Perdido Bay Baptist Church values spreading the gospel through mission work throughout our community and the world. We are small church, but we value partnering with others for big results. We love participating in reaching out with the love of Christ, and our participation includes praying, giving, and going to fulfill our calling to be a missional church.
SBC Cooperative Program
As a cooperating church in the SBC, we partner with over 50,000 other churches to support hundreds of missionaries commissioned in North America and internationally. We support the North American Mission Board and the International Mission Board financially through the Florida Baptist Convention and at special times of the year through the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering and the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering.
Pensacola Bay Baptist Association
We cooperate with dozens of local Baptist churches for mission work throughout Northwest Florida through the Pensacola Bay Baptist Association. Our association works to serve our communities and to spread the Gospel through the following ways:
1. Faith and Hope Counseling Center,
2. Health and Hope Clinic,
3. Disaster Relief Efforts,
4. Encouragement to Pensacola Bay Area Baptist churches,
5. and countless other ways which influence and transform our communities by the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Locally, Perdido Bay is committed to serving those in our community through our weekly Food Bank. We offer services to over a hundred families each month. Additionally, we partner with Pleasant Grove Baptist, Point Baptist, and Perdido Bay Methodist to provide food once a month through the Bay Area Food Bank.
Further, Perdido Bay Baptist partners with a Hispanic congregation. This church serves the Hispanic culture in our community with services in Spanish on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings.
Church Partnership in Quebec
Perdido Bay Baptist is a part of a multi-church partnership led by Olive Baptist Church to support church planting in Quebec, Canada. We sent a mission team to Quebec in June 2014, to help begin church planting and outreach efforts in this area.
Sunday School Partnerships
Some of our adult Sunday school classes have partnered with missionaries serving across the world. Through these classes, Perdido Bay Baptist supports missionaries in Ukraine, Nicaragua, and a team preparing for Ethiopia. Further, our youth group sponsors a child through Compassion International.
Other Mission Efforts…
In 2013, our pastor was a part of a mission partnership to Ghana, Africa. Recently, many of our men were able to meet with Pastor Ohene from Ghana in June of 2014. The meeting revealed the simplicity of the Gospel and discipleship, and its need in our culture today.
Many in our church have a strong connection and partnership who serves an impoverished community in Kentucky. A few of our members will be serving there in July 2014.
