And He is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things He might have the preeminence. 

~ Colossians 1:18 KJV


God has given us unmerited favor through the precious blood of Jesus, and has allowed us to render undeniable ministry to this area called the DMV. The Comer Memorial Baptist Church foundation was well established from 1948 to 1968. In March 1968, the church body officially reorganized as the Mt. Rona Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of Rev. Rufus I. Thomas founder and Pastor.

In August 2008, God sent Mt. Rona an anointed man of God who is not only a dynamic preacher, but a pastor who tends carefully, lovingly, and reverently over his flock, Reverend C.A. Thompson. On November 15, 2008, Pastor Thompson, anointed and appointed by God for this assignment, was installed as the pastor of Mt. Rona Missionary Baptist Church.

Pastor Thompson has baptized and grown the membership by more than 400 souls through his preaching and teaching the unadulterated gospel. He has committed himself to a mission of helping people reach their ultimate potential spiritually in their relationship with Jesus by teaching them the principles of God’s Word.

As Mt. Rona strives to be a Five-Star Church, we continue to pray and be committed to God as faithful servants.
