Find Your Spot
Dear Church Family Member:
Are you looking for a place to serve? Find Your Spot!
This form is a valuable source of information, used by our Committee on Committees, as we seek God’s will in who will serve in the various groups that provide leadership in our Church. You will communicate to our team how God is leading you and how He has gifted you in knowledge and experience. Your prompt and prayerful attention is critical for the staffing of all of our committees and teams. Thanks for your help.
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.

COMMUNITY MISSION OPPORTUNITIES
ASK ME Ministry
The Ask Me Ministry exists to help visitors to the FBCSA campus find their most direct path to experiencing Christ through this church.
We will fulfill this purpose by covering our campus during Sunday morning activities with team members who are Available, Sociable, and Knowledgable, in order to simplify and facilitate the Sunday morning experience. We will find and provide visitors with whatever information they need, we will anticipate and answer their questions, and we will escort them to their desired programs or services as needed.
ASK ME members will work ONE SUNDAY A MONTH. They will be out in designated areas 15 minutes before and after Bible Study and Worship times, and will therefore be able to attend their own classes and services.
Will you get involved? Contact Kappie Coffee at 210.226.0363 or email her at email@example.com.
As a group of servant-leaders, the FBCSA deacon body exists to lead, assist and support FBCSA in making disciples for the Lord Jesus Christ.
The heritage of deacon service goes back to New Testament times. The deacons serve the Lord by serving the congregation of First Baptist Church San Antonio. The office of deacon is not one of authority. It is a commitment of service.

Acts 1:8 says, “but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses, both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”
First Baptist’s Missions ministry involves mission education, short term national trips, short term international trips, and in some cases long term mission involvement. Our Mission Statement is : "Our purpose is to sponsor, support, and develop mission opportunities for our church to share Jesus with the world resulting in changed hearts, renewed compassion and new callings to His service. "
Each mission trip is weighed against this statement in order to maintain our focus. The mission ministry at First Baptist is involved in praying for and participation in sharing the gospel around the world. Our desire is to create a mindset for missions involvement in every believer's heart.
