Missions

Every disciple going. Advancing the kingdom locally and abroad.

Proclaiming Jesus to all nations.

At First Baptist Church we are following Christ’s command from Matthew 28 that says “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations…” There are many ways in which we accomplish this mission.

Whether locally, nationally, or abroad there are plenty of opportunities for you to get involved in God’s mission to bring the Gospel to the lost in this world! 

PRAY

More to Go. More to Know.

Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.

Matthew 9:37-38

Ways to pray. 

Ask the Lord for more disciples to go on mission at home, work, at school, in the community, nationally, and to the ends of the earth. Where would he have you go? The harvest is plentiful. 

“therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” – Matthew 9:37-38

We need God’s power behind our words. Ask the Lord to give us the boldness to speak about Him with others. 

“and pray in my behalf, that speech may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel.” Ephesians 6:19

All around us, there are people who need to know Christ’s Love for them. Ask the Lord to show them their need for Him. 

– Neighbors
– Friends
– People in your community
– Specific People Groups around the world

We want to be a church that is continually sending its members near and far to show and share God’s love. Ask the Lord to provide open doors, safety, and provision for each mission.

Opportunities to go

Every Disciple going.

We are committed to the mission God has given us. We want every disciple in our church to live and share the good news. Whether locally or abroad there’s something for you. 

The Feed the Hungry program feeds the community one Saturday a month by grilling out in the church parking lot. It is led by church member, Ron Paul, and functions with the help of volunteers. Check the missions event section for upcoming dates. 

Encourage those new to our community. Get involved in the International Ministry. 

Help lead a bible club in a local school. 

Each year we support a variety of trips to places near and far. See our event postings or contact Todd for upcoming opportunities.
