Acts 1:8 (NASB)

"but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth."


Our goal is to have every member of First Baptist Matthews participate in missions. We exist to Reach OUT to the world in the name of Jesus Christ.
