About New Hope Baptist Church

NHBC is a rural church in Marion County, Mississippi. In the aftermath of COVID, the goal has been to reboot the church programming with an eye on the gospel & future.

We are seeking someone who has an undeniable call from God to work toward building Christ's Kingdom through prayer, worship, evangelism, discipleship, ministry, fellowship, and missions.

NHBC is a very loving, stable, and caring church family. Presently, we have 2-morning services (Classic & Contemporary) to reach people with the gospel. The Small Group ministry is just getting started along with the Soup Kitchen (named "The Upper Room"), and we are waiting to see where God leads us. Making a Kingdom impact is our goal.
