First Baptist is committed to reaching as many people as possible with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
As a group of people who know the grace of God in our own lives, First Baptist desires to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ to all regardless of where they live. Jesus said in Matthew 28:18-20:
All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
Committing ourselves to this great commission, First Baptist follows the Acts 1:8 model:
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.
Our Jerusalem: The Greater Scott City Area
FBSC desires that everyone know about Jesus Christ. Whether it is telling a perfect stranger to speaking to our friends and family, we want everyone to love, know, and obey Jesus Christ because He is our Creator, Savior, Lord, and God.
Our Judea and Samaria: Southeast Missouri and North America
One of the main ways we share the good news of Jesus Christ is through the Cooperative Program. We are in friendly cooperation with the Cape Girardeau Baptist Association, the Missouri Baptist Convention, and the Southern Baptist Convention. Find out more about the Cooperative Program by watching the video below.
