First Baptist has long participated in putting action behind our words on an international level. Not only are we continuing to build partnerships abroad, but we have several international ministries right here in Augusta.
We recognize that Jesus commanded us to go the “ends of the earth.” We also recognize that those from “the ends of the earth” are coming here to Augusta. We strive to be the hands and feet of Christ by offering to all the same love that we have received.
We are the home of the First Vietnamese Baptist Church whose congregation meets on our campus throughout the week. We also have a long-standing Chinese Sunday School department that meets on campus on Sunday afternoons. We have a Korean Bible study that meets two Fridays a month off campus as well.
We commissioned Ernie and Allison Sizemore to the mission field in Santa Elena, Honduras. We sending multiple teams throughout the year with varying focus.
We continue to join the world in prayer for Liberia and other West African countries in light of the Ebola outbreak. Specifically, we pray for the ministry of Jessy Togba-Doya in Balama.
