Making reproducing disciples of Jesus Christ

Name Change

On April 13, 2016 the members of our church voted to change the name of our church from Truth Baptist Church to River Reach Baptist Church.  The name change was necessary to reduce confusion with another church in town with the same name.

The Process

Members of our church submitted new names for our church.  After a process of elimination our members voted to ratify River Reach Baptist Church as the new name for our church.

The Significance


An image of the tree/cross sprouting green leaves points us to the cross of Jesus Christ the source of all life and blessing (Isaiah 53:5; Galatians 6:14).


The image of a river is drawn from river of God’s grace in Psalm 1:3.

He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season
And its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers.

The blessed life is sustained by God’s grace.


God offers freely through Christ His grace to all men.  It is our desire to reach Jacksonville and the world with the message of God’s grace in Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:19).  To learn more about how to receive God’s grace click here.


The historical name that best defines the core of our doctrinal beliefs.


The incredible blessing of being a member of the body of Christ!  We invite you to join with us in believing, worshipping, and obeying our Lord Jesus Christ.
