Taking the name of Jesus to unreached people groups in India
God’s instrument to reach every tribe, tongue, people, and nation is the church. He gave His church a beautifully balanced command, the Great Commission. This is a call to make much of the name of Jesus both near and far. Therefore, it is our prayer and desire to take Him to “Our Neighbors and to the Nations.” God has gifted each of us uniquely and called all of us to play a part in this great mission through praying, giving, and going.
Prayer is the foundation of everything we do and shows our dependence on God to accomplish His plan and purpose in the world. Living a life of generosity through giving is the key to seeing the mission of God reach the ends of the Earth. And in order to see the Great Commission fulfilled, God's people must go and tell those around the world waiting to hear the Good News of the Gospel.
As you explore our website you will find opportunities to serve our neighbors on local ministry teams and one-day events as well as multiple week trips to the nations. Thank you for praying and seeking God’s will for your life as we, together, seek to know Him and make Him known to Our Neighbors and the Nations.
At First Baptist Church of Arnold, we believe that living a life of generosity is key to seeing the mission of God reach the ends of the earth. We recognize the generosity we have been shown by Jesus and this motivates us to give sacrificially so others can know the same grace we have experienced!
Our missions offering goes to support our partnerships all over the world. It has helped provide wells for villages in Africa, medical supplies for the sick in the slums of India, audio-recordings of God's Word in native heart languages, training for pastors and church planters, and much more. It also supports Annie Armstrong and Lottie Moon mission offerings and helps develop next generation leaders. Our prayer is that through your sacrificial giving, we would see people both here and around the world come to know the salvation of Jesus and bring glory to Him through their lives.
Our missions offering is given above and beyond your regular tithe and offering and goes to supports all of the partnerships and mission opportunities listed below. You can give by designating an amount to missions on your offering envelope, writing "missions offering" on your check, or choosing "missions offering" when you give online.
