The Greater Mount Sinai Baptist Church was once a part of the Mount Moriah Primitive Baptist Church which was formerly located at the corner of North Alexander and East 11th Streets. In October of 1933, Mount Sinai Baptist Church was founded under the leadership of Rev. Thomas F. Fraylon. A trustee suggested the name be changed to The Greater Mount Sinai Baptist Church. That suggestion was agreed to by the congregation, and the name of the church remains today.
During the elapsed time from its founding, seven pastors have served the flock: Rev. T.F. Fraylon, Rev. J.E. Fiddmont, Jr., Rev. W.F. Elliot, Rev. A. Walter Williams, Rev. Norman Kerry, Sr., Rev. Dr. George Cook, Jr., and Rev. Dr. Major A. Stewart. Under the leadership of Rev. Norman Kerry, Sr. and Rev. George Cook, Jr., numerous ministries and auxiliaries were birthed with the objective of activating the members into the mission of kingdom building.
In 1996, a vision was revealed to Rev. George Cook, Jr. to lead the church into the “New Millennium”. The mission statement for the vision - “Being A Full Time Caring Church That Searches For The Lost” became part of the GMSBC church culture having been transformed from “Becoming A Full Time Caring Church That Searches For The Lost”.
Greater Mount Sinai opened the Family Life Enrichment Center in 2010 in order to further expand the internal and external ministry reach of the church. Included in this complex are a Senior Citizens Activities Center, a Computer Training Lab, and Sunday School classroom space. Also included are a regulation–sized gymnasium which is used by our Youth Basketball League, the Christian Athletic Association, and the community. Other amenities of the center include conference rooms, classrooms, a walking track, exercise room, shower facilities, and other features which offer spiritual fellowship as well as educational and physical wellness opportunities within the church and community.
Rev. Dr. Major A. Stewart, accepted the calling to become the 7th Pastor in the church’s history and he delivered his first sermon as Pastor-elect on November 6, 2016. Pastor Stewart was installed as Pastor on March 26, 2017. Pastor Stewart has been called to lead Greater Mount Sinai to a higher level of spiritual commitment and kingdom building through service to community and to each another. He has embraced the challenge to grow the fellowship in faith and numbers. While he is following Rev. Dr. George Cook, Jr.’s legacy, Pastor Stewart is in the midst of making his own indelible mark in the church’s history based on the vision that God has placed before him. Pastor Stewart stresses the importance of strengthening our foundation of Christian Ministry through Sunday School and Bible Study attendance, engaging ourselves in evangelistic outreach, practicing a consistent, balanced prayer life, immersing ourselves spiritually through Christian Education studies and reading the Word in addition to regular attendance and fellowship at Sunday Worship.

Our Vision : The Mission of our church is focused on “Being A Full-Time Caring Church That Searches For the Lost.”We propose to do this in two ways: first, through Ministries and secondly, through New Styles of Evangelism. These modes of Caring and Searching are in keeping with the Biblical Text.It is through our Ministries that we care for the rejected, the broken hearted, the jobless, the imprisoned, the sick, the homeless, the hungry and the hopeless. It is through ministries like:The Room-In-The-Inn: that the homeless are sheltered and fed during the winter months.The Marriage Enrichment Ministry: that restores, love, laughter, joy, peace and fellowship into the lives of married couples.The Storehouse Ministry: that seeks to provide help in crisis situations.The Young At Heart Ministry: that engages senior members monthly in wholesome, lively and lighthearted activities that bring smiles instead of gloom.It is through ministries like these and a various other ministries that we demonstrate our caring.Secondly, it is through these Caring Ministries that we search for the lost. We’ve found out that people don’t care how much we know about God until they see how much we care about them. It is on this premise that the legitimacy of our search begins.The lost are those who do not know Christ as their personal Savior. They know him as Jesus the earthly son of Mary, or as a Jewish Prophet that lived in the first century, or as a good man who wrongly died on a cross centuries ago. But our aim is to introduce Jesus to them as the Son of God who was sent by His Father to liberate us from the evil and ruinous ways of the world and Satan. The willingness to abide by the teachings of Christ saves and liberates us from spiritual ruination to spiritual salvation. This is the major component of our Vision.
