Shelton Baptist Church is a fellowship of baptized believers in Christ striving to be real disciples. We are loving, worshiping, and obeying God; sharing Christ; and equipping people for ministry.
Brief Church History
Shelton Baptist Church was formed on September 4, 1907 with sixteen charter members. The church took its name from the community it was to serve, Shelton, the name of a nerarby creek and local post office. During the first 100 years, the church erected two buildings for worship, educational space, pastor's home, and a family life center. We have more recently added an educational building with 10 classrooms.
Shelton Baptist Church is affiliated with the Jones County Baptist Assiciation, the Mississippi Baptist Convention, and the Southern Baptist Convention.
