It all started when...You are never more like Jesus than when you are serving other people.  Every Christian has a mandate to use his/her skills and talents to serve the needs of others. On the mission field, we seek to serve those most in need. In all of our mission projects we seek to minister to the physical and spiritual needs of the people we come in contact with. That is exactly what Jesus did. In Acts 1:8, Jesus said:

But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.
— Acts 1:8

Scripture commands us to start at home and to go into all the world as witnesses for Christ. We at First Baptist Church take that command seriously and strive to obey it wherever we go. We believe that every Christian is called to go. We offer a variety of mission opportunities that anyone can participate in. We challenge every member to pray and obey in the area of missions that God leads them.

 To extend the ministry of our church across the street, around town, nationally, and around the world. Missions at FBCPC is about offering opportunities for all ages to engage their world with the gospel and love of Christ. We provide training, encouragement, and projects locally, nationally, and abroad.

You shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.
— Acts 1:8

International Missions

Brazil

First Baptist Church has committed to minister to the Quilombola people of Brazil. The Quilombola people are descendants of runaway slaves. During the slave trade, for every slave that came to 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.

For more information please contact David Flatt, Minister of Mission at dflatt@firstbaptistpc.com

Canada

The province of Québec Canada is a beautiful and unique place. It is beautiful because of it's location and it's French culture. It is unique in that it's people, the Québécois, are the most unreached people group in North America. Less than .06% are evangelical. In the 1960's we had a cultural revolution in the US. In Québec they had a cultural reveloution that included casting off the traditional church. As a result, most Québécois are growing up with little to no knowlege of God. 

 

Join us as we minister alongside pastors and workers who have a heart for these people - their people that God has given them. We can help them but also learn from them. Our culture is not far behind, we can learn how to minister to those who have not grown up in a spiritual bubble.
