MISSIONS

First Baptist Church of Marshville has a long history of valuing the importance of mission work and doing the work of the Great Commission. We support many agencies, organizations, and charities monetarily within our local community, our state, and also world-wide.  We also recognize the importance of giving of ourselves and our time to serve others...being the hands and feet of Jesus and sharing the Gospel.
Our Mission Committee works hard to provide opportunities for our congregation to serve. There are ways to participate in local mission programs serving those close by and there are also opportunities to take mission trips both nationally and internationally.  Perhaps this is the time for you to get involved!
