Missions

In consideration of Christ’s call to worldwide ministry in Acts 1:8, First Baptist Church supports missionaries all over the world and sends out multiple mission teams each year. 
 
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and Judea and Samaria, and to all the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8

Kodiak Baptist Mission is dedicated to enabling children to make positive choices and decisions; providing opportunities to establish a spiritual foundation for their lives; and assisting families to live, work, and grow together in Christ. FBC sends a team each summer to work at the mission- helping with grounds keeping, facility upkeep, remodeling, children’s camps, lawn care, and any number of elbow grease jobs. Click here to learn more about Kodiak Baptist Mission. 
 
 

Mexico team- croppedZongozotla, Mexico

Through the Summer of 2016, FBC has sent a a team each summer to Zongozotla Mexico. On the 2014 trip, the team spent their time in many ways- working on the roof for the new sanctuary building at the local church, holding a VBS for about 50 kids per day, hosting daily ladies crafts, and a worship service each evening. Some played soccer and basket ball with the older kids and Uno with as many as could fit around the table. They enjoyed furthering the relationships that had previously been made. They made tortillas with the ladies & were allowed to try the more local food….mmmm delish! Not knowing if this would be their last trip to this village and knowing Pastor Josés wished to have the first service in the new sanctuary, they ended their visit with group prayer lead by Pastor José in the new sanctuary.
