Scarnecchia Family


Almost 3 years ago, my wife and I felt God calling us to plant a church near a major city on the East Coast. Around that time, the lead pastor of Hibernia Baptist Church in Fleming Island, FL called us asking if we would be interested in planting a church. After prayer and counsel, Erin and I believed God was calling us to start a life-giving church somewhere in the Jacksonville area.

God stirred our hearts for the St. Johns County community. Thousands of families are moving to this area from all over the country. We believe God wants us to plant Mission City for His glory in reaching people with the gospel and helping them become followers of Jesus.


Teach and apply the Bible.

We are committed to teaching the Bible because we believe it is the absolute truth and God's final authority. The more we know His Word the more we can experience the new life we have in Christ. (1 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:3)

Love God and love people.

Jesus said the greatest commandment is to love God and love people (Matt. 22:37-40). We gather together to demonstrate love to one another and to those who are far from God. We want people to see the love of God on display in us and the good news of Jesus lived out through us.

Develop leaders.

We strive to develop leaders who follow Jesus and know how to inspire and develop others to follow Him. We want to be a church that equips people to live out their calling to influence and impact people for God's Kingdom. (Matt. 4:19; 2 Tim. 2:2)

Live on mission.

We are passionate about seeing people live on mission for the gospel in every area of their life. We want to mobilize believers in Jesus to take the gospel to every person around us.
