2019 FBC JAX Passion Play is coming in April

The 2019 First Baptist Church Passion Play features a choir, cast and orchestra of over 400.  The title of this year’s presentation is “The Well” which tells the story of 4 women's adventure in Jerusalem and the transforming power of encountering Jesus face to face.  You may have seen passion plays before, but there is always something different at FBC: new costumes, stage sets, musical numbers, drama, and other surprises that are breathtaking.  Make a note on your calendar to attend one of the 5 times scheduled this year.

Now entering its 12th year, the FBC Passion Play has become an annual tradition at First Baptist Church, JAX.  The stage production features a choir, cast, and orchestra of more than 400 parishioners.  The Jacksonville Passion Plays amplify the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. 
Make plans to come early and enjoy the whole Passion Play experience including: the marketplace, petting zoo, and art show!  All activities are open 1 hour prior to the performance.
