We see Jacksonville Bible Church acting as a launching pad of God’s Word to the world, multiplying disciples in our church, planting churches in our region and sending missionaries throughout the globe.
We see a gathering of JBC that is reverent, enthusiastic, and thankful in our EXALTATION of the LORD, fervent and expectant in our prayers, and eager to hear the Word of God preached.
(Psalm 95; Isaiah 12; Acts 2:42; 17:11; Ephesians 3:20-21; 6:18; Colossians 4:2; Hebrews 12:28; 13:15; 1 Peter 2:9-10)
We see preaching and teaching of the Word of God that is faithful to the text, clear, and applicable, so JBC is EQUIPPED to mature spiritually: growing in the knowledge of Jesus, in Christ-like character, and in faith, hope, and love.
(1 Corinthians 13:13; Ephesians 4:11-16; 1 Thessalonians 1:2-3; 2 Timothy 2:15; 3:16-17; 1 John 4:7-11)
We see JBC willingly, generously, sacrificially, and cheerfully serving one another through the mutual EXCHANGE of resources and the faithful exercise of spiritual gifts, thus fulfilling the “one another” principles of Scripture.
(Romans 12:3-6a; 1 Corinthians 12:7; 2 Corinthians 8:12; 9:6-7; Hebrews 13:16; 1 John 3:16; 1 Peter 4:10-11)
We see JBC as a body of believers who EVANGELIZE and make disciples wherever they are through the bold and unashamed witness of the Gospel and our corporate testimony of love and unity.
(Matthew 28:19-20; John 13:34-35; Romans 10:14-15; Acts 1:8; 2 Timothy 4:1-5; 1 Peter 3:15)
We see JBC as a body full of faithful and qualified men of character who can be ENTRUSTED with church leadership.
(Acts 6:1-7; 1 Timothy 3:1-10; 5:22; 2 Timothy 2:2; Titus 1:5-9; 1 Peter 5:1-4)
