The purpose of Faith Baptist Church is to continue the work of Jesus Christ (Acts 1:1).
Another way of saying this is that “Our mission is the Great Commission” (Matthew 28:18-20). We want to reach people for Christ and teach them to follow Christ. We do this by following the pattern of the first church found in Acts 2:42-47.
God wants me to be a magnifier of His name.
“day by day continuing with one mind in the temple… praising God…”
God wants me to mature in my faith.
“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching…”
God wants me to be a member of His family.
“devoted to the fellowship… to the breaking of bread and to prayer…all the believers were together and had everything in common…they ate together with glad and sincere hearts…”
God wants me to be a messenger of His love.
“…added to their number daily those who were being saved…”
God wants me to be a minister of His grace.
“They gave to anyone as he had need.”
