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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
International Missionaries serve on the front lines of the lost world as they minister compassionately, make disciples, and plant churches among the least reached peoples of the world. At First Baptist Belton we seek to provide a place to call home for the time that IMB missionaries come from the field for their stateside assignment. We also learn tremendously from the missionary families as they share about their overseas mission work with our church family for the brief time they are here.

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 email@example.com to find 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.
Dúnamis Hispanic Mission
This fellowship, led by Pat Munoz, is working to reach the Spanish-speaking community with the gospel from their church home in South Belton. If you have an interest in reaching this group of Central Texans, please contact Pat. To visit the web site for Dúnamis, click here.
Chinese Mission Church
This church is flourishing as it works to evangelize and disciple the Chinese living in Central Texas. Through Sunday Services in the small sanctuary and a powerful outreach to local restaurant workers during the week, they are truly being salt and light to their community. Contact Mark to find out how you can join them. To visit their web site, click here.
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. We recently adopted a South Asian culture as the unreached people group that we will be involved with. Pray with us as we begin the process of knowing, serving, and sharing Jesus with these amazing people.
