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.” Matthew 28:18-20
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. God calls His disciples to make our requests known to Him in prayer (Phil. 4:6). Please commit to praying for our Missions Ministry.
- Pray for individual missionaries and missionary teams who commit to short-term mission trips and for their families.
- Pray for specific people groups and for the mission agencies which serve missionaries.
- Pray for more supporters of missions and for future missionaries to be raised up.
- Pray our missionary partners and mission teams have boldness, protection, good health, love for God, opportunities, grace, humbleness, mercy, wisdom, a healthy family, opportunities, joy, peace, and resources.
- Pray that God will use you in whatever way He wills.
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. You may give at the link below or designate World Missions on an offering envelope and place it in one of the foyer receptacles following the service.
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!
