Our greatest desire is to glorify God by leading people to Christ.
Beacon has never aspired to be anything other than what Jesus called a “Church.” Our “meeting place” is a beautiful building located in Jupiter Farms. However, the building is not the church. The Bible defines a church as an assembly of believers banded together for evangelism, edification, and worship. We love our church because we love people.
At Beacon, the name "Baptist" identifies our heritage and our faith. We embrace scriptural principles as convictions, and do so without apology. These convictions include:
Doctrine and teaching is important. Here is what we believe:
We believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Bible. the Old and New Testament are fedinitely inspired word for word. The Scripture is the final authority in all matters of faith and practive. (2 Ti 3.16, 2 Pe 1.20)
God is a Person, eternally existing, as a Trinity in unity - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - three Persons and yet but one God. (De 6.4, Matt 28.19, 1 Co 8.6)
Jesus Christ, eternally existing, is the only begotten Son of God, Who became a man totally apart from sin, being conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, and is true God and true man. (Lk 1.30-35, Jn 1.1-15, Ph 2.5-8, Col 1.1-15)
Man was created in the image of God but fell through sin, bringing not only physical death but also spiritual death – separation from God. Now all mankind is totally depraved, having inherited a sinful nature, is bent toward sinning, and has become sinful in thought, word, and deed. (Genesis 1:26, 27; 2:16, 17; 3:6-19; Romans 3:10-23; 6:23)
The Lord Jesus Christ suffered and died as a substitutionary sacrifice for the sins of the whole world. He arose from the dead in the body in which He was crucified; He ascended into Heaven in the glorified body where He is seated at the right hand of God the Father as Head of the Church, making intercession for the Saints as our High Priest. (Luke 24; Acts 1:9-11; Romans 5:8-10; Ephesians 1:20-23; I Peter 3:18)
Man is lost and must be born again to enter the Kingdom of God. Salvation is by grace alone through personal faith in the finished work of Christ on the cross. (John 1:12; 3:3-7; Ephesians 2:8, 9)
The local church is a group of believers baptized by water, banded together for edification, exhortation, and evangelism as commanded by Christ in the Great Commission: preaching the Gospel to every creature. (Mark 16:15; I Corinthians 12:12; Ephesians 1:22, 23)
The Lord Jesus Christ Himself is coming again in the air at any moment to catch up His Church and to reward their service; the unbelievers left behind will go through a period called the tribulation, after which Christ shall return visibly to the earth to set up His Kingdom. (Matthew 24:29-42; I Thessalonians 4:16-18; Revelation 19:11-20:15)
Pastor Jim Blalock and his family came to Beacon Baptist Church in 1987. He began Pastoring the small congregation of Beacon Baptist Church that was located on Center St. in the heart of Jupiter. Year after year, the Lord has blessed the ministry of Beacon Baptist with not only growth in numbers but also the spiritual growth of believers through the faithful, Biblical preaching of God’s Word. The goal has always been to keep the Lord and the Bible at the center of every service and every ministry.
