Missions Philosophy 

We seek to be a missional church in all that we do. Our goal through our missions ministries at First Baptist is to answer our calling to serve God’s hurting people, particularly those who live on the “margins” of our society. We are also deeply concerned with building authentic relationships between communities and among God’s people. We are deeply committed to incarnating the love of God from the sanctuary to the street corner and everywhere in between.

We seek to be a missional church in all that we do. What is a missional church though? Dr. Daniel Vestal writes, “A missional church is one that incarnates the life and ministry of Jesus Christ and thus extends God’s mission in the world. It is filled with the Spirit so that it proclaims good news to the poor and release to the captives. It receives the unconditional love of God, so that it can reflect the unconditional love of God. It follows Jesus in personal and corporate life and practices the disciplines necessary to be followers. Then it invites others to follow Jesus as fellow disciples. It seeks the Kingdom of God and serves the Kingdom of God above all else. It is global in its vision and incarnational in its ministry. It embraces the suffering of people and identifies with the poor.”

RED TUBS

RED TUBS

Many local children depend on school-provided meals for nourishment. During Christmas Break, many children have gaps in their eating due to impoverished conditions. We want to provide as many meals as we can to help alleviate these hardships. Help us by filling a red tub full on non-perishable goods. 

 

Tubs will be distributed after worship service on November 13th. If you are not attending in-person worship and would like to pick up your red tub earlier, please call the church office any time after November 8th.
