May God be gracious to us and bless us
and make his face to shine upon us,
that your way may be known on earth
your saving power among all nations.
Let the peoples praise you, O God;
let all the peoples praise you!
Let the nations be glad and sing for joy,
for you judge the peoples with equity
and guide the nations upon the earth.
At First Baptist Nixa, we are driven by the fundamental conviction that the only thing that will make the nations glad is the saving power of God in Christ Jesus. God has blessed us with the riches of His grace so that we may make that power known among the nations. That is why we passionately pray, give, and go in order that Jesus Christ may be trusted and treasured among all peoples. We earnestly desire to be a local church with a global impact for the gospel of Christ.
In addition to funding international missions through the International Mission Board (imb.org) and North American church planting through the North American Mission Board (namb.net), First Baptist Nixa also:
- sends short-term mission teams to Cuba, Nicaragua, and Haiti
- partners with Stuart & Lisa Bell to plant a church in downtown Seattle, WA
- partners with long-term missionaries in South Asia, East Asia, and Southeast Asia
- actively pursues additional opportunities to extend our global gospel reach
