The Great Commission is their primary mission of the New Testament church which is carried out both as a church corporately and by personal witness. The very fact that God chose us to spread the Gospel is an awesome privilege and responsibility! We will have many roles and responsibilities in life, but the primary work of every Christian is to fulfill the Great Commission – in our home, in our personal life, in our neighborhood, in our workplace, in our community ... and to the whole world. We have been entrusted to share the Good News of Christ! First Baptist Church has many mission related ministries which enable us to address all three strands of the Great Commission... evangelism, discipleship, and reaching out to the those in need. We recognize that the church is to now go do the work of Christ.
Born into privilege on a Virginia plantation, Charlotte Digges Moon was a smart, forceful woman who could have achieved most any goal. But God’s call focused Lottie’s life on sharing Christ’s love with China’s lost masses. For 37 years she endured hardship and danger in a land oppressed by famine, disease and war. In the end, she loved the Chinese people more than life itself, giving her own food to starving neighbors – eventually dying of starvation herself. Why are Southern Baptists’ international missions offering named for this early missionary? Throughout her career, Lottie wrote numerous letters home urging Southern Baptists to greater missions involvement and support. One of those letters, excerpted below, triggered Southern Baptists’ first offering for international missions in 1888 – enough to send three more missionaries to China.
“How many there are … who imagine that because Jesus paid it all, they need pay nothing, forgetting that the prime object of their salvation was that they should follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ in bringing back a lost world to God.” --Lottie Moon, Tengchow, China, Sept. 15, 1887.

Why we give to Annie Armstrong Easter Offering: To help our missionary force reach for Christ an estimated 244 million lost people in the United States and Canada; that's three of four people. 100% of the donations go to support our missionaries. Each year, we honor the life and work of Annie Walker Armstrong (1850-1938) when we give to the annual offering for home missions named after her. As a tireless servant of God and a contagious advocate and supporter of mission efforts throughout the world, Annie Armstrong led women to unite in mission endeavors that ultimately led to the formation of Woman’s Missionary Union, for which she served as the first corresponding secretary.
