Mt. Pisgah Missionary Baptist Church was established in {1926} and incorporated on Wednesday, June 15, 1983.

· Does anyone know the prior building Mt. Pisgah Missionary Baptist Church was located at prior to 4600-22 S King Drive?


Our building located at 4600 S King Drive was designed by prominent and prolific Chicago architect Alfred S. Alschuler and constructed in 1912. The primary facades of the church are clad with limestone and our 2ndbuilding (attached to the Church), is clad with brick and limestone accents. The complex opened as the third temple for Sinai Congregation, Chicago’s first Jewish reform congregation. At Sinai, Alschuler designed an impressively broad and imposing façade with a classical monumentality that would be imitated across Chicago’s South Side synagogues in subsequent years. Sinai was one of the last synagogues designed by Alschuler in a popular Neoclassical style.


The complex continues to operate as a place of worship and a social center under Mt. Pisgah Missionary Baptist Church. The congregations that have called Alschuler’s masterpiece home have been stewards of his design, preserving the original architectural and character-defining features. In 1996, the Chicago Historic Resources Survey rated the building orange for its architectural and historical significance within its context of Grand Boulevard.


Mt Pisgah Missionary Baptist Church earned historic landmark status on 03/2020.
