About us

A Place Of Love And Inspiration…

South Jacksonville Presbyterian Church is an urban congregation located in San Marco Square in Jacksonville, Florida. Our congregation’s rich history began in 1913 in the small Florida town of South Jacksonville. SJPC is a place of love and inspiration in the twenty-first Century and has a dynamic future.

We are a part of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and in the Presbytery of St. Augustine. The Presbytery of St. Augustine has 63 churches with nearly 20,000 congregational members in the surrounding counties of Northeast Florida.

As faithful followers of Jesus Christ, SJPC’s mission is: “to proclaim His gospel, to pray and to study His Word, and to share His love with others.”

Presbyterians have a form of government that stresses the active, representational leadership of both church members and pastors. Every member has an opportunity to be involved in the ministry of the church and our outreach programs. Both men and women in the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. serve as ordained pastors, elders and deacons.
