Who We Are


In August of 1904, the Bank of Benoit was established in the heart of the Mississippi Delta. Since then it has maintained a strong commitment to local service. For over a hundred years that habit of service has been the steady mission of the Bank. In September 2020, the bank was reimagined as Genesis Bank with a goal of remembering who we are as a bank and using that mission of service to expand our reach outside of the Delta.

As the world has gotten faster and technology has gotten smarter, we find that what has been forgotten are people and their individual stories. As we have always known, people like for their banker to give them a chance to be heard and for their stories and lives to matter.


Thoughtful Advice.
Helpful Solutions.

Our mission is an old strategy that, over time, has been forgotten. We are in the listening and helping business. Simply put, our mission is to provide thoughtful financial advice and helpful financial solutions to every customer that we serve.


  1. Start and end with kindness.
  2. Listen while anticipating a solution.
  3. Be respectful in all situations.


Remember Who You Are

“Genesis” serves as a constant reminder of our need for God since the beginning of time to this very day.


Our Help and Our Shield

“Our soul waits for the Lord our help and our shield. For our heart is glad in him because we trust in his Holy name. Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in you.”

– Psalm 33:20-22
