Acts 1:8 Challenge
In fulfillment of Jesus' command in Acts 1:8 to be His witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth, First Baptist has sought to intentionally form mission partnerships on a local, national, and international level and thereby take the gospel to those who have never heard.
LOCAL MISSIONS: In addition to housing a clothes closet, we have partnered with Open Hands Food Pantry and the L.I.G.H.T. Center in an effort to minister in the name of Christ to persons' physical needs here in the community.
NATIONAL MISSIONS: As part of SEND North America, First Baptist has partnered with a North American Mission Board approved church planter in starting a church in Carroll, Ohio. In addition to providing monthly financial support, mission teams from First Baptist are periodically sent to help with community outreach in the greater Columbus area.
INTERNATIONAL MISSIONS: As part of CALL TO EMBRACE, First Baptist has adopted an unengaged, unreached people group: the Bengali Diaspora. It is our hope that by working in tandem with members from our church who serve as missionaries with the International Mission Board that the gospel can be taken to those who have never heard the name of Jesus.
