Missions at First Baptist Church

How does God want to use you?

First Baptist Church Rutherfordton offers many opportunities for service as you put your interests and gifts to work. We also partner with mission organizations around the world, to come alongside and support them in their good work. And we are perhaps most known for the Women Roofers ministry!

Our church uses ministry teams as a way to connect people who are enthusiastic about a ministry opportunity. If there isn't a ministry team doing work you feel called to do, have a conversation with our deacons about starting one! We want all who call First Baptist Church their home to be engaged in ministry and missions. Together, we are making God’s Kingdom tangible “on earth as it is in heaven.” Click here to learn more about our ministry team opportunities.


The women's roofers grew out of a Sunday school class here at First Baptist Church and became so successful that it caught the attention of Mike Rowe, and other national media organizations! Read more about it here.


The work of sharing the love of God, and caring for our neighbors (both near and away!) is best done in partnership with others. We partner with many organizations doing good work locally and around the globe. Check out just some of those partners here.
