Our church is grateful for the opportunity to work together with many other agencies and institutions as we seek to fulfill our Christ-given commission to share the gospel message and the love of Jesus Christ in our own neighborhood and around the world.
Here are some of our ministry partners. (If you desire further information about any of these organizations, you can click on the title to be taken to their website. All links will open in new browser tabs.)
From the beginning, the SBTC made missions and evangelism the priority in every aspect of our work. Churches in the SBTC have started hundreds of congregations since the convention began. Of those, over 300 were funded with SBTC missions money. Together we can do what no church can do alone.
Ministries supported by over 40,000 Southern Baptist churches across the U.S. are also SBTC ministry partners. Together we support over 13,000 men and women in seminary training. Our mission boards support more than 10,000 missionaries across the globe. Our partnership with the Southern Baptist Convention allows us to share in a ministry that touches the world.
In our partnership with the ACBA we help support missions and ministry projects in the Abilene area. That partnership enables our church to be a part of ministries such as Abilene Baptist Association Social Ministries, the Christian Women's Job Corps, and the Eunice Chambless Hospitality House (a weekend housing ministry to the families of inmates of the two local prisons).
Abilene Calahan Baptist Association Social Ministries is here to serve residents of Abilene and Taylor County who are in need. Aid is coordinated with other agencies serving the Abilene area through the "211" computer network. Services provided include food, children’s clothing, personal care items, household goods, financial assistance with utilities and medication. Clients receive assistance with food and clothing every 60 days and financial aid bi-annually. While meeting physical needs is important, our clients' spiritual needs are also considered. Special care is taken to counsel with each person to see that needs are being met and to ensure each one has the opportunity to know Jesus Christ personally.
