After careful consideration and prayer, members voted on April 14th to remain an independent church. Thank you to all who participated in this process. Now, as we look ahead to our next steps as an independent church, know that our faith in God's guidance and our dedication to serving His kingdom remain resolute.

We ask each of you to continue to uphold our church family in prayer as we continue to Love God and Love People. Let us lean on one another for support and encouragement, knowing that together, with God's grace and guidance, we will continue to shine the light of Christ in our community and beyond.

Mount Pisgah’s disaffiliation from the United Methodist Church was officially ratified today by the North Georgia Annual Conference.


Under paragraph 2553 of the UMC Book of Discipline, 261 churches were approved for disaffiliation on November 18, 2023. Since June of 2022, 44% of churches in the North Georgia Conference have disaffiliated. As we move forward, we remain steadfast in our commitment to praying for God's blessing over the United Methodist Church and for all churches that are departing or remaining as they continue to make disciples of Jesus Christ.


What led us to this pivotal moment?


To everything, there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1


Following a year of prayer and discernment, Mount Pisgah members gathered on June 7, 2023, for a congregational vote. 92% of those present cast ballots in favor of disaffiliation. 


This disaffiliation decision, while signifying the conclusion of one phase, is a testament to the unwavering faith and trust in God's divine guidance which will undoubtedly guide our congregation as we commit to our Vision Forward. Mount Pisgah Church has stood strong for nearly 200 years, and we will continue our dedication to our mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ here, there, and everywhere.


What’s Next?


I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go. Psalm 32.8


Mount Pisgah officially became an independent church on December 1, 2023. Our official name is MP Church, Inc. and we are known as Mount Pisgah Church. Consistent with our historic mission, our Statement of Faith is posted on our website:


Mount Pisgah leadership is dedicated to providing comprehensive guidance and information to the congregation regarding various options available for the future, including remaining an independent church, joining an association, or considering affiliation with a denomination. Informational meetings, including church-wide meetings and smaller group meetings will be held in February to present information, provide insight, and answer questions as we collectively navigate the road ahead. A church-wide vote by members will be held regarding any decision to join another denomination or remain independent.


Throughout this journey, God’s work continues uninterrupted here at Mount Pisgah! Please join us as we give thanks to God for sustaining us throughout this season with His faithfulness and grace!
