Women's Ministry at FBC Jackson

 

It is our desire that how and what we do in women’s ministry aligns with the mission laid out by our pastors: Making, maturing, and multiplying disciples who are rooted in the gospel, watered with the Word, and nurtured by the church – for the bearing of much fruit, for the good of all nations, and for the glory of God.

Women's ministry - Purpose

The purpose of women's ministry at First Baptist Church is to:

 

Women's ministry - Values

We seek to incorporate these values into opportunities and events for the women of First Baptist:

  • Equip women to know and study the Bible
  • Teach and model application of biblical principles
  • Model and foster biblical, inter-generational, and intentional relationships with other women
  • Provide opportunities for women to practice and exercise their gifts.
 
  • The Word of God (teaching, studying, equipping)
  • Practical living in light of scripture in our unique contexts
  • Intergenerational relationships (all ages and stages of life)
  • Connection to our missionary partners
  • Food, fun, and fellowship

In the divided Kingdom, the Southern Kingdom, Judah, remained faithful to God. The Northern Kingdom, Israel, created its own worship system of idols and priests. For almost 200 years, God raised up prophets to turn Israel away from idolatry and back to Him. He raised up one last prophet to Israel: Hosea. Israel had played the harlot, committing spiritual adultery with the gods of other nations. What message would God give to Hosea to show then their sin? What method would God use to turn them back to Him? Click here for more info on this Bible Study.

Seeing is believing. If we want to know who Jesus is and why he is important to our lives, we need to take a closer look at what he said about himself. Jesus describes himself as the bread of life, the light of the world, the good shepherd, and more. His bold words invite us to behold him—and then to trust him. Whether you’ve never read the Bible, have followed Jesus for years, or find yourself somewhere in between, this 7-week Bible study will help you explore the question, Who is Jesus?, using the “I Am” statements in the Gospel of John.

Women's Events

 

Gatherings in the evening or on a Saturday morning provide an opportunity for food, fellowship, and learning from other women. These events typically focus on hearing from women within our own church body.

See topics from recent events.


Women's Retreats

 

During the winter, the women of First Baptist typically get away for an overnight retreat at the Linden Valley Baptist Conference Center for a time of worship, teaching, and fellowship.

See an overview of recent retreats.


Women's Conferences

 

As an alternative to getting away, conferences are periodically hosted at the church for the women of FBC.

See a list of recent conferences.
