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. Matthew 28:19
We are involved with the Southern Baptist Convention which includes many partnerships. Southern Baptists are the most racially and culturally diverse group of believers in the United States. We are the 3rd largest disaster relief provider in the United States with 83,000+ trained workers. Southern Baptists support approximately 5,000 North American missionaries and more than 5,000 International missionaries in 153 nations of the world.
Through the Cooperative Program, Southern Baptists underwrite world-wide hunger relief, hospitals, children's homes, colleges, universities, seminaries, campus ministries and much more.
We, here at FCB Bloomfield, believe that Christ saves us to put us ON MISSION. There is nothing that we can do to earn His Grace. This isn’t about doing good for goodness sake. This is about loving God, loving others & making disciples.
Local Mission Opportunities
Beclabito Baptist Church
Beclabito is a Navajo church that meets on Sundays in the Beclabito community on the Navajo Reservation. The first Sunday of every month FBC Bloomfield sends a team out to preach and teach and minister to those on the reservation who desire to know more about Jesus. Contact the church office to get involved in this ministry.
Four Corners Home for Children and Navajo Nation Outreach

They seek to provide a safe, loving home for children from abusive or neglectful backgrounds through our Extended Care Homes and our House of Hope program. They also work to provide spiritual and emotional encouragement for Native Americans.

Phoenix - In the spring of 2017 FBC Bloomfield had the opportunity to send a mission team to work with Mercy Hill Church. Mercy Hill is located in the downtown Phoenix in an area that is experiencing revitalization. We were able to help improve the facilities as well as reach out to the community.
Indianapolis - We have partnered for the past two years and sent mission teams to work with Living Faith Church in Indianapolis. Living Faith describes itself as a place where one will find truth and a sense of belonging. Their desire is to introduce people to Christ who is the author of the new beginning. We will be sending another team to Indianapolis in the summer of 2018. More information will be shared in the near future.
Salt Lake City - FBC Bloomfield is entering into partnerships with churches in the Salt Lake City Utah area. A partnership means that we will come alongside churches to help them fulfill their God-given purpose. Salt Lake City is 98% unchurched. It is a city that is home to an unreached people group. We are partnering with church planters and other churches in North America to bring a vibrant gospel presence to the nearly 2.4 million people living in the metro area. We will be sending 2 teams in 2018
International Mission Opportunities
Kenya - A team from First Baptist Bloomfield will be traveling to Kenya on December 26, 2017 to work and minister in the areas of Nairobi and Busia. We will conduct health clinics (eye and medical) in both areas. We will also have the opportuity to help with a church building project and provide assistance with home construction.
London - A mission team(s) will be traveling to London in 2018. Population estimates for the greater metro region range as high as 14 million. The vast majority of people don't have a relationship with Jesus and more than likely have never met a true follower of Jesus. It is also estimated than more than 300 languages are spoken in London, and the city has at least fifty non-indigenous communities with populations of ten thousand or more. There will be numerous opportunities for ministry among various groups. Please call the churh office for more details.
