The mission of God throughout all of history and throughout the entire world is to make His name known through the gospel of Jesus Christ. The call to be a disciple of Jesus Christ is a call to join in this mission. The first thing Jesus said to his disciples was the command, “Follow me and I will make you become fishers of men.” Part of faithfully following Jesus is making Him known to others. Not only is this the mission of individual Christians, but it is also the mission of the Church as a whole. Right before He ascended to heaven, Jesus charged his disciples, “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” We move forward in obedience to this command with confidence that the mission will succeed because the gospel will save. This is what it looks like to grow in our relationships with the world around us.
Our aim is to equip the people of LaGrange Baptist and engage them in the mission of God in this world. This takes place on two levels: local and global. Locally we seek to serve our community through individual/family counseling, work projects, backyard Bible clubs, and other opportunities throughout the year. Globally we seek to take the gospel to the nations through international mission trips, prayer, and supporting missionaries and church plants. See the links below to learn more about these opportunities.
