About Us


From conception, Grace Baptist Church of Georgia emerged with marvelously rich history. Partially emanating from within the well-established powerful legacy of Mt. Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church, hundreds of believers as well as many new parishioners joined together in pursuit of a higher calling and expanded vision. Together, they launched out to do an even greater work on behalf of the causes of Christ. Led by Reverend Clinton McFarland, the vibrant congregation represents not a beginning but the continuation of a century of determined commitment and faithfulness to God’s Kingdom. Filled with a hunger and thirst for God, many others in the metropolitan Atlanta area also embraced the charge upon a son of God who promised years ago to do His will.

In 2009 Reverend McFarland was consecrated as Pastor of Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church of Atlanta after an exhaustive search by church leaders. Upon examination and review of many qualified candidates, Reverend McFarland emerged as the most qualified and experienced aspirant with a proven track record of effectiveness in many areas. As a result of this transfer of leadership, Mt. Pleasant experienced phenomenal growth in all areas. In March of 2012 Rev. McFarland led the church into a major expansion by establishing an additional location in the Lithonia, GA community. Hundreds of new members became connected to this Lithonia church.

Over the course of six years he, along with the members of Mt. Pleasant, had gratefully benefited from the grace of God as He blessed the church with tremendous growth, stable finances, much-improved physical facilities and willing Kingdom workers. Even with tremendous success, Reverend McFarland admits bewilderment as he clearly received the mandate to resign as pastor of Mt. Pleasant Atlanta but continue the work that was started under his leadership in Lithonia. In obedience to God, and at peace with both the process and direction, he then made ready to embark upon the newer and challenging task assigned to his hands. On November 30, 2014, Pastor McFarland and the members of Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church of Lithonia reorganized and became Grace Baptist Church of Georgia. The first worship service was convened in the Porter Sanford Performing Arts Center on Rainbow Drive in Decatur, Georgia at 9:30 am. The atmosphere was jubilant as the auditorium filled to capacity with hopeful believers whose presence signaled willingness to remain aligned with a spiritual leader who, under the auspices of God Almighty, had deposited much into their spiritual growth since his arrival in the metropolitan Atlanta area.
