Our Mission & Vision

The Mission for FBC Baton Rouge:

FBCBR is here to make disciples in the name of Jesus Christ, for the glory and honor of God.

Our mission is what Jesus Christ or Lord has commanded us to be about each and every day. It is for this reason that Jesus speaks so clearly to us in Matthew 28:18-20 - And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore 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. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."

The Vision for FBC Baton Rouge:

We are called together as one body by Almighty God to be a Christ-centered, gospel proclaiming, multigenerational church for the sake of God’s glory in downtown Baton Rouge.

The vision for First Baptist Church of Baton Rouge is the “picture” of how we desire to see the mission of our church take shape. The great news is that the God of the universe who spoke all things into creation and holds all things together by the power of his will (Colossians 1:15-20) will be working in us and through us to see His Vision for his church become a reality.

For the Nations:
We see FBC BR deeply invested on every continent on earth through church planting, gospel proclamation among unreached people groups, bible translation projects, and mercy ministries to the world’s most desperate people.
