"With everything going on in the world today, our worshiping together and gathering as a church body has been impacted more than we ever could have imagined. But, with every roadblock we encounter, comes opportunities to serve Jesus and to impact the world for the gospel.
We at First Baptist Church - Slidell, see the shutdowns and social distancing as an unforeseen opportunity to reach the world. The world moves in new ways and communicates in ways that we have not addressed as a church before. The days of reaching the world from a place, a building where we gather, has changed. With the internet and social media, we can reach the entire world from the place that we could have only reached those close to us. Now is the time for First Baptist Church – Slidell to reach around the globe with the gospel of Jesus Christ and the message of GOD’s love for the world.
We would like to invite all of you along on this journey. We need your prayers, and we need your help in making this mission a success.
There will be costs for lighting, video, and sound upgrades to the building; new hardware, software, and a dedicated computer set up will help us make the best leap from our sanctuary to the internet. We will also use it for training staff and volunteers to utilize this new equipment to its best potential to stream worldwide in high quality video and sound.
Jesus told his followers this in Matthew 28 - 18 “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…” We at FBC Slidell will follow his words. Our Mission is Compelling our neighbors to enjoy Jesus forever and our Vision is Making it easy to see Jesus.
Please take a few minutes to pray, reach into your Christlike heart, and invest into to this mission of FBC – Slidell to help reach the world which desperately needs the message of the Gospel. Your help will make all the difference!"
