Acts 1:8

We participate in the mission of God to reach the nations for Christ by following the model provided in 

Acts 1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be my witnesses in Jerusalem (local), in all Judea and Samaria (regional), and to the ends of the earth (global). 

LOCAL: Our Jerusalem

We try to reach our local community with the gospel in a number of ways.

1. Intentional Evangelism

We have several outreach events each year where we meet our neighbors and share the gospel with them, including weekly visitation, and focused outreach on neighborhoods near our new church property.

2. Missional Living

We provide 3 “hands-on” mission opportunities that meet the immediate needs of our community. They are:

  • Food Pantry – every third Wednesday in our Mission’s House behind the Administrative Offices from 1:30 – 3:30 pm.
  • Clothes Closet – by appointment only via phone number870-932-4960. It is located in our Mission’s House behind the Administrative Offices.
  • Benevolence Ministry – every Thursday at 1:30 -3:30 pm in our Mission’s House behind the Administrative Offices.

3. Mission’s Emphasis Program

Our people have committed to give $10 a week, above their tithe to help send church members to do hands-on missions within the U.S. and to the rest of the world.

4. Evangelism by Serving

We look for tangible ways to love and serve our city. Whether it is participating in PTA meetings, helping out with community 5Ks, or serving in a local nursing home, we believe that we can demonstrate and share the gospel with people as we serve them.

REGIONAL: Our Judea, Samaria…

We support the North American Mission Board through our Cooperative Program giving and the annual Annie Armstrong Easter Offering and we partner with other Southern Baptist churches to reach the lost in our region of the world.

GLOBAL: Utter Most Parts of the World

We support the International Mission Board through our Cooperative Program giving and the annual Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. The IMB has 5,000+ missionaries around the world.

In addition to supporting global missions through the IMB, we also take mission trips every year to places like Kenya, Uganda, Honduras, etc.

Beyond this, we are currently developing a strategy to adopt an unreached people group, a people group that has little or no access to the gospel.
