Welcome to First Baptist Church of Atlantic Beach, the most unique church in the city of Jacksonville. A multi-family, multi-generational, multi-racial, and multi-cultural church; First Baptist is diverse, but one in service to God. A family church, which offers all ages the opportunity to come and grow in the Lord.
If you struggle with the same issue, I would like to invite you to join Jeff and me (Jean) for a special bible study and prayer meeting on Monday, August 1 at 7pm in the Fellowship Hall. I'm hoping that this will be a time for us to connect with and encourage each other.
Please feel free to forward this invitation to others who might want to join us – in or outside the church.
Come and paint with us! Cost is $35 to support our mission trip to Ecuador.
Come and have breakfast as we fellowship. It's always a fun time!
Location: Bob Evans at Beach and Hodges
Come enjoy hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and drinks provided by the church. Our youth will have a bake sale fundraiser to raise money for camp.
May 1 - Rev. Rick Baldwin
May 8 - Chaplan Shannon Skidmore

Ladies come and join us for a night of crafts and fellowship. We meet once a month every Friday night for good conversation and crafts.
Youth are available for window washing, unskilled lawn work, carpet shampooing, baseboard cleaning and other manual labor. Please see Jeff or Jean Backfisch to schedule your time.
We are starting a new ministry to reach out into the community to serve those in need in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This is an ongoing ministry that needs prayers and pantry items to help those in need and hurting.
If you would like to donate food items or clothing, please contact coordinator Duke and Betty.
Planted on Mayport Road and only two miles from the Mayport Naval Station allows First Baptist Church of Atlantic Beach the opportunity to minister to our heroic men and women of the armed forces. Pastored by Greg Crocker, a 21 year Navy Veteran, retiring as master chief, his experience gives him the insight and knowledge to lend a helping hand in the support of military families especially during deployments. First Baptist has many retirees and active duty families worshipping and serving the church and community.
Affiliated with the Jacksonville Baptist Association and the Southern Baptist Convention Pastor Crocker believes and preaches the entire Bible just as God gave it to us. The Baptist faith practices that the Word is inspired, inerrant, and infallible.
Our Worship Services
Life is full of turns, twists, and dead end roads. Many times we find in our lives that we just need a friendly face and a little help to know which way to go. At First Baptist Church, we want to be that friendly face and the help you need to navigate life's turns. Our ministries are designed to give clear, Biblical guidance to your family and your spiritual life in a warm family-style environment.
For a chance to dive deeper, let's get connected in a small group Bible study!
For more info on our small groups contact our Small groups director Ivan Bernard.
Sunday School starts at 9:30 every Sunday morning, but before that you can come over to our fellowship hall and have a cup of coffee and a light breakfast. There are small groups for everyone from babies to senior adults. You will be taught God's Word so it can be applied to your life as you go about your day.
Morning Worship (10:30 AM) is a blended service with music, praise, prayer, and God's Word preached by Pastor Greg Crocker in our Sanctuary.
We have evening service (6:00 PM) in the Sanctuary and our Pastor takes on a more in-depth study of the Bible, going verse by verse through different books of the Bible .
Wednesday (6:15 PM) Prayer and Bible study in the Sanctuary and our children meet in the Fellowship Hall for Bible Drills and the youth, known as the FLOCK (Future Leaders Of Christ's Kingdom), meet in the youth classroom.
First Baptist Church of Atlantic Beach - Over the past 64 years
From our humble beginnings as Wonderwood Baptist to our current location and name of First Baptist Church of Atlantic Beach.
First Baptist Church of Atlantic Beach believes in doing its part to fulfill the great commission Jesus gave us as he was ascending back to heaven. “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen”
God planted this church in Atlantic Beach and blessed us to be what we consider the most unique church in all of Jacksonville. Whether you are simply in the area visiting or looking for a church home, we invite you to come worship with us.
