Gospel-Centered Missions

First Baptist Church is a missions-minded church.  

We believe in fulfilling the Great Commission at home within our own individual spheres of influence – where we work, play, shop, dine, and live.

We believe in coming alongside local para-church ministries as they serve and provide for people in West Michigan.

We believe in participating in short-term vision trips that allow us to use our God-given talents, skills, and abilities outside our immediate range of impact and help us open our eyes to see clearly God at work around the world and experience the diverse cultures he has created.

And we believe in being strong partners with our missionaries who God has called to teach, heal, train, construct, and serve all around the world for the purpose of spreading the Gospel.

Partnering with our missionaries includes supporting them financially, through prayer, and with encouraging words and actions.  We want them to have the physical means they need to go, the spiritual courage and insight they need to be effective, and the mental and emotional wellbeing they need in order to endure and thrive.
