First Baptist Church is committed to impacting the world beyond the walls of our building. We seek to share the love of Christ through community, state, national, and international ministries. We want to facilitate and enable God’s people to be obedient to our Great Commission task to reach the world with the love of Christ.  Our desire and our goal is: “To Spread Christ’s Love Everywhere”

 

We want to provide all people an opportunity to hear, understand, and respond to the gospel. We have embraced the Acts 1:8 challenge to be Christ’s witnesses throughout the world.

 

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8

First Baptist Church regularly leads local mission projects benefiting our community and proclaiming the love of Christ. Our people have been involved in international mission projects in Armenia (April 2009), China, Israel (April 2009), Mexico, Mongolia, The Philippines, Uganda & Vietnam (October 2008).

Some of our ongoing projects include our Bi-Monthly Military Care Packages, Annual City-Wide Clothing Giveaway, Baptist Children’s Home Clothing Ministry, Community Baby Needs Ministry & Benevolence Ministry through the Ministerial Alliance of Wynnewood.
