“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations…” Matthew 28:19
Jesus’ final commandment to his disciples before ascending into heaven was to make disciples of all nations. That is still true for every Christian today. Global missions – as we have come to call it – is our strategic and sincere effort to reach every person with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Partners in the Gospel
Thankfully, Jesus never intended for us to accomplish this task on our own. When writing to the church in Philippi, Paul thanks God for their partnership in the Gospel – and we follow that same model of partnership. Our church partners with individuals and organizations in order to maintain an ongoing and sustainable approach to share the Gospel. We take partnership in the Gospel seriously and are committed to support and pray for our partners as a church. Currently, FBCA is focusing our partnership efforts to reach Central Asia.
Whether they are working in Old Town Alexandria, or the streets of Moscow, we view our global mission partnerships through three strategic lenses (see below). These lenses give clear and achievable objectives to every activity and for every mission trip we send.
“We believe God has equipped FBCA to equip churches everywhere!”
