Missions are one way we accomplish the last word in our our mission statement...Go! The Lord through His word the Bible commanded us to go and be His "witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth." (Acts 1:8) Our desire at First Baptist is to be faithful to our Lord and fulfill this command through our mission giving and through our mission service. It is the desire of our church to have individuals or groups from First Baptist continually on the mission field in short term, mid-term, or long-term missions. Our church still has much growing to do to truly carry out the full meaning of our Lord's command but through His grace, strength, and guidance we hope to bring some small bit of glory to His name.
The members of First Baptist church have served on missions in Douglas (our Jerusalem), in Georgia (our Judea), in the U.S. (our Samaria), and around the world. We believe no one is to young or to old to be involved in missions.
How can you be a part?
