Our Pastor

Dr. Douglas R. Jackson has been pastor of Community Baptist Church in Saginaw, Michigan since 1978. Under his ministry, the church has had considerable growth. In 1981, Dr. Jackson founded the Community Baptist Christian School.

Dr. Jackson loves the Lord with his whole heart and has a burning desire to see the cause of Christ furthered. He has an enthusiastic, dynamic style of preaching that God has used to challenge all ages. 

Pastor Jackson graduated in the first four-year graduating class in 1972 from Maranatha Baptist University in Watertown, Wisconsin. Pastor Jackson serves on several boards including: Maranatha Baptist University; Michigan Association of Christian Schools (M.A.C.S.); Baptist World Missions; and Independent Fundamental Baptist Fellowship of Michigan.

His wife Kathy is an integral part of the ministry at Community Baptist. Kathy teaches Sunday School, counsels ladies, and is an Art teacher at Community Baptist Christian School. Mrs. Jackson is widely used as an inspiring Ladies conference speaker and Black Light Chalk artist. They have 3 children - twin daughters, Kristina who is serving at Camp CoBeAc as Office Manager for her husband Aaron Wilson, and Katrina who teaches secondary classes at CBCS. Their 34 year old son Clint, born with Down Syndrome, is involved in various ministries at Community Baptist through preaching, ushering, greeting, and hospital visitation.

A note from Pastor:

Community Baptist Church has been richly blessed by God. It is my desire to instruct and inspire people to develop a heart for God. Our church has a warm friendly spirit that helps visitors feel welcome. Please consider visiting one of our services on Sunday or Wednesday.

In Christ,

     Pastor Jackson
