At First Baptist Belton, one of our core aims is to share Jesus globally. We do this through local mission projects, international mission trips, and by living an intentionally evangelical lifestyle in the environment where we have been placed. Missionary work, however, is not an end in and of itself. Worship is. When this world comes to an end and our work ceases, it is the praise of our great God that alone will endure for all of eternity. Missions will be no more, but the worship of our great God will be eternal.
So we extend an invitation for you to partner with us in worshiping God with our lives and our resources as we spread the hope of the gospel. You will find various ways to connect below. If you have any questions that are not answered here, contact Mark Cox, Minister of Missions at email@example.com.

In Our Community:
Our annual church budget supports the following organizations on a monthly basis. We know these groups and believe that the work they do is God-honoring. If one or more of these tugs at your heart, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to fin specific ways to get involved in sharing Jesus right here in Bell County.
As an extension of our goal to share Jesus globally, we also support two great churches who are sharing Jesus locally. We hope you will take some time to get to know our brothers and sister and their work in Bell County.

Chinese Mission Church
Under the leadership of Paul Trinh, this church is flourishing as it works to evangelize and disciple the Chinese living in Central Texas.

Unreached, Unengaged People Group
As our response to the great commission, we truly want to be a part of spreading the Gospel to those who haven’t heard it.

Pray with us as we begin the process of knowing, serving, and sharing Jesus with these amazing people.
