Missions & Outreach
Our vision at Fresno First Baptist is to make a positive impact for Jesus Christ in our neighborhood, city and world. With this as our vision statement, global and local mission work is the core of who we are as a church. We want to share the love and gospel of Jesus Christ with all people in every nation!
This means inviting people to meet Jesus as we meet practical needs here in Fresno; it means building a medical clinic and sending teams to Nigeria; it means supporting missionaries who work with women who are trafficked or trapped in prostitution…and much more!
Local Opportunities and Partnerships
We exist in the heart of Fresno and are committed to making an impact for the sake of God’s kingdom. We want to see lives transformed through Jesus Christ one by one, and we want to see families and communities make a positive impact in our city. We are fully convinced that churches, schools, organizations, and leaders must work together for the sake of God’s kingdom work, so we have many partnerships with others. We also have several on-going opportunities on our own campus.
We are also proud to be the financial umbrella for the Central Valley Justice Coalition. CVJC’s mission is the empower the church and community to bring holistic and lasting change to those impacted by human trafficking. We do this through partnerships, mobilization, prevention and holistic care.
Jesus said to go into the world and make disciples of ALL nations. As followers of Christ, we are simply called to obey! Fresno First supports missionaries and organizations all over the world in order to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to those who desperately need him.
