First Baptist Church has always been a mission-minded church. This has been demonstrated through it's involvement in starting ten churches in Macon County and one in Georgia.
Through mission education as well as missions involvement, we have continued to obey Jesus' Great Commission, "Go Ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you.
Members at First Baptist Church are involved in community, state, national, and international missions activities. The Woman's Missionary Union and the Baptist Men (a.k.a The Brotherhood) offer opportunities for involvement for all age groups.
Helping Hands is a Baptist Men's organization who help with disaster relief ,construction, and repairs needed for our church members who need special routine 'handyman' type repairs. Call the church office to request assistance.
