First Baptist Church is involved in ministries locally and globally. We have education opportunities for all ages. We hope those education opportunities prepare and form us to participate in our mission work.
“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.
A few ways to be involved in mission work include the following:
- Aware Shelter
