About

Our Vision

First Presbyterian Church of Jackson exists to glorify God by making disciples on the North State Street corridor, in the greater Jackson area, and around the world.

What we must do...

1. "To glorify God"

Our chief end and deepest joy (WSC Q&A 1) is the exaltation of the Triune God of the Bible. In a narcissistic age, we exist to make much of God, seeking in all things to be and to gather true worshippers.

2. "by making disciples"

We purpose to reach, win, grow, equip, and deploy God’s people for the propagation of God’s glory throughout the world.

Where we have been called to do it...

3. "on the North State Street Corridor"

In His providence, God has placed us on the corner of North State and Pinehurst Streets, in central Jackson. We resolve to be good neighbors and gospel witnesses in the neighborhoods around our church campus (Belhaven, Mid-Town, and Fondren).

4. "in the greater Jackson area"

FPCJ draws visitors and members from the metro-Jackson area. We will continue to make disciples in our city by equipping believers to live for Christ in the home, the workplace, and in their neighborhoods across our region.

5. "and around the world."

North America: With a renewed focus on church planting in North America, FPCJ will make disciples across our country by establishing new churches and supporting, sending, and serving church planters. Globally: There remain 6,738 unreached people groups, over 42% of the global population.* In addition to other mission endeavors, we will begin to pray and work to support and establish gospel churches with special attention on the unreached.
