Our World

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.
