Missions and Evangelism

Our church supports worldwide missions through our giving to the Southern Baptist Convention's North American Mission Board and International Mission Board. The faithfulness of our members at the local level makes an eternal impact on the souls of people throughout the world!
We also have an "On Mission Team" that teaches our members about missions according to Acts 1:8 and promotes missions consistently for better awareness and member involvement. This team aims to meet the needs of the lonely, hungry and estranged from Christ.
The On Mission Team is divided into four smaller teams, representing Community Missions, State Missions, North American Missions and International Missions.

Another important part of being an "on-mission" follower of Christ is simply knowing how to share your faith with others. We offer tools and training to anyone interesting in learning how to talk to others about the Gospel.

Note from the Pastor - January 2014

Just a little over a year ago I had the privilege of becoming the next Senior Pastor of First Southern Baptist Church in Topeka. Little did we know what the year would look like. It has been a year full of getting to know a very wonderful, devoted and talented group of people who are passionate about being On Mission. A lot has happened this year. We have seen a significant amount of change in many things. I do not believe I have ever heard anyone say, “We have never done it that way before.” I asked you to commit to not saying that in my very first sermon at the church and you did a great job in your commitment to not saying, “we have never done it that way before.” Well, this is a new year with great opportunities ahead of us.

One thing I can guarantee you is that change will occur again.

Why do I know that?

If one does not change, one dies. In the book, Adapt or Die by retired LT General Rick Lynch, he communicates this very clearly. Do we change for the sake of change? No. We change, we adapt, so we may become all that the Lord has in store for us. May we join the Father in His work this year and may we change in whatever way He may choose and desire.
