Oak Grove Baptist Church, 790 Phoenix Road, Bentonia, MS 39040, Pastor: 

Welcome to Our Church

Oak Grove Baptist Church is located in the Phoenix community six miles south of Hwy 3 on Phoenix Rd. We are a small church that loves one another and our community as well. Our mission at Oak Grove is to love God, love people, share Jesus, and make disciples. We would love for you to be a part of the ministries here at our church as we reach out to a lost and dying world that desperately needs Jesus.

In 1910, a mission from Hebron Baptist Church began in Phoenix. The group met regularly at a sawmill to study the word of God. Attendance began to grow along with a hunger for God’s word, and the group became so large that the community began to see a need for another Baptist Church in the Phoenix community. Land was quickly donated for a church to be erected, and the building project began in 1911 but was not completed until 1912. Mighty oak trees surrounded the building and the church was named Oak Grove Baptist Church. There were 38 founding members. Eventually they outgrew the church building and another was built in 1952.

That’s just a little information about our church. Again, we’d love to worship with you. We have Sunday school at 9:00 on Sunday mornings, worship at 10:00, and Sunday night Bible Study at 5:30 in our fellowship hall. We also have prayer meeting along with a youth and children’s program on Wednesday nights at 6:30. We’d love to see you!


In Christ,
