Our Story


For more than 175 years, First Baptist Church of Jacksonville has been sharing and showing the gospel of Jesus Christ to Jacksonville and the surrounding communities. In fact, our mission is to reach all of Jacksonville with all of Jesus for all of life.

At First Baptist, you will find sound, Biblical teaching and preaching, age-appropriate programming, a variety of ministry and discipleship opportunities, and dynamic worship. We have two campuses: the Downtown Campus in the heart of the city and the Nocatee Campus, located 30 miles south in the growing Nocatee area. No matter your season of life, your area of town, or your faith background, we have a place for you!

We invite you to explore our website, connect with us on social media, and join us for worship or an upcoming event. If you have any questions about our church, please contact us here or you can click here to plan a visit. We welcome the chance to meet and minister to you and your family.
