The mission of our church is to lead people of faith in Jesus Christ and to
equip people to live as servants devoted to Jesus Christ and His church.
At First Baptist, we want to define and exercise mission outreach in a
different way...reaching out to meet needs in our community and world, not
just in order to bring people in, but because the love and grace of God
compels us to do so. We want to meet needs for their own sake; because
that's what Jesus taught.
So what does this look like at First
Baptist Church? We have a number of ministries that reach out to those in
need. We partner with various community ministries in various ways; some
financial, some with our time and energy, and with some we partner for
special events, services, or projects. Some of these ministries include the
Calhoun County Jail, Safe Place, Youth Haven Ranch, Friendship House,
Habitat for Humanity, and Marshall Area Community Service (MACS). We work
together with the American Baptist Churches of Michigan to partner
with other American Baptist congregations, in order to support various
mission outreach is not "just talk," but is rather our way to engage
our "faith in action."
First Baptist Church uses our church
committees to carry out ministry to tangible and powerful ways. Please see
