Faith Baptist Missions
In 1838 James and Mary Calvert sailed from England to serve as Wesleyan missionaries in the Fijian Islands. On the trip over, the ship’s captain tried to get them to turn back saying, “You’ll lose your life and the lives of those with you if you go among such savages.” Mr. Calvert’s reply summed up the missionary spirit when he said, “We died before we came here.”
Our desire at Faith Baptist Church is to mirror that same missionary spirit with our funds. Giving which enables others to fulfill our Lord Jesus Christ’s command in Acts 1:7-8. This same vision stirred the local church in Antioch to send Paul and his company to the regions beyond in Acts 13:1-13. Among the various missionaries we support around the globe the following three families are members here at Faith Baptist. As a result, we thought you would enjoy learning more about the Hirtzel, Tsirozidis, and Russell families by following their ministries via our website.
