Black, white congregations unite in Jackson

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A few area churches hope to help solve the crime problem through extending a hand of friendship.

On Saturday morning, the Word of Christ Ministry of Jackson joined Liberty Baptist Church of Flowood and Ridgecrest Baptist Church of Madison. Men, women and teens joined hands and prayed, then took part in an outreach in different West Jackson neighborhoods.

The goal was to bring together churches with black and white congregations, to spread the message of unity.

"There have been many reports of negative things in the City of Jackson. God has given us a vision to go out to the highways and byways, compel men and women to come to his Son that they would have peace in their hearts," says Pastor Devon Adams of Word of Christ Ministries. 

Organizers hoped to knock on as many as 2,500 doors today. @
