What Members Say Add your voice

  • I am so proud to be a member of Greater Mount Zion Baptist church. It truly feels like a family the moment you arrive. Pastor Gaylon Clark is an amazing Pastor who shares his pulpit with the other ministers as we all give Praise to Our Father in Heaven. As our service grows we have expanded to a Saturday at 5:30 pm service which is great. the 10 am service is definitely the largest congregation but honestly anytime you go you will experience the best in Faith as The Word is delivered. It is amazing. Let me say this I moved to Austin so I could go visit The Potters House in Fort Worth and Lakewood Church in Houston alternating every other weekend. I wondered in GMZ and have yet to leave I am going on 3 years strong! It is AMAZING!
