First Baptist Church of Jackson

~ Welcome ~

What is it that you most want out of life?

For most of us, when life pushes us up against a wall, we want to be known and accepted by a loving family.We need to belong somewhere and to be part of a life-giving community.

First Baptist Church of Jackson is just such a faith community in which everyone is welcome and can explore faith in Jesus Christ.  God says to us, through the Prophet Isaiah,

“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.” (Isaiah 43:1)

At First Baptist, one can find nurture for the soul and a place of belonging with God and others. In all ministry programs and mission outreach, the congregation strives to bring Christ to families in the Jackson community and around the world. Individuals and families are strengthened through worship, prayer, serving together, learning about Christ, and supporting one another with love;

First Baptist Church of Jackson invites people into relationship with God in Jesus Christ through healing, wholeness and home. We invite you to visit!
