Where Can I Serve?
Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of this church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Church members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as washing the church vehicles to preparing the church bulletins to leading recovery groups for our community. We are always looking for where God is at work so we can join Him as he does a great work in Anchorage, Alaska!.
First Baptist Church of Anchorage is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom in Alaska and around the world. The church sponsors Nome Baptist Church in Nome, Alaska in addition to various other ministries throughout the state and world with our money and with our prayers. Reaching our world is a key tenet about who we are, and we strive to be an active ministry in our community and world..
Creating an opportunity for our congregation to worship the Almighty God is the focus of our weekly services. Church members get involved in our music by playing instruments and by joining the praise team as vocalists. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of our church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God!
Media & Technology
Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of this church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website in video and audio formats. We also maintain an active Facebook for additional church communication. Feel free to share sermons from our site to those who need to hear the gospel truth!
Marriages can be difficult to maintain. Misunderstanding, confusion, resentment, and anger can flare up in any marriage. Several couples at our church serve other families as marriage counselors. Their role in listening, understanding, helping, and encouraging struggling couples has, by God’s grace, saved marriages, and repaired relationships. Couples have found fresh hope and new joy in a warm and fulfilling relationship with their spouse.
Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. Our Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday, during the morning service, a team of volunteers is praying for the ministry of the Word. Throughout the week, volunteers from our Prayer Warriors team pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs.
