God has so richly blessed this body of believers known as New Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church. As we continue to serve Him, worship Him and witness for Him, we look to Him for direction in what He desires for us to do. We continue to thank Him for what He has, is and will continue to do in the life of His church. May we increase our light on this corner as we strive to serve His people in this community.
