Who Are We?
Greater Mount Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church is a body of baptized believers located in the city of Tallahassee, FL who strive to be a Pleasant Place with Pleasant People who offers Pleasant Praise and Pleasant Proclamations.
The vision of Greater Mount Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church is to build a community of working and worshipping believers of different socio-economic, educational and ethnic backgrounds with a two-fold ministry focus. First, to serve as a place of refreshing; equipping, encouraging, and empowering the believers to live out the truth of God’s Word. Secondly, to serve as a place of refuge for the un-churched, extending love, initiating restoration, and offering New Life through Christ. Furthermore, we further strive to create an atmosphere of authentic worship that enables us to build a church without walls by authentically displaying the love of God.
Our aim is to help populate the kingdom of God by serving as a bridge between the church and the un-churched.
Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We believe that God the Father is the first person of the Trinity and is the eternal, unchanging all-powerful, all-knowing, all-wise, all-loving, completely just and perfectly holy, sovereign Ruler and Sustainer of the universe.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the second person of the Trinity and is the only begotten eternal Son of God Who became flesh to reveal God to man, to fulfill prophecy, and to become the Savior of the lost world. In becoming man Jesus did not cease in any way to be God so that He is fully God and fully man inseparably united in one person forever. Jesus was miraculously conceived by the Holy Spirit; born of the Virgin Mary; lived a sinless life; died on the cross as the substitutionary, all-sufficient atoning sacrifice for all of the sins of all men of all time; was buried; bodily rose from the dead; physically ascended into heaven in His glorified, resurrected body; is seated at the right hand of the Father performing His ministry of intercession; will return in the air to claim His bride the church; and will come again to earth in bodily form, personally and visibly, to conclude human history and consummate God’s eternal plan by executing judgment and ushering in His Millennial Kingdom reign to be followed by the eternal state.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity Who specially came into the world on the day of Pentecost to glorify Christ and to enable men to appropriate the salvation wrought by Christ. He is the primary agent for the conviction of sin and for regeneration. Simultaneously with salvation, the Holy Spirit imparts new life, baptizes the believer into the body of Christ (His church), permanently indwells the believer, and securely seals the believer unto the day of redemption.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe that the church is the body of Christ of which Jesus is the Head and whose members are those who have truly received Christ by faith. The local church is a tangible expression of the body of Christ in a particular location and the purpose of the church is to make Christ known to lost men and to make disciples and glorify God on earth.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
