The Bible teaches that the church –not just select individuals–but all the church is created to reflect the glory of God to the world. In fact, the Great Commission commands us all to go into all the world and share the good news of Jesus Christ with all peoples. That is the heartbeat of the Missions Ministry at FBC JAX. We exist to equip and encourage our church family to share the gospel with people. We want everyone to have a vision for reaching people for Christ globally, nationally, and right here in our community. The need is great, but we can all play a part. Everyone can PRAY, everyone can GIVE, and everyone can GO—whether it is across the street or across the globe. Won’t you join with us as we seek to push back the darkness by sharing the good news of Jesus Christ? We invite you to review the programs and mission opportunities below and see where God leads you to serve.
