We are so glad that you have taken time to visit our website and are getting to know us better.
We are a Historic Southern Baptist church located in the horse country of Woodford Co. Kentucky. The church is located at 1220 old Frankfort Pike in Versailles, Kentucky which is just minutes from downtown Versailles, Lexington, Georgetown, and Frankfort. The landscape surrounding the church is dotted with hills and pastures that are home to some of the worlds best thoroughbred horses and while the scenery is great we believe the people are even better.
Our church was established in 1822 and we are looking forward to celebrating our 200 year anniversary in just a few years. We were blessed in 1874 to have James P. Boyce and John A. Broadus both preach in our facility and were able to donate to the cause of moving The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary to Louisville. Although our history is important to us, we believe that what God will do in the next 200 years is even more important and we look forward to and embrace the challenges and changes that are to come.
Our congregation is striving to be a multi-generational congregation and it is our desire to honor God by connecting all people to Jesus Christ and serving the world for Jesus’ sake. Ultimately, our desire is for everyone to come to know Jesus Christ as Savior and LORD because He is worthy of all of our worship.
Feel free to contact us with any questions or, better yet, come check us out in person and see what God is up to in our community. We would love to sit down and answer any questions you might have.
Mark 12:30–31 (ESV):
30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
We want people to be madly and deeply in love with God and with people, because they are the image bearers of God. We don’t want them to love with the same love that the world has, but with a Christ-like love that is selfless.
Biography of Bro. Bill Boldt
On April 2, 2023 Mt. Vernon Baptist Church voted to call me as their pastor. Mt. Vernon has a rich history of over 200 years of ministry to the surrounding community and seeks to continue to be a light in a dark world by teaching and living the truth of God's word and leading people to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I am excited about what the Lord will be doing for His Kingdom as we join the Family of God at Mt. Vernon and walk in obedience to His Word. If there ever was a time for truth to be shared from the Holy Scriptures, it is Now! There is much darkness in our world and in need of the light of Hope in Jesus. We hope and pray that many will be willing to hear the word of truth from the Lord and join us in our endeavors to be all that God wants us to be. Bro. Bill and his wife Diane of 54 years want to welcome everyone to come and see what God is doing in the ministry here. I have been in ministry for 42 years, pastored six churches and I am as excited about God's work and how He can use me more than ever. For those of you who read this know that you are being prayed for and if you wish to contact us we would welcome your messages to see how we can help you learn more about God's wonderful plan for your life. The folks at Mt. Vernon Baptist Church love you and welcome you to our ministry anytime!
