This letter is from Paul and Timothy, who are Jesus Christ’s servants, and it is written to all of the people who live in Philippi who God has set apart by Jesus Christ along with your caretakers and servants.
I pray for grace and peace for you from God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ.
I thank my God because of all of my memories of you, always interceding on your behalf with joy in every one of my prayers. I pray for you with joy because of your partnership with the good news, from the very beginning until now. This gives me confidence that the one who started a good work in you will complete that work by the time of Jesus Christ’s return. (Philippians 1:1-6)

Here is another translation for comparison:
Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus, To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are at Philippi, with the overseers and deacons: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. (Philippians 1:1-6 ESV)
