The Peaceful Rest Missionary Baptist Church – “The Family of Faith” – was organized on February 3, 1953 by the Reverend Dr. John Douglas Thomas and 85 believers. The first edifice is located at 482 East 71st Street. We have been on St. Vincent Avenue since 2000.
Our ministry is built on three core values – faith, hope, and love. It is our goal to make disciples and to provide a clear, simple path for them to grow, serve and care. When we gather as a corporate body we speak to the heart of God through worship and God speaks to the hearts of His people through His Word.
The world is invited into our sanctuary each week via radio, television, and Internet broadcasts. Our global reach extends to Haiti, Ghana, Ethiopia and Malawi. Dr. R. Timothy Jones has served as pastor since November, 1994.
