our purpose for giving

Deep in our hearts we all want to make a difference.  One way of bringing purpose to our lives is by helping and supporting activities that encourage and have impact on the lives of others. What we value is reflected through our choices about where we spend our time and resources.  

As a community of believers, our giving journey begins with reflecting on our values and then setting priorities for the purpose of allowing God to work through us to make a difference in our community and in the world.

We are grateful that you have chosen to learn about our programs and support the mission and people of First Baptist Church Jackson. By spreading the good news of God’s grace, and providing encouragement and hope, we are changing lives one person at a time.

Thank you for your gifts and tithes! We are excited to see what God will be able to do through you.

“So, let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.” 

2 Corinthians, 9:7-8
