What a privilege to serve the First Baptist Church of Jacksonville, Texas.
For those uncertain about their eternal destinies, I encourage them to consider biblical teaching that, while all people are sinners and deserve eternal punishment, God's gift of eternal life is offered freely through His Son, Jesus Christ (Romans 3:23 and 6:23). Eternal life is a gracious gift from God through faith and not by works of righteousness that people do (Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 3:5). Once a person receives that gift personally, he or she should then begin living a life that reflects his or her gratitude by following Christ as Lord of his or her life and repenting/turning from sin.
I extend a warm welcome to anyone interested in finding a church with friendly people and a growing desire to follow the Lord. Please feel free to attend any of our services, or contact the church office for more information.
