COMMUNITY MISSIONS
Every Person   Every Family   Every Group

The FBCSA family mobilized to live out the Gospel in this city through rhythms of everyday life, bringing healing and hope through the power of the Gospel in tangible ways.

“You are the LIGHT of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Let your light SHINE before others, so that they may see your good works and give GLORY to your Father who is in heaven.” - MATTHEW 5:14-16

Jesus said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. GO 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.” - MATTHEW 29:18-20
 


Projects and programs are not the mission; making disciples of a PEOPLE who live in a particular PLACE is the mission.

IT IS INTENTIONAL. IT IS LONG TERM. IT IS INVESTED.


REGULAR PEOPLE LIVING ORDINARY LIVES WITH GREAT GOSPEL INTENTIONALITY.
