Gary and Dena Pate (missionaries we sponsor), are doing a mighty work of the Lord in Ecuador among people who do not have the Gospel, especially the children. The Pate's are in need of new tires for their truck so they can travel to these remote villages. They have raised nearly half of the $900 cost. But they need to get the tires soon so they don't get fined by the police if they get stopped. If you would like to make a single donation, visit their website. They are a nonprofit and a wonderful team. No amount is too small. www.pateministries.org You can also give this Sunday and designate it for "Pate Ministry Tires". Bring a dollar and give to them. Gary said if all the churches that sponsor them and their members gave $1, it would easily cover the cost of the tires.

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 (5:00 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.

This idea came about by seeing other secular stickers dealing with a variety of worldly ideas, my son Jason and I started designing window decals to get Christians to be vocal in a dark world. I wish I could tell you that it was a bright light revelation to me, but one day I was driving and it just came to me. I know that God revealed it to me, but that is how simple it was for me to come up with the idea. Our goal is for Christians to purchase these so we can tell the world that there is a great life out there and it all happens when we belong to Christ and live the Christ life.
“It's just what we do: we believe, trust, and live our lives for Jesus Christ each and every day, 24/7. It's a Christ Life”
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.
