First Free Will Baptist Church Jacksonville

First Free Will Baptist Church of Jacksonville is a warm, friendly church with a rich tradition in Jacksonville, North Carolina. The First Free Will Baptist Church was born out of a need to reach the rapidly growing Marine population in the area during the 1940’s. In 2004 we relocated to 919 Gum Branch Road. We maintain an active Sunday School for all age groups, an exciting midweek teaching program for all ages and a variety of ministry and recreational opportunities during the week. Jacksonville Christian Academy has been an integral part of our ministry since 1981. We encourage you to come and be a part of our ministry. Service times are listed below.
