A Word from Our Pastor

Good morning! Welcome to a Missions Emphasis Sunday!

Maybe today you ask…

Pastor, why did we go on mission trips?

And why do we do these mission things?

The answer is simply: We are trying to accomplish the incredible missionary task that Jesus

gave not only to us, but also to those very 1stChristians in the New Testament.

The truth is that you & I serve a missionary God. He is a God who sent His One & only Son so that

we might be saved. He came on “MISSION” for us!

Our missionary God gave to His missionary church a

missionary task that seems like mission impossible!

BUT…He is with us!

Today, let’s talk about First Baptist Church’s mission strategy!

He is Lord,

Pastor Danny

Do you know Jesus? It’s one thing to know facts about him, but to experience his love, wisdom, and guidance in your life is what it means to follow him.

The Word in your heart allows you to discover who you are in Christ, what He has called you to do, and how He empowers you to live the Christian life.
