The culture of our services can be described as dynamic in preaching and passionate in worship


Our church is a refuge for people in need, as well as a launching point for those looking to serve.


In essesnce, we all share a common thread:

a passion to follow Jesus, to live as disciples, and share the life-changing Gospel


We invite you to come as you are and

join us on this exciting journey

Rev. James M. Jackson

Rev.  Charlie Moore

In 1981, I joined the Air Force and received orders to the Philippines where someone invited me to a Pentecostal church. It was there, at the age of 20, I received the baptism of the Holy Ghost and my calling to the ministry. Over the past 3 decades, I have held several positions throughout the Texas and South Texas Districts, but I am most esteemed to have been voted in as Pastor of First UPC San Antonio. On behalf of my wife Rose and my daughters Hannah and Ruth, we count it an honor to serve this church.

~ Bishop James M. Jackson

I remember clearly as if it were yesterday when God first called me to the ministry at the age of 13. Not knowing where to begin or how to answer the call, I linked with Godly men who invested time and knowledge into my life. We are most grateful to serve the families of the First United Pentecostal Church as Assistant Pastor. While majority of my time includes serving our local church, my first priority is to my beautiful wife Crystal and precious daughters Addilynn & Amelia. I am a sports enthusiast, avid reader and writer, and addicted to history.
