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,
