Giving Our Lives

Give to a specific mission trip or an individual going on a trip

Our church strategy is built around three objectives. Gathering our hearts (worship); Growing our souls (growth); and Giving our lives (service). Giving our lives is the missional dimension of our church which includes prayer, volunteering, giving, service, and missions.

We desire to see the gospel advanced throughout the city, our nation and the world.

We are committed to doing three things through our mission endeavors:

  • First, making disciples by planting churches in global cities.
  • Second, carrying the name of Jesus to nearly 3 billion unreached people.
  • Third, doing justice in dark places.

Houston 1:8

Each year, for a few evenings in July, the Houston's First family focuses their hearts and efforts on sharing the love and truth of Jesus with people at locations throughout the greater Houston area. We call it Houston 1:8 and each of our campuses reaches out in different ways.

The Houston’s First Baptist Church Missions Team desires for believers to understand, own and execute the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20). Each component requires training, exposure to ministry, mentorship, and intentional prayer. Our Team is committed to working together to train believers in carrying out the Great Commission through the love of Christ.

Modern Day Slavery: Fighting Human Trafficking in Our Backyard

There are at least 40 million slaves in the world today—more than at any other time in human history. Because the church has always been God’s Plan-A for redemption, it is crucial that we engage in the battle to eradicate slavery. Many individuals are passionate about joining this movement, but it is easy to get overwhelmed with where to start. Join us as we come together to learn, pray and take the next step forward. …

Loving Muslims

Over these six weeks, we will look at culture and worldview and how the Gospel rightly fits in this context. We will go over how to communicate the truth of Scripture and “best practices.” We will lean into partnering with the Holy Spirit in this endeavor, and share many stories of how each of these things have played out in our own lives. We will conclude by sharing established and organized opportunities to get involved with partners who are already working in this community. …
