Missions

"Go into all the world
and preach the gospel" - Mark 16:15

Follow Me and I will
make you fishers of Men

Matthew 4:19

We believe that serving leads to life change. Everyone at FBCATV who is following Jesus should be living a “missional” life. We want you “on mission” in your community, state, nation and the world, and we offer opportunities for people to serve together in a variety of experiences. Whether through meeting tangible needs in the surrounding community, engaging individuals through educational avenues, or helping to provide food for those facing financial insecurities, all of FBCATV’s efforts are built around partnerships that aim to foster opportunities to meet Christ and develop as His disciples.

Annually, empty shoeboxes are distributed to the local church family to be filled with gifts and are then collected and delivered to the local collection site for distribution by Samaritan’s Purse.
