We believe in one God, the Father Almighty
Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible:
And in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds;
God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God;
begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father,
by Whom all things were made:
Who for us men and for our salvation came down from Heaven,
and was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary, and was made man:
And was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; he suffered and was buried:
And the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures:
And ascended into Heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of the Father:
And he shall come again, with glory, to judge both the quick and the dead:
Whose Kingdom will have no end:
And we believe in the Holy Ghost the Lord, and Giver of Life,
Who proceedeth from the Father and the Son
Who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified,
Who spake by the Prophets.
And we believe in One Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church,
We acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins.
And we look for the Resurrection of the Dead:
And the Life of the world to come. Amen.
Mount Pisgah Baptist Church was constituted as the "Church of Yates Meeting House" on August 26, 1814. In 1818 the name was changed to Mount Pisgah. The church has occupied four buildings; the present sanctuary was erected in 1951 under the pastorate of C. E. Byrd.
There were 15 male and 21 female charter members of the church. These members were very much concerned with church discipline, as shown by the peace, fellowship and union in the church.
In 1850 a Sunday School was established. During its early days, the church only met one Sunday a month, but in 1882 the church decided to meet twice a month. The church was very evangelistic, as was demonstrated by large numbers of people being baptized. In 1857 the church had a membership of 297.
Many men from this church have been called into the ministry; the best known being Matthew T. Yates, North Carolina's Pioneer Missionary to China. Others who have become ministers from this church are M. S. Ferrell, Madison Yates, J. T. Mason, Henry Merritt, Joe Hillard, H. C. Sears, C. A. Upchurch, Emmitt Yates, O. W. Yates, George Howard, C. E. Byrd, Hugh Upchurch, Harry Byrd, and Marvin Yates.
