Mt. Pleasant Church was organized in Burnt Prairie township, in July 1830, with the following charter members: William Morgan, Fulkard Fulkerson, Daniel Hunsinger, Samuel Robertson, John Hunsinger, Jacob Matthews, Adam Hunsinger, Isaac Williams, George Pope, Adam C.

Calkins, Josiah Daniels, George Hunsinger, Jane Robertson, Polly Fulkerson, Elizabeth Hunsinger, Margaret Puntney, Polly Hunsinger, Polly Bailey, Elmyra Crowder, Sally Williams, Eliza Vaught, Margaret Vaught, Charlotte Crowder, Margaret Ralls, and Anna Roberts. The presbytery was composed of Elder Stephen Williams (Burnt Prairie Church) and Elder Elias Roberts (Bon-Pas Church), and Deacons Tolliver Simpson, William Simpson, and James Taylor. The Articles of Faith and Rules of Decorum of the Little Wabash Association were adopted. The first building was twenty-six by thirty feet, built with hewn logs, covered with three foot boards riven from timber on the church ground. The floor was puncheon (logs hewn on one side). A frame building was erected in the year 1867 at the same site. The present building, a glazed tile structure, was erected in 1949.

Elder Elias Roberts was the first pastor. He was followed by Elders Charles Whiting, William Watkins, John Hunsinger, Lewis Hunsinger, William DeFur, Lewis Hon, A. J. (Jack) Coale, Martin L. Gwaltney, Osby Weatherford, J. D. Vandeveer, Leslie Brinson, B. T. Stevens, Wayne Thacker, and Willie Huffine.

Mt. Pleasant Church first united with the Little Wabash Association, in 1830, of which it was a member until 1840, when it was dismissed to go into the constitution of the Skillet Fork Association.
