First Baptist Church has a long legacy of active involvement in missions in our community, our state, and our world.
Our church participates in the Cooperative Program of the Southern Baptist Convention, which provides missions funding to missionaries around the world.
We also give to a variety of other needs, including the Gregg Baptist Association, the Highway 80 Rescue Mission, East Texas Baptist University, Habitat for Humanity, and the Baptist Student Ministry of Kilgore College.
There are several ways that you can help with local missions:
GO -- Participate in a short- or long-term mission project by teaching, playing an instrument, working with youth, children, or preschoolers, or assisting with construction efforts.
PRAY-- Pray daily for world missions. Do a prayer walk around a mission site. Pray for the pastors of our mission churches.
GIVE-- Help provide additional resources for existing mission churches. Among those items most requested are pianos and other musical instruments, sound systems, copy machines, teaching aids, signs, or literature. Or you can make a financial gift to be used in securing land for buildings and property enhancement.
Two of our members, Gracie Blassingame and David Hampton) have offered their time and talents to assist in building a home in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity.
