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.”

We believe in supporting hurting people with our time and financial resources. During this time of great economic need in our community, we are encouraging members to give above and beyond their monthly gifts to the church by contributing to the Benevolence Fund. This money is being used to provide food, temporary housing, emergency gas and utility bills and other needs in our community.

Saturday

Snacks

 The Saturday Sacks program provides bags of food to underprivileged children at Westwood School that are food insecure. These sacks prevent weekend hunger for children that receive some of their only meals at school.  The food in the sacks is purchased from the Chattanooga Area Food Bank for pennies on the dollar. The program currently serves about 90 children per week.

 

Want to help package and distribute these snacks to local students? Contact Pamela McClure for info on packing days, or click the button below.
