First Baptist on Mission

Local. National. Global.

We are committed to sharing the love of Christ through missional action. We believe that by supporting our communities; local, national, and global, we are reflecting the light of Christ.

 

Let us help you find the perfect ministry for your talents! Contact Rev. Gavin Spell to learn more.

Current Mission Emphasis:

FEATURED PARTNER

Rise Against Hunger

Rise Against Hunger targets remote, last-mile communities within hunger pockets designated “serious” or higher on the Global Hunger Index. These are the hardest places to reach and are often difficult to access, lack communication, and have poor infrastructure. With the support of global impact partners, RAH practices locally-led development by providing expertise vital to empower local communities and providing meals through local schools to incentive attendance and enable kids to obtain an education.

 

On April 20th we are hosting a Rise Against Hunger Meal Packing event in the Gym of the Activity Center. This year we’re packing 30,000 meals, and we need your help! This event is for all ages, young and old, and will be starting at 9:00AM.

PLEASE NOTE: All who plan to attend must sign the RAH waiver. All volunteers who register online also receive an email when the meals they packaged are shipped with details about who they will feed.

FEATURED PARTNER

Living Hope

In 2023, we partnered with Living Hope to convert our underutilized basement space into a day shelter. The shelter is open on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9AM to 1PM and provides help to our unhoused neighbors. The volunteers provide a comfortable place to rest, breakfast, coffee, and help connecting those in need with nearby non-profits.

Tuesday Night
Ministries

Every Tuesday Night, we serve a community meal to our neighbors. This ministry has expanded to include a shower trailer and clothing closet!

There are multiple ways to get involved with our Tuesday Night Ministry. We need volunteers to help with the cooking, serving, clothing closet, shower trailer, and more.

CBF Partners

We have partnered with Missionaries around the country through our connection with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship (CBF). In 2022 our students traveled to Corbin, Kentucky and worked at the Baptist Housing facility, a 64 unit living facility for elderly and mobility-impaired adults.

In 2023, we partnered with Forest Hills Baptist Church and CBF’s very own Welcome House ministry to do what we called a “Tour de Welcome House.” Our teams got to hear from local Raleigh churches about what goes into creating a ‘Welcome House’ and the process that refugee families go through while adjusting to life in the States.

Guatemala &
South Africa

We partner with GRACE Ministries in Chimaltenango, Guatemala to support their work through monetary donations and mission work. We typically travel to Guatemala twice per year to help build housing and other important infrastructure.

FBC is a part of the South Africa Network. We have made a commitment to several ministry partners in South Africa – to support the work they are doing, to provide resources as we can, and to go to South Africa and encourage them with whatever labor and words of affirmation are needed.

    Washington, D.C., Washington, DC, USA
    While many of the people living in the Metro area live in comfort, too much of the city’s population lives with the hardship of poverty and hunger. We’ll be living in the city for a week, serving alongside local organizations spreading love and light throughout our nation’s capital.
