Baptist & Christian Church in Charlotte, NC


Welcome to the Charlotte community and to our website. Charlotte is a dynamic, evolving community which many thousands like you have come to enjoy; over 45,000 last year alone! It is a growing, mid-sized metropolis which in many ways maintains a quaint, southern charm. There are many farmers’ markets, the beautiful and famed tree canopy, the bustling “Uptown,” and world class dining and entertainment. You have come to a truly spectacular place.

All of Charlotte’s charm, however, would be less enjoyable without a strong faith component to give meaning to it all. Charlotte is home to some of America’s most exciting churches. I invite you to one of the most unique of those faith communities, the Mayfield Memorial Missionary Baptist Church. We are a warm, family-friendly church that emphasizes Christian Education and loves excellence.

Drs. Peter and Wanda Wherry

One of our Outreach Ministries is that we own and operate an apartment community for seniors, The Mayfield Apartments. We have a marvelous mix of dynamic and committed young adults and seniors, professionals and business owners, and our children and youth population is constantly growing. We believe that giving God our best is a hallmark of love for God.

Our worship services are balanced, and celebrate musical and preaching traditions which minister to the head and the heart. We love all types of music. In the same service, you may hear an anthem and be lifted from your seat by a Gospel song. We have offered the community organ recitals featuring hymns, classics and contemporary music on our massive five manual pipe and electronic organ and have sponsored Grammy and Stellar award nominated Gospel artists such as Beverly Crawford, Vanessa Bell Armstrong, and opera star Eric Green. Mayfield is a truly unique and wonderful church.
