Who We Are



By the grace of Jesus Christ, we are called to worship God: to connect in community, to nurture in love, and to serve in the world.


Palms is a diverse and transformative community of believers embodying the grace of Christ by:

  • Serving as bridge builders for a divided world
  • Working as ambassadors for compassion and reconciliation
  • Growing servant leaders for God’s work in a rapidly changing world.


  • Compassion and Love – We nurture an open and inclusive environment that respects differences and welcomes everyone.
  • Spiritual Growth – We teach and practice lifelong spiritual growth.
  • Service and Connection – We are the body of Christ as we respond to the needs of others.
  • Creative Spirit – We joyfully embrace innovative approaches to God’s work.
  • Honesty and Integrity – We are open, trusting, and direct in our relationships


Over the years, Palms has kept the focus of being a community where a family could come to serve God together. Providing engaging worship, education for all ages, care for the whole range of the community and serving in Jacksonville Beach and the world, Palms seeks to serve God as a family of faith. Moving to our current location over 50 years ago, Palms updated its facilities to serve the church and the community better. As a community, Palms has always looked beyond itself into Gods’ world and has been instrumental in the formation of local mission organizations such as Pablo Towers, BEAM, Mission House, and Beaches Habitat.
