Missions and organizations supported by

First Baptist Church of Jackson

New mission!

First Baptist Church is excited to be host site for the Jackson Personal Care Ministry (JPCM) - providing personal needs items (such as shampoo, toilet paper, toothbrush/toothpaste and other items unable to be purchased with Bridge cards) to people in Jackson.

The JPCM is open each Thursday from 5 to 6:30 p.m. If you would like to collect/donate items for this ministry, please see listing in the left-hand column on this page.


"Mission" is a wide-ranging concept. It implies all the varied work we undertake as individuals, churches and organizations in applying our faith and in sharing the Gospel message with others. Mission is an awesome invitation and responsibility, and an endeavor that can never be exhausted. We undertake it realizing that only with God's help can the immense task of Christian mission be accomplished.

 First Baptist supports, through participation and monetary giving, those activities that address human needs of our community in conjunction with other local churches. A few ways to be involved in mission work include the following:

 Local Level

CROP Hunger Walk for Church World Service

Service at Immanuel Lutheran Food Pantry

Preparing Christmas Baskets for families in Jackson County 


Operation Christmas Child - Shoeboxes are collected and filled with candy, toys, clothing, etc., throughout the year and then shipped overseas to children in other countries. In addition, through its affiliation with American Baptist Churches, First Baptist supports many other missions on a state, national and world level.
