Jonesville First Baptist Church = “A family growing, learning, and serving together through faith in Jesus Christ”
Our family is made up of many unique individuals, coming from diverse backgrounds with a variety of talents and gifts. We treasure the value, wisdom, and experience of our senior adults through the joy, hope, and excitement of our newborn babies.
Our main purpose is to praise, worship, and serve our loving God. We come together like one big extended family valuing the uniqueness of the individual. Regardless of our preference for suits and ties or blue jeans and T-shirts, we each have talents to share. We support each other with God’s love when members experience sadness and sorrow, and we celebrate with each other during times of joy and happiness.
We are a family because God has called us together to share our faith.
What to Expect From our Family:
What We Believe:
Together, we believe we are forgiven of past mistakes and failures. “God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8 N.I.V.)
We believe that through faith in Christ, we are promised a new and everlasting life with God.
“For God so loved the world that he gave His one Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16 N.I.V.) We believe that God’s amazing grace is greater than our sin.
We value the Holy Bible and use His scripture as the foundation for everything we do here at F.B.C.J.
We affirm that every person has direct access to God through prayer, and is called and gifted by God for ministry.
We commit our lives to the authentic worship of God.
We strive to follow the humble path of the Christian disciple.
We take the task of giving His love away to our community, and our world.
We believe our mission is to glorify God, proclaim hope, share our faith, minister to the spiritual and physical needs of believers and non-believers, to honor God and Christian living, in our community and our world.
“The people whom I formed for myself will declare my praise.” (Isaiah 43:21, N.I.V.)
