Our Mission

 

WE EXIST TO GLORIFY GOD BY BEING DISCIPLES WHO MAKE DISCIPLES

 

TO GLORIFY GOD…

In 1 Corinthians 10:31 Paul writes, “…whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”  Here at First Baptist we desire to glorify God in all we seek to accomplish.  We do not seek our own personal fame and recognition.  Rather, by God’s grace, we want to see Christ loved and worshipped both in Muscatine and around the world.     

 

…BY BEING DISCIPLES…

We believe living for Christ begins with a healthy understanding of our identity in Him.  As disciples of Christ we are sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father, we are new creations in regard to our former selves, we are members of both a local church and the global Church, and we are foreigners awaiting our eternal home with our Savior. 

 

 …WHO MAKE DISCIPLES…

By God’s grace, we want God to use our church tomake disciples for His glory.  First we want to share Christ with others so they know God fully, trusting in Him alone for their salvation.  Secondly, we want to equip believers to grow as His followers, deepening their love for the Lord and developing their spiritual gifts.  Finally, we want to send disciples out to go and make more disciples, using their gifts to reach others for Christ.
