The Rich History of Mt. Olive Missionary Baptist Church

Through God's grace and His Blessings, Mt. Olive commemorated our 100th (Centennial) Anniversary in 2007, celebrating the entire year with special events and activities.

Established in 1907, Mt. Olive is the first and the oldest African-American Baptist Church in Flint and Genesee County. During the 2007 year-long celebration, an historical plaque was purchased and dedicated to recapping Mt. Olive's historical past. It is located in the horseshoe courtyard, near the North entrance.

Mt. Olive produced a historical documentary DVD, "This Far by Faith," narrated by Mt. Olive members. The documentary recalls Mt. Olive history in a dramatic, yet humorous manner. "This Far by Faith" is a 60-Minute historic documentary DVD that is available for purchase.

New Members are welcome to join the Historic Ministry that preserves Mt. Olive history through articles, programs, minutes, documents, and audio-visual media.


Mt. Olive has a wide array of ministries for you to choose how you want to serve within the body of Christ. Scripture says that "Faith without works is dead" James 2: 14 - 18. This means that when you have Faith that Jesus is your Savior, you serve Him through action (activity) in His body, which is the church.

First review the list of ministries open for your participation. Second, once you decide on a ministry or ministries that interests you, call the church office at 234-8168 to obtain the contact name and number of the Deacon that is assigned to that ministry. The Deacons can help put you in touch with a member of the ministry for information on times and dates of meetings.

"What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? "Faith by itself, if not accompanied by action, is dead."James 2: 14, 17b
