When Jesus presented the Great Commission (Matthew 26:20) to His disciples, He challenged them to share the Gospel with the entire world. God sent His Son on a mission of reconciliation and now His church should be sent on a mission of proclamation.
At First Baptist Church, we do not take the commands of our Savior lightly. We view missions through an Acts 1:8 perspective, where Jesus states, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Our first goal is to reach the community of Gray where God has placed us. However, we also work to reach our state, our nation, and our world so that all may see Jesus.
