From its birth in Acts 2 the church has been a missional body. Reaching others with the life giving message of Christ to the glory of God is the objective of the church. Missions is the natural outgrowth of a church in love with Jesus Christ. Because Jesus' heart beats for all peoples so must ours. At First Baptist Church our missions ministry begins in our "Jerusalem" - the City of Headland itself. From our Food Bank and Clothes Closet ministries to Vacation Bible School, school prayer walks and our monthly G.R.O.W. contacts the believers of First Baptist Church reach locally to those nearest us. In addition, First Baptist Church partners with other like-minded churches to serve in our region through WIRED (student missions), Carpenters for Christ (Men's construction missions) and other associational missions projects. Our own volunteer missions ministry also sponsors disaster relief and cross cultural missions trips. In missions we seek to emulate our Savior who crossed time, space and culture to reach and redeem us.
