Missions At the intersection of our culture and the kingdom of God, the First Baptist Church of Asheville is a community of faith centered on Jesus Christ and committed to his purpose in the world. We are experiencing transformation into his image, engaging our culture with his will and way, and embracing wholeness in the life he offers. The goal of First Baptist Church Missions Committee is to develop interactive projects which integrate growth in Christ with assisting the needs of others. In keeping with our church's mission statement of being a presence "at the intersection of the culture and the Kingdom of God," these ministries currently focus on urban outreach projects. Care Groups are a way for First Baptist Church members to interact in a caring and Christian loving manner with other members of First Baptist Church who have specific needs. There is a place and need for anyone who is interested in being a part of this intercongregational group. For more information on these Care Groups please contact Roy & Mary Feringa (645-7016). Disaster Relief Ministry was created in response to the overwhelming needs in the wake of our recent devastating hurricane seasons. A rapid-response team is being developed to entitled local and non-local disaster relief. The Disaster Relief Group is a multi-functional group that works in partnership with other groups or independently depending on the needs of the area and the skill level of the volunteer. There are training sessions formed for people interested in indepth ministry, and other disaster relief trips in the planning stages.
