Global Mission Opportunities

Global Missions

First Baptist’s Missions ministry involves mission education, short-term national trips, short-term international trips, and in some cases long-term mission involvement. Our Mission Statement is: "Our purpose is to sponsor, support, and develop mission opportunities for our church to share Jesus with the world resulting in changed hearts, renewed compassion and new callings to His service."

Each mission trip is weighed against this statement in order to maintain our focus. The mission ministry at First Baptist is involved in praying for and participation in sharing the gospel around the world. Our desire is to create a mindset for missions involvement in every believer's heart.

    Brazil 2020
    June 20-30

    The purpose of the trip is to give support to Primeira Igreja Batista in Cruz de Rebouças Igarassú-PERNAMBUCO. This church has a huge work in a very poor community. They need donations to buy computers for a computer lab they are building to teach the children of that community so they can have more opportunities in the future. We were also able to connect with a team of dentists that will provide free dental care for four days using a mobile clinic. Our work there will be to give support with evangelism. During the clinic hours we will do sport activities (with snacks) with the children and visitations bringing the Gospel to that community

    Uganda 2020
    June 25-July 5

    An American will team up with a Ugandan national and an interpreter (3-person team) to prayer-walk the area and evangelize the lost. As some folks become new believers we will meet at their homes with their gathered friends and family. These new believers aka Persons of Peace willingly open their homes to invite their friends and family over as together we share how they can come to know Christ too. At these homes we study God’s word, everyone is taught how to share their testimony and the gospel. We also practice sharing testimonies and gospel with each other in the gathered group to help believers become more confident and competent to do it on their own. We come back each day if possible to share another story about Jesus and how to grow in Him, learning how to be obedient to what Jesus tells us. After the Americans leave, the nationals will continue to train believers to be the transformed ambassadors Christ called them to be.

    Where will you stay? You will stay in comfortable hotels.

    Where will you eat? Meals will be in the hotel with locals.
