And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
At First Baptist Church we take the Great Commission seriously and personally. Our children participate in mission’s education ministries such as Girls in Action and Level Up. We also offer Missions and Evangelism training throughout the year and develop mission engagement within our Student and Adult Bible study groups.
Not only do we support world missions in discipleship training and prayer, but also with our finances. Ten percent of our budget goes to support mission causes outside our own church. With this money, we help support vocational missionaries of the International Mission Board and the North American Mission Board. We support these missionaries through what we call the Cooperative Program of the Southern Baptist Convention. We also encourage people to give throughout the year to the FBC Forney World Missions Offering.
Finally, the desire of our church is for individuals to experience missions personally. We take annual mission trips to locations all over the world. We also encourage each of our Bible study groups to go and make disciples in our community through a local mission project. Join us in our desire to take the gospel of Jesus Christ to Forney, our State, our Country and the World for the glory of His name!
