I welcome you on behalf of the East Mississippi Baptist State Convention of Mississippi to our website. As newly elected president of this Convention, I look forward to sharing with you in the days to come the exciting path in which the people of God will embark upon.
We are very grateful for the ground work and foundation that has been laid before us and we are excitedly moving forward in the work which will be produced in us by our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ. To further add to this statement, James Hudson Taylor (English missionary and founder of the China Inland Mission) once stated, “I used to ask God to help me. Then I asked if I might help Him. I ended up by asking Him to do His work through me.”
It is our desire that you will visit the website on a regular basis and that it will help to keep you informed of the latest Convention FYI! It is . . .
In His name,
Rev. Willie E. Jones, President
