Welcome to the website of Truth Baptist Church. Truth Baptist is located at 1221 Shackleton Road in the Arlington area of Jacksonville, FL. Truth Baptist Church was established from a small bible study group meeting at the home of Pastor Carter’s parents. The church had its first service in a storefront located at 6035 Ft. Caroline Road on April 16th 2000. Within 2 years of our first service, the church found a permanent church home at our current location.
Truth Baptist Church is an Independent Fundamental Baptist Church. By Independent we mean that we are autonomous (self-governing). We do not answer to any board or governing body. Our church answers to the headship of the Lord Jesus Christ. By Fundamental we mean we abide by the fundamental teachings of the Bible. This includes the Deity of Christ, the Godhead (Trinity), the Virgin Birth, the Physical Blood Sacrifice of Jesus, His Sinless life, Christ’s Death upon the cross, His Burial and Bodily Resurrection, Salvation by grace through faith Without Works, a Hell that burns with fire, a Literal Heaven, the Eternal Punishment of the Damned and other fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith. By Baptist we mean that we hold to the traditional, conservative teachings of the scripture for which Baptist have historically stood.
