First Baptist Church’s mission is to create a caring community where personal and spiritual needs are seen and attended to through the worship of God, Christ-centered fellowship, and service to others.
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.
