Christ Centered & Biblically Oriented
At Jackson First Baptist Church we are devoted to magnifying the Lord Jesus Christ in all that we do. Here, you will find that Jesus Christ is the center of our community. He is the Living Word of God, our Lord, our Great High Priest, the Author and Perfecter of our faith. He’s the reason we gather together, worship, and are known as a local Church.
You will find we are also a church under revealed authority, understanding Christ speaks to us today alone through the written word of God, which is entirely trustworthy in all matters. We hold that the Bible, those 66 books of Holy Scripture, are inspired, inerrant, authoritative, and wholly sufficient. We entrust ourselves to God’s voice as heard in the scriptures, holding to the traditional Protestant doctrine of Sola Scriptura, or Scripture Alone.
Traditional Worship Format
At Jackson First Baptist Church we have a Christ-centered, Spirit-lead worship service arranged in a traditional format. We believe the Bible is our guide for worship and that the Lord Himself presides over our service. Corporate song and prayer, the reading of Scripture, the Lord’s Supper and Baptism, and the preaching of God’s Word are key features in our time together during the Lord’s Day.
We believe worship is not about personal preference, an individual’s opinions, emotional experience, individualism, the traditions of men, or establishing our own righteousness. Rather, it is the people of God gathered as one body to honor, worship, love, enjoy, and praise the One who has redeemed us, the Son of God!
There are a variety of people from a variety of backgrounds who gather at Jackson FBC to worship. We don’t have a dress code, leaving it up the individual worshipper to prepare both outwardly and inwardly for worship. You will find suit jackets and t-shirts, slacks and blue jeans, but most importantly you will find God’s family gathered to worship the Lord Jesus Christ.
