Church History: Mount Zion Baptist Church, Alanthus, Culpeper County, Virginia was first known as Mount Zion Colored Church, Mt. Zion, Virginia. The land on which it is built was purchased by deed on March 20, 1876.  The congregation included former slaves and their offspring. Family surnames included Adams, Banks, Bundy, Carpenter, Franklin, Jackson, James, Jasper, Latham, Moon, Robinson, and Weston. According to available records, the current and 16th Pastor, Sylvester H. Brown was installed on June 9, 2013. We are a family-oriented church with the biblical mandate to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ, glorify God, and love our fellow believers and our neighbors. Since 2013, we have completed several projects in pursuit of improving the facilities and increasing the spiritual growth of the congregation. We have renovated the sanctuary both externally and internally. With the help of the Almighty God, we have upgraded the flooring, walls, ceiling, lighting, gutter system, siding, and sound system. Addtitionally, we have removed old chimneys and pews.
