Global Missions

"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit."

Matthew 28:19

Our God is a missionary God. He sent His Son into the world as the first missionary and commanded His disciples to go into all the world (Matt 28:18-20; John 3:16; Acts 1:8). First Baptist Church of Auburn is committed to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with a lost and dying world. We partner with missionaries in Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, South Africa, India, Israel, and North America because we believe it is critical for them to hear about the life-giving message of salvation (Rom 10:14).  We engage in short-term missions trips to help support and encourage our missionaries all over the world and to help facilitate the spread of God's Word.
