"Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ."
- Galatians 6:2
The Outreach Ministry Team at First Baptist Church emphasizes the Great Commission in spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ to the unsaved, unchurched, and new families in the area. The Outreach Ministry Team of youth and adults meets Tuesday evenings, forms into pairs, and departs to visit families, many of whom have been contacted by staff personnel. In addition to offering salvation and inviting the family members to the First Baptist Church worship services and weekly activities, each team leaves an information packet that includes free tickets for FBC’s Wednesday evening dinners. As a result of honoring the Great Commission, the church is growing exponentially.
