Service Times:


11AM - FBC11

FBC Jacksonville is here to bring every heart closer to Christ, from the youngest baby to the oldest senior.

-Pastor Derek Staples




Engaging worship is a key part of every service at both our Eagle point and 7th Street Campuses.



Jesus said the greatest commandment was to love one another as ourselves, and the best way we can do that is by doing life together through small groups.

Community and Life Change


Our desire is to see our community come to know the love of Christ. For our community to see it, first our body of believers has to show it. That is why our heart as a church, at both campuses, is to serve our community. We have several ministries like For The City that give back to the families of Jacksonville in very tangible ways by providing food and other necessities on a regular basis.



Be the Church, Send the Church. Our aim is to lead people from any level of knowledge or stage of maturity to a place where they are: walking in repentance, living in the grace of God, able to learn and grow from scripture, depending on the power of the Holy Spirit within them, and carrying out the mission of advancing the Kingdom of God. 



– God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe.
– God eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
– Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and is co-equal with the Father.
– The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God.
– The Holy Spirit empowers and equips believers for Christian living.
– The Bible is God’s Word to us.
– People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character.
– Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty.
– Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ; the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity.
– All people will exist forever either in Heaven or Hell.
