We invite you to join us at The Rock Mount Pisgah Missionary Baptist Church, where hope, love, and community await you. As the oldest black church in Dallas County, we are excited to share our bright future with you. We believe that it’s not by chance that you’re here, but rather a blessed opportunity for us to introduce you to the hope that is found in Jesus, love on you like family, and grow with you in community.

With a multi-generational congregation, we are committed to meeting the needs of our members and visitors of every age and stage of life. We earnestly hope that during your visit — whether in-person or online — you’ll encounter God, leave filled with hope, and gain a community that wants to walk beside you.
