What We Believe

See how we view God, Jesus, the Bible, man, and many significant aspects of our faith.
Firmly rooted in Scripture, our beliefs guide our decisions as a church.

Our Pastor, Mel Blackaby

The Lord has given me the great privilege of being the Senior Pastor of First Baptist Jonesboro. It is a calling that I take very seriously. I am convinced that God’s great salvation is intensely personal, but it was never meant to be private. It is my prayer that every person who walks onto our campus would feel the presence of God and the love of His people. And because we believe God is the one who adds people to our church, we receive them as a gift from God. So join us as we do Life Together.
