    About Jesus

    About Jesus: God's Simple Plan Of Salvation

    Dear Friend: Are you sure you will go to Heaven when you die?

    God says in order to go to Heaven, you must be born again. In John 3:7, Jesus said to Nicodemus, “Ye must be born again.”

    In the Bible God gives us the plan of how to be born again which means to be saved. His plan is simple! You can be saved today. How?

    First, realize you are a sinner. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).

    Because you are a sinner, you are condemned to death. “For the wages [payment] of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). This includes eternal separation from God in Hell. “ . . . it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27).

    But God loved you so much He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus, to bear your sin and die in your place. “ . . . He hath made Him [Jesus, Who knew no sin] to be sin for us . . . that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21).

    Jesus had to shed His blood and die. “For the life of the flesh is in the blood” (Lev. 17:11). “ . . . without shedding of blood is no remission [pardon]” (Hebrews 9:22)

    “ . . . God commandeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). Although we cannot understand how, God said my sins and your sins were laid upon Jesus and He died in our place. He became our substitute. It is true. God cannot lie.

    History of Mount Pisgah A.M.E.

    Route 108 to Cedar Fern Court
    Mt. Pisgah A.M.E. Church’s History

         Mr. William Richardson and a few other A.M.E. members who transferred from St. Stephens A.M.E. Church in Elkridge, Maryland founded Mount Pisgah African Methodist Episcopal Church in Jonestown, Maryland around 1898.  Holding the services in a log cabin owned by George Jones – the great-grandfather of a present member, Rosie Wilson – these few members had the first vision of a permanent church facility.  The Howard County land records indicated that Plato and Evelina Green purchased an acre of land near Pfiffer’s Corner of Ellicott City, Maryland, on May 31, 1900.  On December 5, 1901, Mount Pisgah A.M.E. Church became incorporated.  The first trustees were Moses Jones, William Richardson, William Watkins, Nicholas Thorton, Edward Adams and Plato H. Green, who was also the minister.  He was pastor from 1901 through 1921.  Also, on December 5, 1901, Rev. Green deeded approximately ¼ acre of his new tract of land to the newly established Mt. Pisgah.  Some of the other founding members were Annie Watkins, Tom and Laura Dorsey, Mrs. William Richardson and Louise Watkins (Mrs. Louise Dorsey) who joined Mt. Pisgah at the age of 12 years and remained a loyal member for 87 years.  A member in good standing, Louise Dorsey had been the oldest living member until her death in December 1985.
         The first facility was donated by the congregation of Old Bellow Springs Methodist Church, and was moved to the land in 1901.  Several years later, this facility was destroyed by fire.  Tom Dorsey and his son, Howard, under the pastorship of Rev. E. E. Hughes built the historic Mt. Pisgah A.M.E., located on Route 108, in 1923.  Mr. and Mrs. Edward Adams, Mr. and Mrs. Moses Young, Rose Dorsey and Carrie Matthews assisted the Dorseys.  To pay for the existing chapel the money was borrowed from Andrew Kraft who owned a meat store in Ellicott City, Maryland.  The first payment on the loan of one thousand dollars ($1,000) was made by Perry William Taylor and the last payment was made by Nat Coats.
         Mt. Pisgah was one of three churches on the Elkridge Circuit through 1975.  Between 1901 and 1905, Mt. Pisgah was served by the following ministers:  Rev. Green, Rev. Hughes, Rev. Lee, Rev. Handy, Rev. Hayman, Rev. Baker, Rev. Ford, Rev. Bowling, Rev. Wing, Rev. Gray, Rev. Barns, Rev. Mack, Rev. Lane,  Rev. Harrison, Rev. Hawkins, Rev. Young, Rev. Hines, Rev. Hayden, Rev. Curtis, Rev. Watson, Rev. Howard, Rev. Jackson, Rev. Taylor, Rev. Thompson, Rev. Swann, Rev. McGlen, Rev. Boykin and presently, Rev. Smedley.  All of these devoted pastors were committed messengers of God and led Mount Pisgah through its historical journey.
         In December 1993, Rev. Donald L. Smedley was appointed Pastor of Mt. Pisgah A.M.E.  Plans were near completion for the move into the temporary sanctuary known as the Mt. Pisgah Annex.  Under Pastor Smedley’s leadership, services began in March 1994 at the Mt. Pisgah Annex.  The temporary facility provided more space, comfort and room for additional ministries of the Church.  With the continued growth in membership, the vision for a new Mt. Pisgah was stronger and closer.  An opportunity to make the vision a reality occurred in July, 1995, when trustee, Ron Feaster, observed a church for sale on Cedar Fern Court in Columbia, Maryland.  He brought this information to the attention of Pastor Smedley and the Trustees.  In August, 1995, Mount Pisgah signed a contract to purchase our present facility from Covenant Baptist Church.
    On March 17, 1996, the Mount Pisgah family moved into our present facility in Columbia, Maryland. Under the leadership of Pastor Smedley, Mt. Pisgah’s ministries, membership and maintenance continue to grow.
    On April 22, 2016, The Right Reverend Bishop William Phillips DeVeaux Sr. appointed Charlotte Michele Langston as the Pastor of Mt. Pisgah. The Mount Pisgah ministries and
    membership continues to “Change lives for the Kingdom by reaching up and out through the power of the Holy Spirit.
