Missions – Acts 1:8
Our missions focus at First Baptist Church is global and based on Act 1:8, where we are called by Jesus to go to “Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and to the ends of the earth”. The great commission in Matthew 28:17 calls us to “go and make disciples of all the nations”. This Global focus includes local missions, Regional missions(statewide), National missions and foreign missions.
In 2015, we will have our first ever Missions Conference. The First weekend in March we will host David Horner, Senior Pastor at Providence Baptist Church in Raleigh, to preach on that Sunday morning. We will also host Missionaries from Belize and Guatemala to speak at events that weekend. Also, we are looking to the month of July to return to Belize and September to go back to Guatemala.
In 2014, two ministry teams traveled abroad. In July we sent a team to Belize and worked with Word of Life. In September we returned to Quetzaltenango to work with The Baptist Men on Mission at the medical facility they started back in 2010.
