Mount Moriah, whose name means “prepared for God” was organized in 1887 and was the first predominantly black Baptist church in Omaha.
Outreach to those in need has been second only to evangelism for the Mount Moriah congregation over the past 128 years. Currently Mount Moriah operates Concord Square, a 21 unit housing complex for elderly and low-income citizens; sponsors an on-site program for drug and alcohol recovery (Overcomers in Christ); regularly offers marriage and relationship education seminars, health screenings and provides Thanksgiving dinner to over 1,000 families each year.
Mount Moriah’s current pastor since 2005, the Rev. Dr. Ralph Lassiter, Sr., has continued the Mount Moriah tradition of evangelism and community service with a focus on serving the whole person without regard to race or current life challenge.
Mt. Moriah is a loving, open church focused on saving souls, growing disciples and changing lives through God’s Holy Word.
