Marcus Pointe Christian School has a rich legacy of faith and is built on Christian values and morals. Inspired by the educational legacy and traditions handed down to us by Pastor Gordon Godfrey, Jr., we are confident that our academic excellence will allow us to continue to serve the Pensacola community for years to come.
Pastor Godfrey was saved in 1972 in Montgomery, Alabama, and one year later began serving in ministry. He began his full-time ministry in 1979 in Panama City, Florida, at Central Baptist Church, and in 1991, he became Pastor of Fundamental Baptist Church in Pensacola, Florida.
The church experienced rapid growth and soon outgrew its buildings, at which time the church voted to relocate and change its name to Marcus Pointe Baptist Church. Since 1991, average weekly attendance has climbed from 63 people to more than 1600. Marcus Pointe Baptist Church has averaged more than 500 salvations and 350 new members.
Under the leadership of Pastor Godfrey, Marcus Pointe Baptist has expanded to include a Christian school for elementary students, a thrift store benefiting military families, and an online Christian academy for 3rd to 12th graders.
