Welcome from The Pastor

James P. Thompson Jr.

Welcome to Mount Olive Baptist Church (Arlington, Texas), where we sing, believe, teach, and preach that Jesus is the Christ, Son of the Living God. We hope that you are blessed by visiting our website. However, God’s word instructs us not to forsake “the assembling of ourselves together” (Hebrews 10:25). We welcome you to assemble with us at your earliest convenience so that we may exhort one another in the bond of unity and fellowship in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Come bless us with your presence.

Our Mission

We will… Exalt the Loving Savior, Expound the Living Scriptures, Evangelize the Lost Sinner, and Edify the Learning Saint.

The goal of our Youth Ministry is to create, educate, and equip young disciples of Christ with the spiritual tools they require to be approved workers of Christ that are not ashamed and have the ability to rightly divide the Word of truth. Our student programs include Ignite in Christ and College Connections.
