About Us

Welcome to First Baptist Church of Jackson!

Our desire is to know Jesus, to be salt and light in our community and make His message known (Matthew 5:13-16). Come, explore faith, find nurture for the soul and a place of belonging.

Founded in 1839, First Baptist Church has been a vital presence of God’s hope and grace in downtown Jackson for more than 170 years. From the corner of South Jackson and Cortland Streets, the congregation continues to live this legacy through mission and outreach to the community.

First Baptist is a place to be known by God and friends.  Worship with us!  All are welcome here!
