House of Hope
An acts 1:8 mission of seminary baptist church
As a part of our Acts 1:8 Mission Strategy, a group of our church members have been actively involved in a needs-based ministry for our community. The House of Hope has been officially recognized as a standing mission of our church. The target group of the mission includes single moms, elderly people on fixed incomes, victims of house fires as well as many others.
Love is action
14 What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? 15 Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to him, "Go I wish you well; keep warm and well fed," but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is DEAD.
The House of Hope is fully staffed by volunteers from the Seminary Baptist Church family. Since its' inception, these volunteers have been meeting the needs of people by providing school supplies, school uniforms and food. It is our goal to recognize and meet other needs in our community as this mission grows. It is our hope that by meeting the physical needs of those in our community we can then establish relationships to share the Good News of the Gospel and grow God's kingdom.
We encourage you to be a part of the House of Hope by praying, volunteering your time, or sharing your resources. For more information about how you can be involved, contact the church office (601) 722-3248.

God made it possible for us to acquire the McDonald House and property in 2015. Since we acquired it, we have been praying about how God would have us to use this property for the sake of building His kingdom. The facility will be used to expand our Small Group Bible Study (Sunday School) Ministry but we also want to use it in a way that will assist us in accomplishing our Acts 1:8 Mission Strategy as well. We have chosen the name Mercy House to identify this property and its mission.
Mercy House exists to demonstrate the love, grace and mercy of God by providing programs that will reach individuals, families, and our community. Our desire is that the Mercy House be a place where love and grace abound!
Mercy House began offering a biblically based Recovery Support Group meeting on Tuesday nights in May of 2016. This recovery group continues to meet as a part of our weekly Discipleship Quest Ministry on Sunday evenings @ 5:00 p.m.
Our prayer is that this God will use the ministry of Mercy House to set many captives free!
