We have a growing conviction that the church must be actively going into our community with the gospel to make disciples. Our focus is on community involvement with gospel intentionality, meaning that it's the love of Christ that compels us to come alongside the needs of the people in our city and neighborhoods. Through words and deeds we display Christ's love so that others might know Him.
We have strategic partnerships in areas of Jacksonville including schools, public health and safety, the homeless and needy, youth and family, foster care, and more. We also sponsor four churches: Southside Karen Baptist Church and Immersion Fellowship in Jacksonville; Grace Alive in Orlando, FL; and Hamilton Fellowships in Toronto, Canada. Read more about each of these churches below (see our international missions page for more about Hamilton Fellowships).
We prayerfully support these various partnerships and seek to present opportunities for our church family and community to build genuine friendships within our city and share the good news of Christ.
