“To glorify God by loving all people into a growing relationship
with Jesus Christ.”
(Matthew 22:36-40; Matthew 28:19-20)
We believe that we were created to know and to love God. And the reason why people feel so unsettled and broken in life is because they have been living their life separated and a part from the very God who gives life. We believe that Jesus was and is, God in the flesh, and in great love gave his life for us - went to the Cross - took our sin, absorbed God’s righteous wrath against our sin and bridged the gap between us and the Father. New life begins when we give our sin and lives to Jesus. It begins - when we accept the gospel message of Jesus and begin to LOVE GOD with all of our heart, mind, soul and strength.
Matthew 22:37-3, Romans 12:1
Love. That is the mark of a real follower of Jesus. We love each other. We’re friends with each other. We eat together. We’re with each other in the best of times and in the worst of times. Our members share with each other and do life together. We believe that we are not just called to believe but also to belong. You can’t be a spectator in the body of Christ, so our communities ought to be places where people know and are known!
At FBCjax, we are driven by God’s mission to bring Him glory by loving all people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe that God is the original Author and Master of creativity. Therefore, we will utilize every means possible to communicate the timeless and powerful truth of God’s love for all people. We believe that the real ministry isn’t just what happens inside our weekend worship services, but what happens outside the church through our people everyday. We believe there is not one square inch of our region that Jesus doesn’t want to declare as His!Eph. 3:10, Rom. 10:13-14
