Missions is the heart of everything we do here at FBC 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 throughout the church calendar in which mission projects are scheduled throughout the year.
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 the Global Mission Leadership at Baylor and Bantu, Ethiopia;
- Collegiate mission efforts at ETBU, LETU, Kilgore College & across Texas;
- East Texas Disaster Relief Team & TX Baptist Men
- Local needs such as Longview Community Ministries, Hiway 80 Rescue Mission, House of Disciples & Buckner;
- World and local hunger.
