Serving the World
First Baptist Lawrence is a church that serves locally, nationally, and internationally.
When Jesus was asked what is the greatest commandment, he said that it was to love God and to love others as we love ourselves. Out of our love for God, we have become aware of the need to love our neighbors in a holistic manner not only here in Lawrence but throughout our nation and world.
We are committed to meeting the needs in our local community here in Lawrence. We participate in Family Promise, LINK, and run our own food pantry. Also, we partner with local organizations through cash donations, food drives, blood drives, and clothing drives. Check out our Serving Lawrence page for more information on our current efforts to serve our community.
Regionally and Nationally
We believe that we must reach beyond our boundaries of Lawrence into the rest of our country. Through short term mission trips across the country, donations to various organizations, and partnerships with regional organizations, we seek to serve the wider American community. For more information check out the Serving Regionally and Nationally page.
The Christian faith is one that has no national borders. We recognize the need to support our brothers and sisters throughout the world. The American Baptist International Ministries is our primary method of supporting missionaries and serving around the world. To learn more visit the Serving Internationally page.
