Welcome to First Presbyterian Church of Jackson!
Welcome to the website of First Presbyterian Church, where we are actively seeking to grow in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and show God's presence in our lives through service to others. It is our mission to provide numerous and varied opportunities for people to encounter and reflect the life changing presence of Christ. We seek to do this through study and worship, fellowship and service, and we invite you to be a part of who we are becoming in Christ.
We have a rich heritage in this congregation, and we give thanks for those who have faithfully served here in the past. At the same time, we realize that God is calling us to a powerful, challenging ministry in the present - as God has been so gracious to us, so also we grow in that grace, and serve in love.
Enjoy the website, but don't stop here! Let this site introduce you to some of our ministries and services, then come and see them in action! There is a place for you here - a place to grow; a place to serve. We invite you to join us for Worship at 9:30 am and Sunday School for all ages at 10:45 am. Nursery care is provided for all church gatherings.
We're glad you're here online, and we hope to see you in person soon!

"Growing in Grace. Serving in Love."
Message from the Pastor
In his ministry and teaching, Jesus focused on many different ideas and concerns, but one thing he kept coming back to time and time again was the idea of committing one's life to God's Kingdom. His words still echo through the centuries:
-Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness...
-Take up your cross, and follow me...
-He who seeks to save his life must first lose it for my sake...
-Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's and unto God what is God's...
-Sell what you have and give it to the poor…
-The poor widow has put in all that she has…
-Thou shalt love the Lord your God with all your heart and soul and strength and mind…
As Christians, we are not called into a half-hearted association with God ... we are called to commit our lives, all that we are, unto God's Kingdom. So what is
Commitment is what transforms a promise into a reality. It is the words that speak boldly of our intentions, and the actions which speak louder than the words.
It is making the time when there is none, coming through time after time, year after year.
Commitment is the stuff character is made of. It is the power to change the face of things. It is the daily triumph of integrity over skepticism. We who are committed to the Kingdom of God make a positive difference in the world.
Things are better here because we give of our time and talent and money to make things better. Lives are saved, misery is relieved, children are fed, broken homes are restored, because we choose to make a difference through the way we live. That's commitment. That's the way God intends life to be lived.
Use this Stewardship Season as an opportunity to rethink your commitment to the Body of Christ. How have you chosen to make a difference?
