On April 1, 2000, The Metropolitan Baptist Church voted to elect our 5th pastor. We are proud to welcome the Reverend Bobbie McDaniel, of Union Baptist Church, into The Metropolitan Baptist Church Family. We look forward, with great anticipation, to the challenges of this new Millennium, secure in the knowledge that Christ has sent us a truly anointed man to serve as under-shepherd.

Unlike most churches, The Metropolitan Baptist Church began with the merger of two churches. Zion Baptist Church worshipped on Fifth Avenue between 131st and 132nd Streets, pastured by the Reverend P.C. James. Zion Baptist Church desired a merger with Mercy Seat Baptist Church, pastured by Reverend N.S. Epps.

The officers of both churches met at the home of Reverend N.S. Epps, 51 West 134th Street. At the meeting, it was decided that both names be dropped. Trustee Robert L. Hill of the Mercy Seat Baptist Church suggested the name of Metropolitan Baptist Church.

A motion was made, carried and recorded, and that day, March 12, 1912, The Metropolitan Baptist Church was started. Its first location was the Subway Church, 45-47 West 134th Street.
