Community Missions of First Baptist Church operates on the fundamental principal that God created all people in his image as total persons and that he plans for every person to live a full and meaningful life, physically and materially, mentally and emotionally, socially and relationally, and spiritually. To live the life God intends, an individual engages in a life-long need meeting process. At times, every person has an additional need for help to meet those needs.
Community Missions exsists to help people help themselves in meeting their needs – giving the gospel a human face and touch, sharing God’s love through meeting needs.
Choices: a Way Out - A New Community Ministry Paradigm
First Baptist Church is currently in process of implementing Choices: a Way Out a program designed to enable struggling individuals and families live the best possible life as whole persons in a social environment in which they find themselves at its lowest socio-economic level. “The best possible life” results from one optimally meeting his or her physical, mental, and spiritual needs in his or her present situation with the expectation of improving that situation. Successful participants will change their poverty status to become self-sufficient individuals and families and become contributing members of society.
Mentors will provide general oversight of the participants’ involvement in the program and guide them in their progress toward achieving their goals. (A one year commitment to an individual or family)
Coaches will provide specific tutoring in areas of education, employment, homemaking, budgeting, parenting, etc. (Commitments will vary as per need)
Training Training for coaches and mentors will begin September 2015.
