The Mission of the First Baptist Church of Long Prairie is to INFLUENCE our church and our community to LOVE GOD and LOVE PEOPLE!
Our hope and desire is that everything we do will be connected to this mission. We believe that God has called us to be influencers and that this statement fully captures the mission that Jesus gave us in Mark 12 and Matthew 28.
Mark 12 is where Jesus sums up the greatest commandment with that simple statement: "Love the Lord your God with all of your heart and with all of your soul and with all of you mind and with all of your streangth."
Matthew 28 contains the great commission. Here we are told to make disciples of all people, teaching and helping people to know, follow and honor Jesus with their lives.
