About Us

Our Purpose

The purpose of FBC Jacksonville, AR, is to lead people to Know, Grow, and Go!

As we study Scripture, we understand that we are called to make disciples who make disciples (Matthew 28:18-20). In Matthew 4:19, Jesus said, "Come, follow me, and I will make you fishers of men." As a result, our desires is for the following to happen:

  • Know - to follow Jesus ("Follow me")
  • Grow - to become like Jesus ("I will make you")
  • Go - call others to do the same ("fishers of men")
