Missions

“Mission” is a wide-ranging concept.  It implies all the varied work we undertake as individuals, churches, and organizations in applying our faith and in sharing the Gospel message with others.  Mission is an awesome invitation and responsibility, and an endeavor that can never be exhausted.  We undertake it realizing that only with God’s help can the immense task of Christian mission be accomplished.

First Baptist supports, through participation and monetary giving, those activities that address human needs of our community in conjunction with other local churches.
