We are multi-cultural. We are Southern. Located in Jackson, Mississippi, Open Door is the only Mennonite Church USA congregation within a ninety mile radius. Open Door was founded as a multi-cultural church at a time when race mixing was still under debate within the body of Christ. We are black, white, and Native American. We welcome all as we are one in Christ.  We embrace hospitality, faith, family and community. Whoever you are, wherever you are, however you are, you are welcome at <a href="http://www.opendoor.us/">Open Door</a>.</p><p><strong>Service</strong><br></p><p>Jackson is the state capital of Mississippi and suffers from many of the maladies frequently found in urban centers: decaying infrastructure, capital flight, under-resourced public schools, elevated levels of poverty and crime. With a population of approximately 170,000, Jackson is the largest city in Mississippi.  <br></p>
