We believe that missions is that part of the Great Commission (Matt. 28:19-20; Acts 1:8) in which Christians reach beyond the normal discipleship sphere of their own local church for the purpose of assisting in the proclamation of the gospel, the discipling of converts, the establishment and strengthening of indigenous local churches, and the development of Christian leaders.
Faith Baptist Church has a missions budget of over $290,000 for this year. An additional $60,000 is given to missions through special designations and missionary love offerings. Over $337,000 was given to missions last year.
Faith Baptist Church supports 64 missionaries, 4 Missionary Organizations and 2 Christian Camps. Of our 62 missionaries, 42 of them are either members or former members of Faith Baptist Church.
Recognizing the great benefit of short-term missions trips both to our missionaries and people, Faith Baptist participates in and/or sponsors several trips each year around the world with many of our members participating.
