Learn More About Our Support for Missions

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations....
Matthew 28:19

Here at First Baptist, we believe that you enter the missions field by simply walking out your front door. Our community, state, country, and world is full of hurting people in need of the Good News of Jesus Christ. With this in mind, we at FBC, try to make a point to reach any and all for Christ's sake. Starting with our own community by doing outreach projects, VBS, and simple community helps. To outreach at the state and national level by giving of our time and resources through the Missouri Baptist Convention and Southern Baptist Conventions. We also reach out on a world level by giving through the SBC and a local outreach called Project Hope, which does evangelical missions and humanitarian relief in Nicaragua and Haiti.
