First Baptist Church of Jacksonville NCLove God. Love Each Other. Love Our World.

Belong Membership Class

You were designed by God to live in community with God’s people ~ the local church family. And that's exactly what First Baptist Jacksonville is intended to be - your spiritual family. A healthy family has common beliefs, purposes and commitments. That's why at FBCjax we want to share with you what we believe and where we're going as a Christ-focused community of faith.

As Christians, we are members of God’s household, his family, (Ephesians 2:19) called to function, participate, and minister in a particular place within the body of Christ. A healthy body requires that each member do its part well. A healthy church requires the same: members that are sacrificially committed and well equipped to do the works of service that God has called us to do (Ephesians 2:10; 4:12). First Baptist Church holds its members in high regard. Members function as the primary missionaries of the gospel to the culture and the primary ministers to each other in the church family. God has placed us in this city, among these people, in this century, for a reason (Acts 17:26¬27).

“For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them...” - Romans 12:3-8
