Day 1: (strength·en) Churches
Churches are our Priority
All local churches in Georgia are on the cutting edge of ministry in their communities, around our state, and across the world. Georgia Baptists are comprised of over one million believers who have the incredible privilege and spiritual role for impacting Georgia for Christ. The Georgia Baptist Mission Board is the primary entity with shared responsibility to encourage, equip, train, and partner with nearly 3,600 churches and missions statewide to help transform lives for Christ.
Every church family desires to be more efficient and effective for our Lord. Your mission board shares your burden for the spiritually lost and ill-equipped believers who are desperate for a deepened walk with God. The Georgia Baptist Mission Board is committed to strengthening the vital ministry of every local church and its congregation for the glory of God.
Our mission in Georgia has been hampered through the lower trending of baptisms, worship attendance, and commitment to Bible study. Fewer disciples for Christ are being trained than in previous years, while a hunger for authentic worship is increasing. We are ready and poised for change that will result in refreshed spiritual impact.
Your prayers and response to this year’s Mission Georgia Offering will make a dynamic and divine impact. Every dollar feeds the multiple ministries of your mission board to enable state missionaries in their renewed commitment to strengthen your church, while fueling new opportunities to reach out and focus on you- the church as a body of believers.
The redesign of our Georgia Baptist Mission Board into six distinct regions across our state, along with six refined ministry emphases, will be our new approach to benefit and engage as many churches as possible. State missionaries will be moving to your region in order to be available, relate to your needs, and come alongside your church as a partner in the Gospel. Our goal is simple: fulfill the Great Commission by working together with the local church and association in reaching and discipling as many people as possible.
Will you join us in this new journey? We invite you and implore you to do so!
Pray For the Strengthening Of Georgia Baptist Churches By:
- Asking God to place the right missionaries in the right areas for the right purpose.
- Pleading with our Heavenly Father for there to be a Spirit-led cooperation between churches, associations, and the mission board.
- Thanking Jesus for souls to be saved and believers to be led to a deeper commitment to Christ.
