Missions is the heart of everything we do here at First Baptist because we believe it was the focus of the life of Jesus Christ. This is evident from the budget in which almost 25% of all funds go to specific mission causes during the calendar year. There are plenty of opportunities through which you can make an impact!
Mission Projects during the year include, but are not limited to:
FBCL is a leader in mission gifts to:
- The cooperative efforts of the Texas & Southern Baptist Conventions & Gregg Baptist Association;
- Global efforts including Peru, Kenya and the Global Mission Leadership at Baylor;
- Collegiate mission efforts at ETBU, LETU, Kilgore College & across Texas;
- East Texas Disaster Relief Team & Texas Baptist Men;
- Local needs such as Buckner International, House of Disciples, Hiway 80 Rescue Mission, Heartisans, and Longview Community Ministries to name a few.
