Global Focus Mission Work
Global Focus Mission
Global Focus Mission Statement: The purpose of the First Protestant Global Focus Missions Teams is to enable the spread of the gospel and to minister to others locally, nationally, and globally in the name of Jesus Christ and to encourage the growth of FPC as a global missions-minded (Acts 1:8) church.
Nearly 170 years ago, First Protestant Church began as a mission outpost for early German immigrants in what was then the barren wilderness of South Central Texas. Today – as we carry out the Great Commission of our Lord in the 21st century – we go into all the world and make disciples (Matthew 28:19-20), we also live out the challenge that each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others (1 Peter 4:10). At First Protestant Church, we empower our people to serve others in various local, national, and international mission venues. We believe that we were created by God for this purpose in Jesus Christ and that God prepared in advance for us to do his work (Ephesians 2:10).
