Greetings to You All and Welcome to the Internet Home of
Jones Chapel Church.
I thank the Lord for his favor on this Ministry. We've yet to see how miraculously God is going to open up the windows of Heaven and favor will be our address. Let us grow together through the power of our living God.
As Pastor, my will is to do God's will. I don't claim to know all the answers, but I can promise you, we can find them together through the power of a living God. Here at Jones Chapel Church all people of goodwill are welcome. Our strength comes from the word of God as taught in the Holy Bible.
The example we follow is that of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We invite you to join us in our mission to feed the poor, clothe the naked, encourage the weak, heal the sick and wounded both in spirit and body.
We live in uncertain and troubling times. Almighty God has given each one of us special trials and challenges in our lives as he did with all of his servants, apostles, disciples and saints that he has placed on this earth since time began. The Good news is that almighty God is aware of your struggles, heartbreaks, disappointments and shortcoming and will assist you if you call on him.

Jones Chapel Missionary Baptist Church was organized in 1871. It started under a "bush harbor", which was just a shady spot in the brush. Reverend Jim Gardener was the first pastor and he remained in that stead until his death. Reverend Kit Christmas was named the new and second pastor, while the idea was formed to build a little wooden structure church.
Several years later, Reverend Christmas passed and Reverend Early Jones became the third pastor. Reverend Jones also remained in place until declining health relieved him of his duties.
The church went for an extended period without a pastor, yet the Lord's work continued to be done thanks to some strong Christian pioneers. led brothers: Bruce Baskett, William Foster, George Hawkins, Walter Hicks, and Roger Mayfield; Deacons: Osborne Currin, and Haywood Foster, along with others, we were able to build the the actual church we are in now.
Reverend James Fogg later became the fourth pastor. He led us for several years then he was replaced by Reverend Ronald Wheless. Reverend Wheless, our fifth pastor, served us well until he retired, at which point a Pulpit Search Committee was formed.
The Committee, led with prayer, worked diligently and through a church vote came up with our current pastor, Reverend Anthony Alston.
The committee members were Chairman: Wilton Baskett; Secretaries: Jacqueline Williams, and Karen Wright; Brothers: James Hawkins, and Douglas Jones; Sisters: Yvonne Alston, Susan Dortch, and Elizabeth Williams; Deacons: John, Foster George Hawkins, Randy Perry, and Walter Pugh, Reverend Alston, our sixth Pastor, is now leading us in this new area fueled with challenges.
We continue to grow in the Lord and truly believe that
THROUGH HIM ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!
All people of good will who choose to serve a God greater than themselves
