Thank you so much for visiting our web site.  We are very interested in meeting new friends and in prayerfully making a positive impression on them for Jesus Christ. Here at First Baptist Church West Jacksonville, our mission is to offer opportunities for serious, consistent spiritual growth and serve as an ongoing “Training Ground For Christian Living.”

We are a Southern Baptist Church that believes in traditional workship, meaning we unashamedly preach and teach the Bible as God’s Holy, inerrant Word. We also sing the great hymns of faith as well as evangelistic southern gospel music. As a young church, founded in November of 2009, we are gradually expanding our opportunities for worship and will continue to do as God leads.

Leanne and I have been in the ministry for 47 years and are thankful that God is allowing us to pour all of those years of experience into this new work; We are so blessed to be a part of such a sweet, precious fellowship of believers who are serious about their walk with the Lord and in leading others to Christ.

So friend, if you are in view of a new church home, I encourage you to visit with us on any Sunday for Sunday School at 9:00 AM, Morning Worship at 10:00 AM, or both.  We also meet on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 PM for our mid-week Bible Study and Prayertime.

Please know we are sincerely interested in you and your spiritual life and encourage you to “Come and See” what God is doing and how He is leading and blessing our fellowship of believers.  If God leads you into our church family, I promise you will not be disappointed and you and your family will be loved and cared for like never before. We have a great vision for our future and would love for you to be a part of God’s plan for our church. Blessings beyond measure!
