From the Pastor
Our church's values are "Following Jesus, Loving Others like Jesus, Telling the World About Jesus." The mission trips go a long way toward "putting feet" to our words. Our church's missions program is using the Scripture Acts 1:8b as our theme.
"...and you will be My witness in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
We are to be like Jesus here at home, around our country and around the world. Many of you are already working in key mission efforts in the church and in the community. Some of you are involved in other mission efforts outside the Dickson area, and we rejoice and encourage you in your work. These new trips will allow some members to go on trips who have never gone on a national or international mission trip before.
Each will be exciting - come join us.
- Pastor Mike
One of leading missions of First Baptist Church is to make disciples of all peoples in fulfillment of the Great Commission... And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” - Matthew 28:18-20 (NASB)
Not only does the church support local missions and mission trips to other locations, a portion of every dollar you give to the church goes to the Southern Baptist Convention's Cooperative Program that supports the North American Mission Board, International Mission Board, the six Southern Baptist seminaries, the TN Baptist Children's Home, and many other worthwhile mission programs.
