In word and in deed...
In the missions efforts of First Baptist Church, we seek to proclaim Christ and live the Gospel in word and in deed. We have implemented this in our short-term mission trips by partnering with missionaries, indigenous local churches, and with other organizations. Each year more than 10% of our average weekly attendance leaves the country to be on mission in these ways. Our hope is to leverage their gifts, abilities, energies, talents, and resources to display the Gospel and to empower believers around the world. Our philosophy is to place ourselves in the service of local believers and to do our best in encouraging and strengthening their work.

In 2014, our church will join God working all across the globe. Specific groups will take trips, such as the High School Mexico Border Trip, College Hungary Church Planting Trip, Youth Choir New York Trip, and South Africa Scott Support Trip, and then open to the entire church, we have three trips this year:
