Our Mission Outreach Programs

INTENTIONAL • WORLDWIDE • INTEGRATED

At First Baptist Centre we are deeply-invested in missions. We use Acts 1:8 as our guide: “The Holy Spirit . . . will give you power. Then you will tell everyone about me in Jerusalem, in all Judea, in Samaria, and everywhere in the world” (CEV). We believe in a comprehensive missions’ strategy where our members engage in intentional, worldwide, integrated, comprehensive, and year-round missions learning, prayer, giving, and going. Ultimately, we encourage and expect of all our members to get personally involved in the "Great Commission" by spreading the Gospel message all over the world.


HOW TO GET INVOLVED

Once you have identified the focus area or project that you are interested in, the next step is to complete a Missions Participant Application (a Google Form) and corresponding signature pages (obtain from Church Office). The information you provide on this application helps our Missions Team match you with projects that fit your area of interest or expertise. After your application is reviewed, a member of the missions project team will contact you with additional information and instructions.
