Welcome to International Friends From Around the World

Jackson, Mississippi welcomes international scholars and workers from around the world. At First Baptist Jackson, we offer a place for our international neighbors to learn the English Language, experience American culture, and most importantly learn more about Jesus Christ.

Connect to a Ministry

We value the cultures, religions, and personalities of people from other countries. We also want to share with you the happiness and joy we have experienced because of Jesus.
