Missions

Check below for current mission opportunities locally here in Martin, across our state, in our nation, and around the world.  Here at FBC Martin, we believe it is our purpose and mission to live the Great Commandment and fulfill the Great Commission.

  • Local Missions (Martin)

    First Loves Martin is an opportunity for our church members to serve the citizens of the city of Martin by completing various service projects in the area. We have a Saturday set aside in the spring and the fall to perform these service projects. The projects vary, and the time of each one is based on the current needs of individuals and the community. We invite you to join us in serving our great community.

  • Regional MIssions (Tennessee)

    We have several opportunities to serve across our great state of Tennessee through partnerships with the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board, the Tennessee Baptist Children's Homes, and Catalyst Missions in Memphis.
