Description of Organization

First Presbyterian Church of Jackson exists to glorify God by making disciples in our neighborhood, our communities, and the world. Our primary purpose and deepest joy is the worship and 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. We purpose to reach, win, grow, equip, and deploy God’s people for the propagation of the gospel throughout the world.

Our sister organizations, First Presbyterian Day School and Twin Lakes Camp and Conference Center, are central parts of our ministry. First Presbyterian Day School exists to plant seeds of Christlikeness in the hearts of children, pursue excellence in academics, and prepare students for future service in God's kingdom in their homes, churches, and professions. Twin Lakes camp and conference center was established to provide a center for spiritual nourishment and physical relaxation. Twin Lakes shares the gospel with hundreds of children each summer through summer camp and serves as a refuge for pastors and church organizations throughout the year.
