About Mt. Zion Baptist Church

Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Mineral Wells, WV, was established in 1815, and is the oldest church in the Parkersburg Baptist Association.“Knowing Christ and making Him known” is our mission statement. We are an evangelical and mission-minded congregation. Throughout our history, the people of Mt. Zion have shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ through preaching, teaching, and serving the needs of the Mineral Wells community.

We are affiliated with the Parkersburg Baptist Association, the West Virginia Baptist Convention, and the American Baptist Churches, U.S.A. We support missionaries all over the world by inviting people to be disciples of Jesus, by proclaiming God's reign of justice, peace, and abundant life, and by equipping the body of Christ to engage in God’s mission.
