Hope  For  The  Future

Jackson First Baptist is actively involved with the ministry of Hope for the Future in Malawi.  While we are blessed to support them financially, JFBC also has boots on the ground through multiple mission trips to Zomba and the surrounding villages.

It is time to make plans for our 2019 trips to Malawi.  If you are interested in joining our mission team, you can get more information at a meeting that will be held on November 25, in the Multi-Purpose Room immediately following the morning service.  Prayerfully consider joining us for this life changing opportunity.

Jackson FBC & Me

We joined FBC when we were a young married couple of 7 years and had 2 small children.  We prayed that God would put us where He wanted us so we would be able to grow spiritually and where our children would be loved and grow in the fundamentals of the Christian life.  Since we joined, we have had the joy of experiencing the love and compassion that helped our family to come to know Jesus better.  Wealth or other education could not have given them what they learned here as our church family nurtured them to love God and taught them how to grow into the strong Christian adults they are now.  We will forever be grateful to the ones who touched their lives........
