FBC is a very outwardly focused church. We believe the great commission, which was given to us by Christ himself, is a format for how we should approach outreach and evangelism. He gives us the command to reach out to Jerusalem (local), Judea (regional), Samaria (national), and the uttermost parts of the earth (global).
We reach out locally through the the following ministries of our church. Driven Student Ministries and our Children's Department make connections with families by challenging students to rise above societal expectations and live the life that called us to. Our Missional Communities are weekly in-home Bible studies that take place on Sunday evenings to connect the families of our church with one another in order to build stronger bonds of family and friendship in the process of creating disciples to impact the world around us with love and compassion.
We reach out regionally through our para-church ministries. These include A Veteran's Best Friend, which reaches out to military veterans, and Hope for Humanity, which provides assistance to underprivileged school aged children and their families by working with area schools. You can find more information about these ministries HERE.
We reach out nationally by sending out multiple missions teams each year for North American Missions. We have recently sent workers to Missouri, Louisiana, Georgia, Wyoming, New York, Kansas, and Montana. Some of these opportunities have been one time missions and others are multi-year arrangements with other churches. We have also sent out church planters who are working in Arkansas and Washington.
We reach out internationally both by the sending of individual missionaries to and by working with Operation Christmas Child. You can find more information on OCC HERE. Our missionaries have been in Honduras, Ecuador, and Mexico most recently.
In conjunction with these things, FBC is also pleased to support the Southern Baptist Convention's Cooperative Program and to work with Samaritan's Purse Disaster Relief, with several from our body working as year round volunteers.
