Pastor Jeremy Wilson & Family

At eight years of age, Brother Jeremy trusted Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour.  By God’s Grace, he was raised in a Christian home and as a junior in high school surrendered to the call to preach and serve the Lord in full-time ministry.  Knowing God’s desire for his life, he enrolled in a large Bible College but while preparing to attend this college, God intervened and redirected his training.  It was through a Chalk Drawing Training Course that God allowed his path to cross with another pastor and through this man, God opened his eyes and heart to the doctrine of the Preservation of the Scriptures.  This redirected his goals.  Brother Jeremy subsequently enrolled in Blue Ridge Bible Institute of Valdese, North Carolina and graduated with a Bachelor of Divinity in 2001.

After serving as Associate Pastor for several years in an Independent Baptist Church in Louisiana, he felt God’s leading to start a local Bible Believing Baptist work in the Picayune area.

Brother Jeremy and his wife Jamey have four boys.  His favorite scripture verse is II Timothy 2:15: “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

Our History

In May of 2007, the first church service of Heritage Baptist Church was held on the second floor of Harrison Finance.  In August 2007, after having climbed fifty-one steps for each service at the Harrison Finance building, God opened the door to leasing a small storefront building on Goodyear Boulevard.

After several years of God’s blessings and growth of the ministry a "church building" became available for us in August of 2013.  Currently, we are now located in a little red brick church complete with classrooms, kitchen, nursery, and pews in the sanctuary.  We are excited about what God has done and invite you to join us as we grow.

In December of 2014, the church purchased almost 15 acres just outside of the city limits of Picayune!  We are currently working on completing building plans for our NEW HOME!  Come and join us in experiencing the blessings of the Lord here at Heritage Baptist Church. We are excited about the physical and spiritual growth that God is doing here!

Our Faith


The Bible Way to Heaven:


1. Recognize your condition

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
None of us is good enough to go to Heaven on our own merit. Because we are sinners, no matter how much good we do, we always fall short.

2. Realize the penalty for sin.

For the wages of sin is death… (Romans 6:23a)
Just as there are wages for good, there is punishment for wrong. The penalty for our sin is eternal death in a place called Hell.

3. Believe Christ died for you.

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)
Christ showed His great love for us when He died on the cross to pay our sin debt.

4. Trust Christ alone as your Saviour.

…but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23b)
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13)
Everlasting life is a gift purchased by the blood of Jesus and offered freely to those who call upon Him by faith.
