Pastor and Sister CoatesBlessings of love and peace to you all. It is my pleasure to welcome you to this new ‘OUR MOUNT HOPE’ website. We are really excited about the prospects of having you share in our many blessings over the worldwide web. As a missions minded ministry we view the launch of this site as a giant leap towards doing more outside of the church building to deliver the Hope of Christ to the hopeless, the love of Christ to the loveless, and the Lord’s promise of rest to the weary.

We hope you will stop by this site regularly. Come for prayer, Bible study, devotion, and to check out church and community interest updates. Please do not leave without signing our guestbook, or posting comments. On behalf of my husband of 45 years, Bishop Richard Coates and the Mount Hope Baptist Church of Faith family, I also extend a warm invitation for you to come join in our worship experience.

We’re located at 4636 Parrish Street in West Philadelphia, PA 19139.


With Love & Grace,

Sister Dorothy Coates
