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 glorify God and make Him known to everyone…everywhere.

At First Baptist Jacksonville, 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 in Nocatee. 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.
