Jesus Christ Baptist Church

Who We Are

Many Faces, One Faith.

     We are a diverse group of believers united by our shared faith in a loving God. Who shed his blood on the cross, in our place for our sins. 

     In February 1978, God established a church on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and ordained Charles McKinney as its founding pastor. From the very beginning, this local congregation of believers was recognized as a strong source for the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ to lost souls. Men and women from around the world acknowledge the ministry of Jesus Christ Baptist Church as the means which either led to their salvation or was the inspiration they needed to help them grow spiritually.

     To this day, nothing has changed regarding this gospel ministry. Just as it was in the founding days, today you can still hear the bold and straightforward preaching regarding faith in the shed blood of The Lord Jesus Christ as the only means of eternal salvation and how sin is dealt with and called by name without the respect of persons. This unwavering stand for truth and righteousness has defined Pastor McKinney and Jesus Christ Baptist Church in the hearts and minds of many and has been what God has used to point men and women to His son Jesus Christ. Time would fail to speak of the multitudes who have testified over the years how this brand of preaching for which Jesus Christ Baptist Church is known is one of the few things in life which would have gotten their attention in this world of sin. We are all embarked on a journey which will take us to a world to come. As we pass through this life, understand how only a few will find the way which leads unto life eternal. To help you find your way God called and ordained from among men those whose life would be the ministry of Jesus Christ. He also established churches whose primary business would be the gospel and seeking the salvation of lost souls.

     This church and this pastor are no accident in your life. God is using both to influence and prepare you for the world to come. While this may be the anniversary celebration for the church and its founding pastor, know also how it is an opportunity for you to know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.

     Don't let this opportunity pass; for This Is The Hour Of Your Salvation.
