Acts 1:8 Mission Statement
"Sharing Jesus intentionally and strategically in our community, our region, America, and the world - as we pray, equip, challenge, and send."
Pray: We recognize that His work is only accomplished through the Spirit's leading and empowerment.
Equip: It is through personal and corporate worship, discipleship, education, and training that we become like Christ and understand His purpose in each of our lives, and the life of our church.
Challenge: Avenues will be provided to encourage each member to sacrificially give of themselves and their resources in order to reach out in their circles of influence and around the world.
Send: It is our desire that God calls people out of FBC Greenwood to serve Him around the world.

As Southern Baptist Churches, we join together with our prayers, efforts, and money through the CP. FBC Greenwood has made the prayerful decision to give 5% of our budget income to the CP. This money is sent to the Arkansas Baptist State Convention. They then disperse these gifts for missions, ministries, education, and church planting throughout Arkansas, and through the North American Mission Board and the International Mission Board. So, as you give, know that every dollar has a global, ACTS 1:8, impact!!!
