Our History

Since our humble beginnings back in 1844, Mount Hermon Baptist Church has grown from a small rural congregation serving our immediate community to a vibrant regional church impacting the greater Danville area. From our earliest beginnings, a passion for missions was built into the very DNA of our church. Throughout our more than 160 years of ministry, our collective heartbeat for missions has expanded both in terms of our vision and our reach. From Togo, West Africa to Phnom Penh, Cambodia, God has given Mount Hermon Baptist Church the wonderful opportunity to carry the Gospel of Jesus Christ to some of the “uttermost” parts of this planet. As we seek to impact future generations for Christ, missions—both global and local—will always be at the forefront of who we are.
