First Baptist Church has committed to minister to the Quilombola people of Brazil. The Quilombola people are descendants runaway slaves. During the slave trade, for every slave that came from the United States, seven went to Brazil. Many of these slaves ran away and created isolated communities in the jungle. They have remained isolated from the mainstream culture of Brazil. Our goal is to partner with Brazilian churches to minister to the spiritual and physical needs of this unreached people group. As a church, we take teams to help them accomplish their mission of spreading the gospel and helping the people of the area.
