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).
As a church body, we have embraced the “Acts 1:8 Challenge”. We believe in a comprehensive missions’ strategy – leading our members to engage in intentional, worldwide, integrated, comprehensive, and year-round missions learning, prayer, giving, and going. Ultimately, we encourage and expect all our members to get personally involved in the Great Commission – spreading the Gospel message not only in our surrounding area - Jerusalem. but also in our State - Judea., our nation - Samaria., and our world - the ends of the earth...
We have a Missions Leadership Team which helps to guide and direct mission opportunities in each focus area. If you are interested in learning more about current mission projects and how you can become involved, contact one of these Focus Team Leaders.
• Jerusalem (local) Kathy Nowak and Gary Hardin
• Judea (Alabama) Theresa Frye and Cynthia Miller
• Samaria (National) Anita Nation and Janet Maddox
• Ends of the Earth (International) Richard Nix and Renee Williams
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 the Application helps our Missions Team to match individuals with projects that fit their area of interest or expertise. After your application is reviewed, a member of the project team will contact you with additional information and instructions.
