From the Pastor

Welcome to HAB!

For over 65 years, Hendricks Avenue Baptist Church (HAB) has been a place of grace and welcome for people from all over the city of Jacksonville as well as the entire First Coast.

A Place of Grace & Acceptance

The people of HAB strive to extend hospitality to each and every person believing that acceptance and welcome are at the heart of the Christian gospel. The people of HAB believe that the life of faith is a journey. We encourage each person to explore faith through engaging Bible study, thoughtful worship, and by providing an open atmosphere in which questions and struggles are treated with respect and love.

The people of HAB serve both the local and global community. The church is not an end in itself but rather provides a means for service to the world. You will find numerous avenues of service as part of the HAB experience. I’m glad to be in a place of acceptance and grace. Enjoy your visit to our website. We would love the opportunity to welcome you to our campus.
