Where we came from
The story of Mount Vernon Baptist Temple is best described by Psalm 118:23: “This is the LORD’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.”
In November 1993, God led Pastor David Wood Jr. to begin MVBT. The first meeting was held in the basement of the local YMCA. God blessed this new church from the first Sunday.
While our church has locations and we have a new pastor, the spirit of the church family is the same as it was from its inception. We love God and each other, and we genuinely want God to continue blessing and multiplying the cause of Christ through our church.
Today, the Mount Vernon Baptist Temple is a thriving testimony that God is still in the business of changing lives! Words could not describe God’s goodness in this place, and all of the glory belongs to God! The lives changed, the families rescued, and the victories won have all been by God’s amazing grace! To Him be all the glory for His wonderful works at MVBT!
