Serving in missions provides opportunities for us to share the gospel and to experience personal spiritual growth. Due to our busy lifestyles and other various factors, it stands to reason that local missions are where many of us will spend most of our time serving. It’s important we not only share the gospel, but we also serve with Christians of similar beliefs from diverse backgrounds. Such service opportunities allow us to develop a broader understanding of how we can meet the various needs of others in our neighboring communities and to gain the experience of serving with Christians from different backgrounds.
To help us accomplish these goals, Mountain Brook Baptist Church has developed a partnership with Faith Church.
Faith Church is a multi-cultural community of believers whose church is located in Midfield, Alabama. The needs in the Midfield community differ substantially from Mountain Brook, although the need to share the love of Jesus Christ is the same. Through serving alongside the congregation of Faith Church we will create new Christian relationships, gain knowledge about the needs in our neighboring communities so we can enhance our influence for Christ, and grow socially, culturally, and spiritually.
