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.”
Sunday School starts at 9:30 every Sunday morning. There are classes for everyone; preschool, children, students, singles, ladies, and men classes. Come and we will lead you to a class with people your age, interests, etc. You will be taught God’s Word to be applied in your daily walk by dedicated teachers.
Morning Worship (10:30 AM) is a cooperate service with music, praise, prayer, and God’s Word preached by Pastor Greg Crocker in the Sanctuary.
We have evening service (6:00 PM) in the Sanctuary much like the morning. We spend many months going verse by verse through the books of the Bible. Currently we are studying the book of Exodus.
Wednesday (6:45 PM) Prayer and Bible study in the Sanctuary.

Christ Life stickers ON SALE NOW!
A great way to spread a great message. The Christ Life stickers are on sale for
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.
