WEST POINT, Miss. (WCBI) – The Stronghill Church in West Point worshipped in their new building Sunday morning.

Stronghill Baptist Church dedicated their newly constructed house of worship after 3 years of planning and building. The church has been around for over 100 years, and the new building will allow the congregation to continue to grow.

“The facility holds three or four times as many people as we had before- for the growth and the community. We want to bring something different to this community itself as a whole.,” says Deacon Edward Houston.

Israel Lee is the pastor of Stronghold Baptist Church.
