wrong. He reminded us that we must always love and have compassion for our fellowman. God blessed and equipped this man of God to lead the members to a new level. In 2015, Rev. Courtney and his wife accepted God’s calling in another state. How they have been missed, but before Pastor Courtney left, he told the members of Mt. Pleasant to continue to pray and seek God’s face, because He was going to send us a more powerful preacher that will lead, teach, and guide us to higher grounds in the “Word of God.” GOD kept His word!
On July 3rd, 2016, God sent a new dynamic leader our way, Rev. Duriel O. Stimpson, Sr. and First Lady Stephanie Stimpson. Oh how our hearts have been “Blessed” by this family.
To GOD Be the Glory, from whom all blessings flow!
Mt. Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church has as its basic purpose the continuation of the mission and ministry of Jesus Christ. We are baptized believers that strive to be transformed by Christ, nurtured in Christ, and mobilized through the Holy Spirit to participate with God in His work.
