Founded in 1839, First Baptist Church has been a vital presence of God’s hope and grace in downtown Jackson for more than 180 years.

Our 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’re not perfect. While there’s room to grow, we should make time to listen. Sermons can be watched or listened to online throughout the week, because growth isn’t confined to one hour a week.
