About Dinsmore Baptist Church


Welcome to Dinsmore Baptist Church!

We are so excited to have you worship with us. We are a congregation that was established in 1886.
Over the years, our church has been a beacon of light in the Jacksonville area.


What We Believe at Dinsmore Baptist Church

We stand firm that Jesus Christ is God's Son. Jesus was born of a virgin and sent to earth to be our Savior and Lord. He died on the cross for all mans' sins. He was buried and on the third day he rose from the dead.

As the Bible says: If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. -Romans 10:9

The core Biblical truth that we stand on as a congregation is the scripture that say: Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. -John 14:16

We believe that the Bible is the infallible Word of God. Everything that is written in the scriptures are true.


All Are Welcomed

Our doors are open to all those that want to attend. We have seen tremendous growth in our congregation over the years. It is our goal to provide an environment where you can come and worship God with like-minded believers.

We Want to Reach the World Around Us

It is highly important to us as believers of the Gospel to be obedient to the call that God has for us. We are actively seeking out ways to make disciples and reach those in the world around us.

Our vision includes getting outside of our church doors and going out to the neighboring community on a regular basis. We also have an international missions emphasis in which we go across the world to minister to those in need.

We hope you will join us each week and find ways to get plugged into our ministries.
