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.
Planted on Mayport Road within two miles of 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 Rev Greg Crocker, a 21 year Navy Veteran, retiring as a Command Master Chief his experience enables the church to reach out and support all military families. 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 preaches the Bible in the context that it is written. We believe that the Word is inspired, inerrant, and infallible.

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 therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
We are the most unique church in all of Jacksonville. Our doors are opened to everyone with a desire to worship God. If you are in the area visiting or looking for a church home, we invite you to come worship with us.
