Missions are as broad and deep as your imagination will allow it to be. The World is huge! The need is Great! Our God is Awesome. He has chosen to use people to tell others of His love, His plan and His glory. He has a place for YOU and will use you if you will let Him! (93 year-old FBC member on mission.)
Deep roots. New growth. In the 1800’s FBC baptized Lottie Moon who became the first female missionary to Asia and we still have missionaries there today. We are passionate about the great commission and seek to go into our community, our country, and all the continents with the love of Christ.
I stepped WAY out of my comfort zone when I stepped off the plane on foreign mission for the first time. I cried every day I was there, but I also laughed and worshipped and prayed more than I thought possible! The experience changed my life forever. (An FBC Member on mission.)
Missions at FBC is not meant to be a one-time trip or service project – it is taking the gospel to places where there are people who have never understood it, and returning to disciple them. This might be people in our lives every day – where we live, shop, and work…or all the way across the world.
My first Mission Trip…was an eye-opening experience. It doesn’t take any special skills to share Jesus Love with others……anyone can be a missionary! (Another FBC member on mission.)
Our missions efforts – community, country, continents – are funded by gifts to our unified church budget. When we approve our church budget, we make commitments to ministry partners that we keep. The best way for you to support these ministry partners is through your regular gifts to our general fund. By so doing, you make it possible for us to always fully fund our promises. Come join us as we point generations to Jesus!
The first word of the great commission compels our obedience. It also translates into love for Jesus said – “If you love Me you will obey My commandments.” Going confirms both our obedience and love. Go with us. (One more FBC member on mission to share the love and power of Jesus Christ!)
We love this place! Our roots here are deep, and we know God put us here to serve this community through His good news. That means we love this community because God first loved us. We invite you to join in God’s mission through any of our community ministries & partners:

Beginning with Lottie Moon in the 1800’s we believe in intentionally investing lots of time, resources, and people into specific areas of the world. We’ve sent a family to Southeast Asia and supported them for two decades. We’ve sent a missionary all around the world with the Jesus Film Project for over a decade. We’ve been investing in Guatemala through our youth ministry for years and have just sent a family to the mission field there.
