First Baptist Church of Jackson invites people into relationship with God in Jesus Christ through healing, wholeness and home. (During transition, our mission is being reviewed and revised).
Our mission is to worship our Lord, to share the teachings of Jesus Christ, and to explore the power of the Holy Spirit. Our ministry is to serve Jesus Christ in our congregation, our community and our world.
We, the members of the First Baptist Church of Jackson, Michigan, experiencing the grace of God, the Father; accepting Jesus Christ, the Son, as Savior and Lord; relying on the guidance of the Spirit; and believing the Holy Scriptures to be our rule of faith and practice; joyfully and solemnly covenant:
- To seek a deeper relationship with God through prayer, Bible Study, personal growth and our support of each other;
- To provide for growth in discipleship through a comprehensive program of Christian education;
- To announce and to realize God’s free acceptance of us: by being ourselves, an accepting and affirming fellowship;
- To develop loving relationships with other individuals, classes, races, faiths and nations; aware that our neighbors are also God’s children.
- To involve our lives and our church in the needs of our community and the issues of the world;
- And to participate actively in the worship and ministry of the church by total commitment of what we are and have to God and Christ.
