Missions · Reaching the World for Christ
First Baptist Church of Byram is fully committed to seeing the Gospel spread throughout the world. We accomplish this by seeking to get the Gospel into our local community and far beyond. These are a few of the missions efforts we support:
- ICU Missions - Our student ministry seeks to take the gospel to hurting people in our local hospital ICU's by visiting waiting rooms, praying with people, and offering them a care package.
- Sponsoring Missionaries - We currently support Charlie Harris, his wife Lesley, and their three children as they plant a church in Hamilton Ontario near Toronto, Canada.
- North American Missions - A portion of our weekly tithes and offerings go directly to the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention through what's known as the Cooperative Program to support sending missionaries throughout the United States and Canada. We also collect an annual offering around Easter, known as the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering, to support North American missions.
- International Missions - A portion of our weekly tithes and offerings go directly to the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention through what's known as the Cooperative Program to support sending missionaries all around the world. We also collect an annual offering around Christmas, known as the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, to support International missions.
